Helping women from disadvantaged backgrounds make new starts
This good practice example shows how Women's Technology Training Limited helps women prepare for work, further education or training.
Women's Technology Training Limited, known as Blackburne House Education (BHE), is a registered charity and is part of the Blackburne House Group (BHG). BHG covers five separate social enterprises with a shared set of values that define their approach to the education, training and empowerment of women.
BHE is situated in one of the most deprived areas of Liverpool, where many women have few or no qualifications. A significant number of learners are refugees, asylum
seekers, lone parents, long-term unemployed or carers. BHE also offers programmes for women in safe houses. Around 40% of learners are from minority ethnic groups.
This good practice example shows how BHE helps women from disadvantaged backgrounds develop confidence and skills that prepare them for work, further
education or training.
