Celebrations took place at The Young Vic to highlight the success of Southwark College students in completing the Supported Internship Programme. Seven students participated in the programme and had the opportunity to undertake specialised and bespoke internship placements with local employers, including The Young Vic, Guy's and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, and Hilton London Bankside.

Attendees included students and their family and friends and representatives from Southwark Colledge and local employers. The celebrations began with short films showcasing students in their intern roles and their successes during their journey’s followed by the students sharing their experiences of the programme.

Tramo Gillespie ad Jayanna Shorter–Almu shared their internship experience with the Young Vic, Moyi Sang spoke about the highlights of wokring at Hilton Bankside and celebrated completing her internship as Food and Beverage Assistant and Demelza Tootill shared her experience on an apprenticeship position in the NHS as a full-time Pharmacy Assistant.

The students then received awards presented by the employers and were recognised for their hard work and dedication throughout the programme. Representatives from partner organisations handed out the certificates to:

  • Jayanna Shorter–Almu
  • Marash Demnika Villacis
  • Michael Bye
  • Imon Sadiqul
  • Tramo Gillespie
  • Yoliba Okaparaeke
  • Lilly (Leoni) Sewell

Moyi Sang, intern at Hilton, said: “This was a wonderful opportunity for me to learn about hospitality. I learnt about providing excellent customer service to visitors and helped during breakfast service, which I enjoyed most. My confidence has improved by taking part in Southwark College’s internship programme as I was quite shy at first. Staff at Hilton Bankside have also been very helpful, and I am glad to be receiving my certificate today.”
