Our Level 2 and Level 3 Sports students attended a workshop on careers in Sport and employability skills at Fulham Football Club’s ground, Craven Cottage. Jim Hart, Fulham FC Employability Coach, delivered the workshop.
The focus during the workshop was on career pathways and roles in Sport, developing personal and social skills and the employability skills and attributes that employers such as Fulham FC look for from their staff. This employer collaboration offers a great opportunity to learners and is a valued partnership for the College.
South Thames College’s Employability and Work Experience team have worked closely with employers to develop a series of Employer Inspirational Talks for students across a variety of curriculum areas, throughout the academic year. This will see employers give overviews on career opportunities in their sector and their expectations as employers.
Our Level 2 and Level 3 Sports students enjoyed being put through their paces in a taster session delivered by Citycise, a fitness club formed by professional athletes. The session was run by ex-professional rugby player Netani Talei with the help of ex-fitness model Natasha Murray and ex-professional rugby player John Wilson. The learners went through a series of physical and mental challenges, which they took in their stride and rose to the challenge.
