Callum Kantounas, pictured below, – Level 3 Building Services Technician Apprentice has been put forward by WSP for the Mentor National Apprentice Award. This award is recognised by the Institute of Apprenticeships.
His employers and the college have completed the application showing how he has worked above and beyond. Callum has also had to put together a portfolio of work that he is doing in the workplace and to show he is up to the standards required.
Many of our students use their new found skills to generate income and set up in business or as freelances.
Francoise, pictured below, sold her first piece at this year’s Merton Art’s Festival. She has attended our glass making course, building up her skills, making supportive friends and growing in confidence, and has found a welcome additional source of income.
The South Thames College Business Centre represented the College Group at the Wandsworth Employment Fair held at the Wandsworth Civic Centre and were given the stage for an hour to present and demonstrate Barista skills.
The presentation, which covered the skills and knowledge required to become a Barista was given by one of our Level 3 Hospitality apprentices from Putney Pantry, together with one of our Trainers. The event was well attended and the presentation was reported Live on Riverside Radio.
Espressos, Cappucinos and Lattes were flowing; all with impressive art work.
