Project: Upskill

What I do: Hello my name is Karen and I have worked in East London all my working life - nearly 30 years.

The Upskill project is a fairly new project that supports people in the local area to find and access some of the opportunities available, to make positive changes in their life, to gain skills and experience and to help towards employment.

My role is to  research and gain knowledge of all the different opportunities that are out there in education, training, volunteering, work experience and employment and support people to access them and use them to shape their own future.

It has been such a interesting and exciting  role.

Outside of work: travelling , listening to music, reading and definitely not keeping fit!
