Women’s Programmes
City Gateway Women’s Programmes provide exciting opportunities for local women to gain independence, grow in confidence, access employment and develop skills in a supportive community environment.
For 15 years, City Gateway has been successfully offering friendly and supported learning and development programmes for women in East London. Our Women’s Programmes Centre in Stepney is a friendly, busy place, which welcomes over 100 women each week – from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds.

We provide accredited study opportunities including vocational training, Apprenticeships and ESOL, as well as running a number of drop-in activities and courses, all in a safe female only environment.

Last year we ran 65 programmes and welcomed over 400 learners from 14 different ethnicities. Our youngest learner was 19 and our eldest 81.
We’d like to help you gain confidence and build skills, no matter where you’re starting from. Our Courses include:

Volunteering Experience
Employability Support
Confidence Building & Empowerment
Functional Skills English, Maths and ICT
Why do we do this? Because we genuinely see the potential in women across our community and believe all women deserve the support and training to achieve their ambitions and be the author of their own success story.
‘The City Gateway staff are wonderful and friendly. They offer a variety of different courses that will boost your skills and help you gain experience.’

Do something amazing! We are always looking for volunteers who can give some time to improving the lives of those we work with. You can help us as a group facilitator, with reading support during our literacy lunch sessions or help with admin, finance and reception duties.
