National Apprenticeship Week 2020 began at Southwark College with staff from the College's Apprenticeships team heading out to schools and organisations delivering MythBuster sessions.

The misconceptions people have about Apprenticeships were discussed, such as: Apprenticeships only being good for people who didn’t go to school or Apprenticeships won’t lead to a full- time job.

These myths were debunked by the College’s career experts who instead praised Apprenticeships as a great pathway of learning.

The audience also received an insight into what Apprenticeships they could apply for at the College. These come in a variety of industries such as Construction, Hospitality, Business and Creative Arts.

At the entrance of the College, a display was put up for students to admire as they walked in. Facts about Apprenticeships and the types of Apprenticeships the College offer were spread across the board.

Southwark College is an ‘outstanding’ apprenticeship provider with an achievement rate of 14.1% above the national average*; they also have excellent relationships with a variety of employers.
