South Thames College has been recognised for delivering outstanding courses in cleaning this summer. An award was given to the college by the Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners, which judged training providers on their success rates and retention of students.
Representatives from South Thames College attended a lunch in central London and were given an award of £500. The college has chosen to donate the money to The Sickle Cell Society which will use the money in its educational fund which helps people affected by sickle cell to continue with their education.
Kalpna Patel from the charity said: “We are really grateful to the college for this donation, especially during times when it is difficult to donate to charity. This will help us a lot.”
The college’s director of employment skills, Mary Schramm, said: “South Thames College has been at the forefront of training for the cleaning industry for more than 20 years. A huge percentage of learners come from ethnic minorities which is why we chose this charity.”
