As National Apprenticeship Week comes to an end, Southwark College is celebrating a packed week of events and activities that showcased the impact apprenticeships to hundreds of people who live in the borough.

Working in collaboration with the Department of Work and Pensions and local employers, Southwark College delivered a series of virtual events focusing on how apprenticeships can help build the future and how employers can benefit from hiring apprentices as they look to grow post Covid-19.

The week launched with the first Southwark College Virtual Apprenticeship Roadshow, a series of online assemblies and tutorials delivered to nearly 20 secondary schools across London. Helping young people to myth-bust apprenticeships and get ahead in the careers they are interested in, hundreds of pupils in years 8-11 attended interactive sessions with employability and apprenticeship advisors from the College.

In the community, the College’s Virtual Jobs and Apprenticeships Fair brought together local people with employers from a wide range of sectors to help them get ahead with their job search. Organisations such as Southwark Council, Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, London South Bank University, UK Power and Southwark Works, provided job seekers with the opportunity to hear more about the latest vacancies available as well as advice on CV, job applications and interview skills and getting into pre-apprenticeships, apprenticeships and sector-based work academies

Annette Cast, Principal at Southwark College, said: Apprenticeships have never been more important than they are in 2021. They give young people the chance to gain the skills, experience and qualifications to get ahead as well as helping communities and businesses to grow through increased productivity and a skilled workforce.

“The events hosted at Southwark College this week have been a great opportunity for young people and adults to find out more about the possibilities in London and how they can take the next step in their career despite the challenges this year.” 

To close off the week's celebrations, the College hosted a series of #AskAnEmployer, and #AskAnApprentice live interviews across socials with employers from across the Creative Industries, Healthcare and Digital sectors helping potential apprentices find out how they got into their careers and the apprenticeship and progression opportunities available to them.
