Read about how 'Stepping into Work' has helped customers at Aksa Homes.

Mrs Hussain

Learning online helped Mrs Hussain take a step into employment.

Mrs Hussain registered online through Aksa Homes for a free course available from The Housing e-Academy. The e-academy provides online courses, which are divided up into ‘mini modules’.

Mrs Hussain is used to using a computer, and so found it quite easy to access the courses on the internet. This meant she could work her way through the course at a time and pace to suit her and her family, in the privacy of her own home.

Mrs Hussain explained that the course was quite straightforward and would suit anyone with a basic knowledge of computers. Aksa also organises group workshops and drop in sessions in various community centres.

Lots of the modules included learning around getting into work. This helped Mrs Hussain to get a job.

Initially, Mrs Hussain wanted to learn more about different cultures and building a better community. However, the wide choice of mini modules available meant she was also able to learn lots about tenants’ rights and responsibilities.
