In proud partnership with DWP Employer Engagement Team, The Apprenticeships and Jobs Fair welcomed students, local employers and Bromley, Bexley, Greenwich and Lewisham residents interested in finding out more about apprenticeships and jobs in the Borough.

A keen advocate for young people in her borough, Vicky Foxcroft, MP opened the event and spoke to students and exhibitors about the opportunities that apprenticeships can offer.

Visitors had the opportunity to browse the marketplace of stands and chat to current apprentices and employers.

Vicky said: “I attended one of last year’s events at the College, and I must say that this year has been even more impressive, there was a great range of different kinds of jobs and training opportunities open to local people. As a firm supporter of apprenticeships, I was glad to see so much engagement in our Borough.”

Asfa Sohail, Lewisham’s Principal, said: “I was so pleased to welcome Vicky to today’s event. A lot of work has gone into setting up the whole week’s activities, and this was a great way to launch what I hope will be a very successful week.”

Joanne Blunt, Employer Engagement Manager for DWP whose team organised the event, said: “I’m really pleased with how today has gone, the engagement is really high and I look forward to partnering with the College for future events.”

The College was fortunate to be able to welcome elected representatives from Lewisham Council to the event:

Cllr Silvana Kelleher (pictured above and right) said: “My great grandfather was one of the people who helped found SELTEC (the organisation that preceded Lewisham College). He would have been very proud of what has been achieved here. His intention was to significantly improve the lifechances of local young people – the atmosphere here is buzzing and it feels a positive way to combat local unemployment.”

Cllr Tauseef Anwar (pictured above and left) said: “I’m really enjoying meeting exhibitors – there is a great feel to the event. I am particularly impressed with the NHS Apprenticeship Programme, especially the Nursing Associate Apprenticeship when we are facing a nursing shortage.”
