European Social Fund Minister visits Ilderton Motor Project in Southwark.

On 6 October, 2005 Work and Pensions Minister for ESF, James Plaskitt MP, awarded achievement certificates to young people at IF's Southwark project.

Mr Plaskitt said: 'The aim of ESF is to give people the chance to learn new skills and get into jobs. My tour of the project enabled me to learn more about the training and work experience that is taking place. The skills and qualifications young people gain at the Ilderton Motor Project will help them in both their day-to-day lives and when they go on to get a job - in the motor industry or elsewhere.'

The visit was also attended by representatives from the Learning and Skills Council who also fund the project.

David Hughes, LSC Regional Director - London said: 'It is great to see a project that encourages young people into learning.

'The beauty of this project is that it teaches skills for life but also allows the young people to get recognised qualifications that enable them to get a trade and move on to employment. This course is teaching skills and qualifications that employers want.

'The European Social Fund is an invaluable way of plugging gaps in education and skills - it is really making a difference to the lives of people who live, work or learn in London'.
