VISTA (Vocational Insitute of Stamford Hill)

VISTA's work which has attained the Investors in People award, has done much to improve employability in this deprived area of London. Courses normally last 6 months leading to vocational qualifications in areas such as computing, child care, book-keeping, and learning English as a second language (ESL). An important aspect of VISTA's work is the provision of English-language training for recent immigrants including many refugees.
