Seva is a Sanskrit word that describes the act of selfless love. Staff and Pupils worked with practitioners to provide a platform for discussions and opportunities, creating focus groups and mentor and support groups, with the aim to build an inclusive environment through positive discussion and action.

Learners from Level 1 Childcare have hosted a very successful Employer Fair for local Early Years providers.
As part of the event, held at the South Thames College Wandsworth Campus, the learners hosted 10 local organisations, including Noddy's Nursery, Little Bees, and The Play People.
During the morning Childcare learners from Levels 1 to 3 were able to talk to the employers, and gain an understanding of the types of jobs available, and expectations of staff in them.
The event proved to be so successful that 5 learners have now been invited for job interviews with some of the different providers who attended.
