Welcome

“I’d like to welcome you to the 2012/13 Southwark College full-time prospectus. I am the Principal and Chief Executive of Southwark College. In the time that I have been at the College I have been immensely impressed with the dedication and commitment of all learners and staff at the College. We have some fantastic facilities at the College and we have invested in the development of new training facilities to continuously update and broaden our curriculum. This guide contains just a few of our many success stories – students have achieved fantastic things during their time at Southwark College and I hope that their stories will inspire you to join us.”

“Southwark College is firmly committed to providing outstanding vocational training for people in our local community. We will help you to learn new skills, gain new qualifications and start you on a path to a successful career. Whether you want to be successful in business, work in health and care, become a florist, an engineer, an athlete, a musician or a doctor or start one of hundreds of different careers open to you, we can help you to achieve your ambitions. We have partnered with a range of businesses to help you to improve your employment prospects. For example, the owners and management of the Shard of Glass give our students work experience and senior executives of Daimler AG recently met our engineering and business students to exchange experiences. I am pleased to announce that we are now able to provide vocational training and qualifications in a wider range of areas than ever before. Our brand new state-of-the-art hair and beauty salons and our new construction facilities will accept their first full-time intake of students shortly – would you like to be part of this exciting new venture? If so, then call us now to arrange an interview. We have a great range of new training facilities that provide real work environments for students to train for qualifications in hospitality & catering, floristry, personal training, sports therapy, hairdressing, beauty therapy, construction and much much more. These facilities have been sponsored by Sellar who are the developers of the Shard of Glass and Southwark Council and we have direct links to employers who will be recruiting staff to work in the Shard and are working closely with us, so not only will you get training but we'll improve your prospects of employment too. I look forward to welcoming you to Southwark College and sharing your journey to a successful future.” Ruth Gilbert Principal and Chief Executive

On my way to university

ESOL

“I’m studying ESOL Level 1, WorkSkills Level 1, Functional Skills IT Level 1 and Functional Skills Maths Level 1.

English for Speakers of Other Languages

I started 2 years ago when I was 15 years old and did not speak any English. Since then I have learnt a lot of English and I feel much more confident than before.

Southwark College works with learners from all over the world to help them to develop more confidence in using English as a foreign language. You will develop English language skills including reading, writing, speaking and listening.

I came to Southwark College because one of my mother's friends had studied here and she recommended it to us. I like the teachers and the lessons that we do. Especially this year it is better organised. The breaks are short so we don't waste time during the day. I haven't decided exactly what I want to do in the future, but I am interested in IT and Engineering so I hope I can do that after this year.”
