I got onto the Youth Programme at 5E Ltd and an advisor supported me with employability skills and got a new job at the local Co-Op. 5E continues to help me with my University applications so hopefully I will be attending university.Henrique Altoe
I came to England from Colombia six months ago. I did not know how to speak English at all. I studied ESOL with 5E Ltd and now I am working and have a full-time job. I am very thankful to all the staff for their help and support.Harold Aramburo
I was a single parent looking for employment that would work around my daughter's school timing but I lacked confidence. 5E helped me to get into work as a Self-Employed Nanny and supported with me tax information, in-work support, training in interview skills and rebuilding my CVSu Wai Mon

Our Committment to the Environment
5E Ltd recognises that all its activities have a direct or indirect impact on the environment.
The Organisation’s Operating Plan includes an explicit vision to promote environmentally sustainable ways of working and living and to act in a sustainable and environmentally-enhancing way. Its core values include:
- Promoting sustainable development through active engagement with the beneficiaries on our programmes
- Reducing the organisations carbon footprint on the environment
To achieve this, a comprehensive environmental policy has been published. This has been developed to:
- Stimulate change in student and staff attitudes towards sustainability
- Document practical measures the organisation will take to contribute to environmental sustainability
- Display the positive impact we are having on the local environment
The environmental policy is supported by a formal Action Plan which is reviewed and updated on an annual basis by the organisation’s Environmental Officer.
Environmental performance targets and objectives were set in July 2013 and these are reviewed on an annual basis.
Accompanying policies - Purchasing Policy & Green IT Policy
Annual progress reports on the organisation’s quantitative and qualitative targets and objectives are presented to the Senior Management in July each year.
