5E Ltd was established in 1998 to provide New Deal and work-based learning and welfare to work programmes for adults initially in North London. The organisation was successful in obtaining funding from a range of funders including the European Social Fund (ESF), European Regeneration Development Fund (ERDF), Single Regeneration Budget and other programmes.
In August 2006, the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) (now the Skills Funding Agency) awarded 5E Ltd a contract to provide Train to Gain programmes. In August 2007, North London LSC (now SFA) awarded 5E a contract to provide the Employability Skills Programme (ESP) followed by the Skills for Jobs – Local Employer Partnerships (LEP) provision in 2008. We currently deliver over twenty projects from 8 centres around North and North East London.
