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.
Learners from the School of Health, Sport, Business, and Salon Services recently supported local charity Wandsworth Oasis with running their 30th anniversary production of Bizet's opera, 'Carmen'
The show took place at Wandsworth Civic Suite, and as part of the evening Health & Social Care learners hosted a stand in the refreshments area, providing information on the work of Wandsworth Oasis, and HIV/AIDS.
In addition to this, Business learners supported with events management, by helping to set-up the venue, act as Ambassadors, and manage the registration desk at the start of the evening.
