The best of Lewisham Southwark College’s apprentices were recognised at an awards evening at Southwark College on Thursday 7 March.

Awards were presented by Director of Apprenticeships, Employment and Skills, Vanessa Packham in 7 categories, recognising the best performances among more than 400 apprentices who follow programmes in a wide range of subject areas including hospitality and catering, construction, customer service and more. Vanessa Packham, said: “For the third year running our apprenticeship provision has been well above the national average for success rates and our award winners are a reflection of that. They are outstanding students who are injecting vitality and creativity into their jobs.” She added: “Learning while working is extremely valuable in developing practical skills and it takes a great deal of commitment and drive from our apprentices – and their employers - to achieve these high levels of success. The Awards also recognised the Apprenticeship Employer of the year – construction company, Masher Brothers, beat off stiff competition from the other employers shortlisted to carry off the award.
