It’s quite common to see apprentices become full-time members of staff once they finish their apprenticeships. This is great for you, as the employer, because you can build a workforce that has been trained by you and understands the values of your company. As a college, it’s fantastic to see apprentices go on to secure permanent roles within their company, and we have often seen these lead to supervisory or managerial positions.
Havering College host a number of open evenings throughout the year to give you a flavour of what we have to offer. Whether you’re considering higher education, an apprenticeship, or are looking to become an adult learner, come along to our next open evening on Thursday 18 January 2018 to find out how we can help you achieve you academic and career goals.
The Christmas decorations are back in the loft and it’s cold and dark outside. Your bank balance has taken a pounding and you’re struggling to fasten the button on your jeans, suffering from the Christmas and New Year’s food and drink hangover, all while wondering what you’re doing with your life.
Claire Starkie always knew she wanted to go the extra mile to achieve her career goals in logistics but just didn’t know which way to turn. At aged 22 she decided it was time for a change and enrolled on a Transport Manager course at Havering College of Further and Higher Education.
In March of this year, Havering College’s Level 1 Bricklaying student, Frazer Nichols, impressed the judges with his skills and took first place in the North West London Competition. In May, Level 2 bricklayers Daniel Robins and Jordan-Lea Thorn also proved how talented they were when they won second and third places respectively in the Barking & Dagenham Brick Skills Competition. On the basis of the skills they had so clearly demonstrated, it really was a no brainer that they be entered in the Skillbuild Regional Heats. This is a competition that sees the very best in construction talent compete to be crowned the Skillbuild winner. Simply being entered into such a prestigious competition is an accolade in itself.
Within moments of opening, it became very apparent that Curtain Call wasn’t just an average college performance. Perfromed by the Students from Havering College at the Queens Theatre in Hornchurchs, this was a show with all the hallmarks of a West End production, worthy of being performed on stage in any London theatre.
