Welcome to PATRA

Under Section 158 of the Equality Act 2010, PATRA Incorporating ACDA is able to offer traineeships of 12 months with on-the-job training with employers which allows trainees to study for a qualification.

We provide personal development, guidance and counselling to support aspects of training that may be necessary.

Our aim is to provide opportunities for people from the BME communities, offering them the chance to improve their skills in order to help them to compete in the labour market.

We undertake research which identifies gaps and opportunities in relation to various issues within the BME community and also policy development in the public sector, which involves liaising with other African Caribbean agencies to anticipate and deal with any difficulties that may affect the community at large.
