Boosting careers

Professional-courses-in-londonSouth Thames College is launching new courses to increase its presence in the business and professional courses market. It capitalises on the many people who are looking to boost their prospects at work.

Run at the Wandsworth Campus, the university-level courses start this February and are available in areas like marketing, entrepreneurship, leadership, and teacher education.

For people looking to increase their skills and get ahead in the job market, the practical qualifications offer quality-assured and industry relevant content. Programmes are validated by well known professional membership bodies including the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) and the Association of Business Executives (ABE).

Andy Ginn, Director of Higher Education and International, said: "For people looking to boost their skills and be better qualified in management, leadership or specific professions like marketing or project management, these short courses are ideal. They give great insight through bite-sized qualifications from credible awarding bodies - all taught by staff with considerable experience and expertise.

"We know that for many potential students, a full-time course just isn't practical when they're already in work and have busy lives. In a competitive job market these new, flexible courses can give people the edge over their rivals and their professional development is truly accessible with South Thames College."

The Wandsworth Campus boasts specialist facilities including a dedicated Higher Education Study Centre, which accommodates individual, private study or regular employability workshops and study sessions. Courses range from 24 to 120 taught hours depending on the course and applicants can choose from part-time day or evening classes, full-time intensive courses or individual modules on a standalone basis.
