Learners from Level 3 Plumbing and Level 3 Electrical Installations attended a major careers fair organised by Battersea Power Station, to highlight the significant number of employment and Apprenticeship opportunities available to them when they finish their course.
During the evnet learners spoke to a number of large employers including Mace and Sir Robert McAlpine to find out more about the relevant opportuniites available to them, and registered their details.
The event proved to be a huge success, and the College is going to work directly with these contractors to help organise learners submitting CVs to be considered for future roles.
South Thames College has picked up the award for Innovation of the Year for the collaboration with Wandsworth Oasis on a charity fashion show that showcased the type of sustainable fashion that can be re-used and upcycled.
It was a truly collaborative effort as students from a range of courses were involved in the show, gaining invaluable first-hand experience. The Art & Design students worked on style redesign of the Wandsworth Oasis clothes which were exhibited on the night with Beauty & Media Make up students styling the models. Construction students built the stage and the TV & Film Production students filmed throughout the event.
