Fwd: FW: Learn a Trade, get a CSCS card and employment on building sites


Hi all,

 

I have attached a list of short courses (under 16 hours per week) designed to support people back to work. These courses are free and are based in Acton and Barons Court campuses.

 

There is also an opportunity suitable for anyone who is interested in construction - please contact the Project Manager directly on stuart.allen@cwc.ac.uk with any inquiries/referrals.

 

Opportunity:                     Construction training, CSCS card with good likelihood of employment

Timing:                                 8 week course, 9:30am – 3pm Thursday and Friday

Location:                             City of Westminster College, the Queens Park Centre, Saltram Crescent, W9 3HW (10 minutes walk from Westbourne Park underground station)

Referral process:             Email me and I will meet with the client and book them a visit to the project (rolling recruitment).

Restrictions:                      Not open to clients on replacement medication

 

Westminster College have an excellent opportunity for clients interested in construction, or learning a trade. It's two days a week practical training (plastering, building stud walls, tiling, etc.) in a very supportive environment, and it's open to anyone who is willing to learn – there's no requirement to have previous experience. Clients get a CSCS card as well as learning valuable skills. The only restriction is that clients cannot be on opiate replacement medication and cannot be intoxicated while in the workshop – this is for safety reasons.

 

Once people graduate from the course there is an opportunity for paid site work with a social enterprise that works in partnership with the construction project – most graduates go on to find work.

 

The campus is 10 minutes walk from Westbourne Park station so it is easy to reach from Hammersmith / Shepherds Bush / Goldhawk Road on the Hammersmith and City Line. Travel is paid – £5 per day – and the man who runs it is a really good teacher and has a very supportive approach.

 

The project is closed for the next 2 weeks so interested people can sign up after Easter.

 

Kind regards,

Heather

Poet in the City invites you to

Viking Sagas

Friday 30th May 2014
in the BP Lecture Theatre at the British Museum
Great Russell Street, London, WC1B 3DG
from 6.30pm for a 7pm start

Poet in the City presents an event exploring the rich and fascinating history of the Icelandic Sagas.

As inspiration for countless works of art and as an ongoing source of imaginative fuel for contemporary poets and poetry, the sagas remain one of the richest resources in literary history. 

Come and experience these iconic poems performed live in the heart of the British Museum, while upstairs a longboat sits among the armour and riches of the Vikings themselves. Celebrated Icelandic poet and author Gerdur Kristny will be joined by experts in Viking literature and heritage.

Part of the British Museum's BP Exhibition Vikings: life and legend.

Gerdur Kristny

won the Icelandic Literature Awards 2010 for her book of poetry Blóðhófnir (Bloodhoof) which is based on an ancient Nordic myth. Gerdur has published collections of poetry and short stories, novels, books for children and a biography, for which she received The Icelandic Journalism Award in 2005. Gerdur's play, The Dancing at Bessastadir, based on two of her children's books, premiered in the Icelandic National Theatre in Reykjavik in February 2011.

DR Emily Letherbridge

holds a PhD in Old Norse-Icelandic language and literature from the University of Cambridge. She is currently a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Iceland. She is writing a book on the Icelandic sagas, due to be published by Crymogea in 2015.

Gareth Williams

is curator at the British Museum responsibility for British and European coinage, about AD 500 to about 1180. Within this area he specialises in Anglo-Saxon and Viking coinage. His wider research includes the history of the British Isles and Scandinavia in the early Middle Ages, and the history and archaeology of the Vikings.

Women's Empowerment Programme at The ClementJames Centre


 

Dear all,

 

I hope you are well. I'm writing regarding the second cycle of the Women's Empowerment Programme at The ClementJames Centre. After a successful first round, we are looking forward to starting another course in a few weeks' time.

 

The course will focus primarily on confidence building and personal and professional development. It will enable participants to reflect on their interests, recognise their achievements, and think about any aspirations and goals they would like to pursue. In addition, it will give women the opportunity to participate in various workshops on cooking and healthy eating, DIY skills, and music to name a few.

                                                                                  

The eight week course will begin on Thursday 1st May and take place at our centre close to Latimer Road tube station.

 

There will be a taster and registration session on Thursday 17th April beginning at 1:15 – 2:30pm (RSVP essential) where prospective participants will be able to gain an overview of the course, meet women who have just completed the programme, and have the opportunity to ask any questions. Participants who wish to sign up for the programme must attend the taster session.

 

As the course takes place in a small group setting, we only have six places remaining, and these will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. If you have any clients who would benefit from such a programme, please ask them to get in touch by Monday 14th April to let us know they would like to attend the taster day.

 

Finally, if you would like to see what we have been up to over the past few weeks, please have a look at our blog, here: http://cjcwep.wordpress.com/

 

Best wishes,

Engaged for more than 10 years in a passionate effort to revive Romanian court and urban music of the 18th and early 19th centuries, Trei Parale, a group of versatile musicians playing old instruments, has succeeded in rescuing some of the juiciest scores of this forgotten, yet marvellous, tradition. Trei Parale was formed in 2003 and is made of Florin Iordan – kobsa, pipes
Daniel-Mircea Pop – voice, pipes
Mihai Balabaș – violin
Dinu-Traian Petrescu – percussion
THE ALLURE OF TYPOGRAPHY

Despite technological advances, books remain as refined an object as ever and no less desirable. To prove that exquisite typography is thriving, our exhibition will showcase the most beautifully designed Romanian books of 2013, curated by the Association for Performance and Culture in collaboration with the Romanian Cultural Institute in London. Introduced by Mihai Mitricã, the Executive Director of Romanian Federation of Publishers, and Adina Pasca, the exhibition's curator
