Apprenticeships are an important part of the provision on offer at South Thames College and through our close links with employers of all size from National Companies to SMEs, we have developed Apprenticeships that meet the requirements of their industry. South Thames College is part of the wider South Thames Colleges Group, consisting of Merton College, Carshalton College, Kingston College, which supports around 1,200 Apprentices in over 20 employment sectors at any one time, from Engineering to Childcare.
Apprenticeships are available at different levels depending on the individual’s previous experience and give students the opportunity to earn and learn at the same time, developing skills for work and gaining industry recognised qualifications, giving learners a head start in their career. Whilst vising, Sarah had the chance to take part in workshops and talk to Apprentices about their experiences and career aspirations.
Marsha de Cordova, MP for Battersea commented, "It was fantastic to see so many inspiring apprentices at South Thames College and to hear how these apprenticeships have furthered their career aspirations. I was so impressed by their commitment and skills, and by what is offered by South Thames College.”
