As the most culturally diverse neighbourhood in Calderdale, Park Ward has a long history as a welcome hub for migrant communities from across the globe to arrive, settle and flourish in Halifax and the surrounding areas.
This is as true today as it was when the first generation of South Asian migrants began arriving in the post-war era of the 1950’s and 60’s. To enable migrant families and individuals to make the most of their new lives in the UK, Halifax Opportunities Trust is proud to deliver a number of Inclusive Integration programmes, including ESOL (English as a Second or Other Language) from our base at Hanson Lane Enterprise Centre.
Throughout the year we have had many highlights for all our Inclusive Integration delivery. These include excellent results in our students achieving nationally recognised qualifications, accessing a range of vocational courses that enable skill enhancement and through our key worker support model a large number of participants have secured successful employment.
