Good jobs for Ealing

Councillor Peter Mason, Leader of Ealing Council comments: “As outlined in Ealing’s Plan for Good Jobs, we are determined to help you – Ealing residents to fulfil your potential, gain knowledge and skills so you can compete for new or better work.

“After supporting over 4,000 residents to successfully achieve over 10,000 qualifications in recent years, it is our ambition to deliver at least 12,000 new qualifications and training programmes for people in Ealing looking to upskill. Come at Southall learning fun fair on 15 December and have a look at the new learning available to you. What better place to do this than Southall, a vibrant local economy that is full of potential.”

Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, cabinet member for decent living incomes adds: “If you are looking for engaging and educational activities for your children or those in your care on a cold winter day, come along to Southall learning fun fair. Adults can learn new skills, increase their confidence with maths, explore the many services offered in the library and even receive employment support.
