Giving support, giving encouragement, giving back – our contribution with Refuaid
We all need a helping hand at times in life, and no-one more so than someone forced to leave their home, their country, and their loved ones because of fear, conflict or persecution. Refuaid* are a charity organisation in the UK that supports and facilitates a variety of ways for people with refugee status to gain access to employment, education and language development in the UK.
Many of those who have found asylum in the UK (and other countries) bring skills and knowledge that is valuable to society and the job market, particularly in sectors where there is greater demand. Opportunities to use those skills and find meaningful roles provide the means to recover dignity, confidence and integrate into new environments.
For many highly qualified individuals, developing their English language skills is an essential part of reclaiming their original professions or careers, for example doctors or nurses in the Health Sector. Achieving a specific level in English usually by passing exams and tests – like OET** – are required by many organisations, and this can be a challenging – and often expensive – process.
Partnering with Refuaid, class-e is privileged to be involved in this process by providing free tuition to medical professionals who need to achieve their goal of passing the OET, giving them support, encouragement and feedback as we do with all our clients. We hope our contribution, however small, will make a big difference to someone’s life.
