We are delighted to congratulate our very own Anila Saif who has been presented with an award from Paddington Development Trust for her work in supporting clients with a second language.
Anila works with people who need extra support because English is not their first language, providing advice on local courses as well as helping to run our community leadership programme. Her work has involved helping GRoW clients to move forward into education, training and employment by undertaking accredited courses and activities that have helped them become more independent in completing job applications and preparing them for job interviews.
Anila said “I feel really honoured to have been presented this award from PDT’s Head of Programmes. It’s lovely to be appreciated for the work I am doing and I wasn’t expecting it at all! I must say that many of our clients have improved their English speaking so much since Liz and I have started working with them.
It means a lot to me that I am able to use my multi-lingual skills to help people in this way and to help them towards achieving qualifications and careers.”
