This week South Thames College played host to over 40 major Construction organisations, by being the venue for Wandsworth WorkMatch’s ‘Construct Wandsworth 2020’ event.
During the day learners were able to meet the employers, and gain significant information on employment and Apprenticeship opportunities for after their current course. They were also able to gain a real insight into the employability skills and traits these organisations look for.
The event proved to be a real success, with a number of learners registering their details with the employers to be contacted for future information.
Jason Obahiagbon, Senior Business Engagement Officer (Construction) at WorkMatch commented: "We are delighted at the success of the event yesterday, bringing in developers, contractors, residents and the college under one roof. The feedback received from both visitors and employers was positive. We are very grateful to STC for supporting us in hosting this event. We look forward to continuing our working relationship with south Thames college to provide training and employment opportunities to our residents."
