Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Adult Education

Last year: 60 adult education programmes reached 814 adults.

We were able to provide adult education projects across the country ranging from self esteem and aspiration programmes, functional skills in numeracy and literacy, Teaching Assistant training courses, ESOL courses, employment readiness course and volunteering mentoring/training.

The range of courses we offered were able to impact the lives of over 800 adults from different backgrounds, helping them on their journey to reaching their potential.

One course of particular note was the Safeguarding for Mothers workshops, aimed at empowering mothers to safeguard themselves and their children against modern threats. These include cyber terrorism and violence. Oasis partnered with Empowering Minds to delivery workshops to local women across 4 weeks.

Spotlight on…Oasis Hub Hobmoor

At Oasis Hub Hobmoor, learners from the local community accessed a range of education opportunities including Teaching English to speakers of other languages and Teaching Assistant courses. The skills gained supported our learners to develop their CVs and improve their chances of employment. Moreover, it decreased risks of social isolation, and many of our learners developed new friendships and social networks.

I have thoroughly enjoyed studying Teaching Assistant course level 3 at Oasis Hobmoor. The course was interesting and relevant. Mrs Rehman was brilliant in helping me secure a school placement and offered me support and guidance throughout the placement. I learnt many new skills which have helped me secure employment at a different school. I would highly recommend doing the TA course offered by Oasis Hobmoor.

Abigail’s Story

Abigail joined the team at Oasis Hub Lister Park on a 6-month work experience programme providing much needed administration skills for a project supporting refugees. Abigail joined the team as a very shy person, however through the mentoring support of the Hub Leader she flourished, gaining confidence and self-belief.  “When I first started working at Oasis, I was a quiet person who didn’t like to open up to people. On the very first day I felt part of the team and knew my opinion mattered - that was the main reason why I wanted to do my work experience at Oasis Community Hub Lister Park.”

With her newly acquired administration skills and her increase in personal confidence Abigail is on her way to achieving a permanent job.

I have learnt so much from my role within the Oasis Hub Lister Park, giving me a better chance at getting a great job
