Students at Southwark College participated in specialised careers workshops designed to raise awareness on the career pathways available in the engineering and public sectors. Industry experts, including representatives from Virgin Atlantic and London Met Police, delivered the workshops, where students heard about various options and career opportunities in their chosen fields. 

Virgin Atlantic’s representative shared information on their apprenticeships and graduate schemes, which young people interested in pursuing a career in engineering can apply for. During the session, apprentices and graduates working in the organisation shared their experiences and highlighted the opportunities available for women in STEM. 

Sumaya, a Science student at Southwark College, said: "The session was inspirational and helpful in thinking about my next steps after college. Learning about the opportunities in engineering encourages more people, especially young women, to consider careers within the sector." 

London Met police officers delivered a talk to Health and Social Care students, sharing their experiences working in the public sector and the type of roles students in Health and Social Care courses can consider as career options. 

Julius Ombok, Met Police Officer, said: "I was pleased to deliver this session to Southwark College students; they were very engaged and asked many questions about my career journey in the police force. I hope the workshop helps young people identify the different career options available in the police and public sectors and to consider applying for these opportunities as their next step after college or university." 

Southwark College's careers service offers information, advice and guidance and provides the opportunity for students to hear from individuals with industry experience to support them in achieving their goals and career aspirations. Find out more at
