About Us

Olga Education & Training Project (OETP) established in 1999 is a not-for-profit organisation aimed at improving services for socially excluded and disadvantaged people, groups and individuals in and around East London.

Our aim is to help unemployed people aged 18+ to maximise their potential, realise their ambitions and secure greater employment opportunities by obtaining the correct skills for work and skills for life.

At Olga, we offer an excellent learning environment that is accessible to all.  In this way we help advance our community by developing amongst our beneficiaries’ skills, capacities and capabilities which will help them participate fully in society as independent, mature and responsible individuals.  We will achieve this by providing them with a high quality of education, training and advice.
Tower Hamlets is a diverse multi-cultural and multi-ethnic community.  To reflect this we strictly adhere to the principles of Equal Opportunities in regards to the educational services that we provide to the community and in our recruitment policy for staff and students. We have fully qualified, committed and caring staffs that seek to encourage and support every student so that he or she can develop their potential and personality. We show by example the importance of respect and moral values for all the people in the community.  We consider people as individuals and have a commitment to recognize and cater for their personal needs in regards to education, sociability and moral sensibility.
Our course and training help individuals to develop new skills, update existing skills and provide an opportunity to meet other learners with similar interests. We are dedicated to providing our clients with cutting edge professional training aimed at enhancing your job skills and career prospects.  We offer all our clients a personalised, teaching and learning experience of the highest quality.
