On the 31 January 2019, South Thames College played host to the annual Wandsworth Construction Jobs Fair, in partnership with London Borough of Wandsworth Council’s Work Match division. The recruitment event attracted over 100 experienced workers in the field of construction and young people looking to enter the industry.
A big congratulations goes to students who recently completed the CIBTAC Level 4 Diploma in Advanced Skin Studies and Clinical Aesthetics. The five students finished the course after 15 months of hard work with a series of written and practical exams, over two days in January 2019. The students are pictured with Examiner, Christine Clarke from CIBTAC.
The Beauty Therapy department are proud of this Level 4 course which is a groundbreaking qualification with South Thames College the only College to offer it in London. The course comprises 8 modules which can mainly be studied online with just eight practical days in College.
Jane Williams, Course Tutor, said: “The feedback from Christine was excellent and we all enjoyed the process very much. I was particularly happy that Christine thought our students were working at a very high level and that our presentation of the students’ work, in personalised booklets, was outstanding practice. We await the results of the exams - but feel very proud of the students’ hard work.”
On Thursday 10 January, the first 18 Mammography Associate Practitioner Apprentices attended an official launch of the new Apprenticeship which is being delivered at St George's Hospital, one of the UK’s largest teaching hospitals.
The course began development in 2017 when Public Health England identified a workforce shortage and colleagues from the Manchester Academy, National Training Centres, Health Education England, the Society of Radiographers and managers from NHS Trusts set up a mammography trailblazer group to find a way to meet the staffing needs of breast screening centres across England.
