Working Together for Work

Aspire Sussex Adult Education and partners have been successful in bids to the Big Lottery Building Better Opportunities programme and have received funding totalling just over £1m. They will be leading two new projects called Working Together for Work and Local Learning Perspectives across the Coast to Capital LEP area (East and West Sussex, Surrey, Brighton and Hove).

The two projects involve working with a range of partners who will bring expertise to provide targeted family-focused provision through family learning and community inclusion, supporting hard to reach groups and individuals to return to work.

Both projects have the potential to significantly improve the lives of individuals, families and local communities. Our teams and partners have been working on the development stage of these projects since we received initial funding in November 2015 and we are looking forward to offering new courses and opportunities to volunteer.

Building Better Opportunities is funded through joint investment from the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund.

The WEA is pleased to be a partner in the Working Together for Work project.
