Simon Phillips's Recent Activity

"At St Mungo’s, our literacy and numeracy classes are well attended by women, it is often 40-50% women (women make up around 30% of residents). It is a good stepping stone for clients who find the idea of mainstream college intimidating to get used to the group learning environment. Many women do go on to college in the community. We see a lot of women from other countries as part of ESOL training. I am aware that in some countries women still do not have access to education in the same way as men, so this may be why we see more with low literacy and numeracy levels."
