Halifax Bank are supporting our Level 2 Business Course students by delivering a series of three Employability sessions at the College as part of the Careers Clusters project.
The first of these sessions took place on 5th December 2018, where the focus was on learners identifying their key strengths and how these potentially matched a vacancy for the position of the Halifax Customer Advisor.
The second session will progress on to preparing for the interview for this role, with the final session being a series of mock interviews using the Halifax framework for this position.
Students on a range of creative industries courses supported the prestigious official launch of FilmMerton on Monday 26 November 2018 at the New Wimbledon Theatre. This event marked the official launch of FilmMerton, the brain child of John Merriman, Chair of Merton’s Culture Advisory Group, which won a Cultural Impact Award as part of the Mayor of London's London Borough of Culture initiative. This award provides funding to bring film to the whole of Merton in 2019, creating pop-up cinemas and short films curated by the community and guest curators.
Students on the HND Creative Media Production produced the FilmMerton trailer, which premiered at the launch event to an audience of over 700. Students on the Level 3 Creative Media Production & Technology UAL Extended Diploma (Film) course provided invaluable technical support for the event as lighting and sound crew, runners, front of house and stage management. The event organisers were full of praise for the students and the level of professionalism and responsibility they demonstrated throughout the day.
South Thames College was delighted to host the Building a Career with Dyslexia event on 20 November, in association with A2i Dyslexia.
It was an inspiring evening that also offered an opportunity for learners to complete Work Experience, under the direction of the charity’s CEO, by supporting event operations:
- Creative Media Production & Technology UAL Extended Diploma - Level 3 students filmed the event and are now making a short version for the charity’s website/future promotional work
- Business BTEC Extended Diploma - Level 3 students supported with event management including room setup and acting as Ambassadors, welcoming all the guests and accompanying them to their seats.
