A LIFELINE has been given to job hunters in pats of the East End with some of the highest rates of unemployment in the country.
The City of London Corporation is supporting the two year Spitalfields Training for Employment Project which aims to help 90 people from Whitechapel, Weavers and Spitalfields and Banglatown and two city wards get jobs.
The scheme will be run by East London Advanced Technology and Training and will offer a range of help including
financial assistance towards childcare costs or an interview suit, IT and business administration training.

After an in-depth 'barriers-to-work' assessment, each job-hunter will tackle their Individual Development Plan with 12 hours of free support, mostly in the form of one-to-one work with an expert advisor.
Stuart Fraser, the chairman of policy and resources at the City of London Corporation, says, "The pursuit of long-term employment is often hampered by a variety of obstacles for people living in and around the City. The Spitalfields Training for Employment Project was designed to tackle this problem and motivate the community. There is a vast spectrum of jobs available in the Square Mile and we want to see local residents compete for them."
