This project aims to provide a series of ESOL classes incorporating
employability and personal development skills for learners participating on the

and employability of individuals who have English as a second language. By
incorporating employability into the ESOL classes, learners receive expert
knowledge in job searching, work place etiquette and so much more. Our

Boldness be My Friend
JETS project entitled ‘Boldness be my Friend’, which is funded through BBCs
Children In Need programme will enable young people to develop interactive
communication skills, understand the importance of team relationships and
encourage them to become role models for their community.
The principle aim of the course which is available for young people between the
ages of 13-18, is to teach generic leadership skills such as organisation,
planning, communication and teamwork through the medium of sport. There will be
three groups of 20 young people in Derby participating in the leadership
courses.
Mohammed Sharief, Executive Director of JET commented: “In 2010, we ran a Pilot
Community Sports Leadership course which was massively oversubscribed so we were
delighted to be able to extend this opportunity through BBC Children in Need
into our community this year.
The majority of these young people often lack parental support, are often
excluded or self-excluded and really are the most disadvantaged and vulnerable
section of our society.

Community Organising delivered by Locality and Regenerate. The program is funded

communities where they can feel a sense of pride and ownership.
Community Organisers listen actively to local residents to build trust, respect
and relationships with them. They will explore loves, concerns, hopes and
visions of the area they live in. Community Organisers motivate and enable
individuals to take action by developing their leadership and acquiring new
skills. Changes that local community members make to their communities are
changes that matter to them and passionate to bring to the area they live in.
Local organisations in different areas recruit and host a team of Community
organiser s. In Derby Jobs, Education & Training (JET) are delighted to take on
3 Community Organisers to work in Derby’s communities. JET’s staff and
volunteers live in and come from the community and so are excited to be involved
in a program encouraging local people to get involved and make positive changes
to the areas they live in. JET has provided the base for the Community
Organisers for their 12 months of training in Foundations of Community
Organising. JET has offered advice and guidance and the benefit of their local
knowledge to support the Community Organisers throughout the year.
