Southwark College hosted a Youth Opportunities Fair and Community Open Day this week to help young people take their next steps and introduce them to employment and training opportunities in the area as well as courses available at the College.

Local organisations and employer partners attended the fair, including St Giles, Guys and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and Elevated Minds CIC, who were on hand to share valuable information about the services and support available in the borough.

Annette Cast, Principal at Southwark College, said: “The belief that everyone should be able to access education and employment opportunities, regardless of their circumstances, is central to the institution of Southwark College.

“This Colleges Week, we are delighted to provide information about the courses and support we offer to help people achieve their career ambitions, and we look forward to hosting similar events in the future.”

Information about different professions and pathways into employment in various sectors was also available at the event.

Jo Young, a representative of Guys and St Thomas’ NHS Trust, said: “It’s been a pleasure to take part in this exciting event to provide information on the many different career paths within the NHS to support young people in their next steps.”

Students at Southwark College had the opportunity to attend this event and learn about the employability support available at the College and externally.

Mame Dianna Faye, Health and Social Care apprentice at Southwark College, said: “I’ve learned so much throughout my time at the College, and this event has given me the chance to find out how I can achieve my goal of becoming a midwife.”
