Get Involved

Your options

With your help we can provide a better learning environment for our current students, strengthen our alumni network and create a richer community throughout the College for past, present and future students.

No matter how big or small a way you wish to get involved, any participation from former students or learners is invaluable. Our Alumni Association is all about building lasting connections, enriching education and giving something back to our former students.

Provide a Work Experience Opportunity

Come and Talk to Our Students

At Lewisham and Southwark Colleges we’re strong believers in ‘learning by doing’, which is why work experience is built into most of our courses. By providing a work experience opportunity you’ll give a student the chance to get real, hands-on experience of working life and boost their employability. As a business, you’ll benefit from an injection of fresh ideas and enthusiasm, and an extra pair of hands in your workplace.

Hearing about the success of someone who was once in their position, and the range of opportunities available after they finish College, can really help to inspire current students. We’d love to welcome you back to share your story – either for a guest talk or in a less informal setting such as at one of our careers evenings.

Find Out About Hiring an Apprentice

Provide a Testimonial

Apprentices are a great resource for businesses, giving employers access to a stream of young people who are enthusiastic, ambitious and loyal. With 96% of employers who take on an apprentice reporting a benefit to their business, and 80% saying that apprenticeships reduce staff turnover, why wait? We’re always on the lookout for testimonials from former students about their experiences since leaving College and how studying has helped them to achieve their career goals. If you’d be happy to complete a short online interview which will be shared through the Alumni Stories section, please click below.
