To celebrate National Careers and Apprenticeships Weeks South Thames College hosted an Employer Breakfast on Friday 8th March with the Honourable Member of Parliament for Battersea, Marsha de Cordova (Shadow Minister Work & Pensions/Disabled People) delivering the keynote. We were joined at this auspicious event by representatives from over 70 organisations across a range of sectors where they had the opportunity to network with each other.
Jamie Stevenson, Director of Business Partnerships, South Thames Colleges Group commented: “South Thames College recognises its role in the importance of preparing individuals for work which is sustainable and allows them to progress and achieve economic prosperity. This can only be done by working in partnership with our local employers. We as a collective can make sure that we have the right skills and training for today’s jobs and those future jobs that don’t yet exist.”
The breakfast also offered the opportunity to hear about the latest opportunities that the College offers to support local organisations, including: recruitment of apprentices and trainees, providing individuals for work experience and industry placements, help with recruitment for hard to fill vacancies and producing training programmes to meet individual business needs.
