South Thames College celebrates award winning partnership

South Thames College’s business partner for the cleaning and service industry has received a Medal for Excellence from City and Guilds. Impact 43, which delivers window cleaning training for the sector, has been recognised for its outstanding performance in Level 2 cleaning and support service skills.

Mary Schramm, director of employment skills at the college, said: “South Thames College is the largest and most successful provider of training to the cleaning industry in the country. We are the most well established having worked with the cleaning sector for more than 30 years. We have partnered with Impact 43 for some time and share good practise and benefit from each others expertise. Our success rates are over 95% and we are proud of the continued high standard of training that is being delivered in this area.”

Andrew Willis from Impact 43 will attend the awards ceremony on 15 March 2012 at The Roundhouse in London where he will receive the Medal for Excellence. He said: “I attended South Thames College in the 90s as a student. This training inspired me to make a commitment to training and CPD within my own organisation. I’m really pleased to have been nominated and it represents the whole team behind Impact and recognises what we do.”

In addition to this medal Willis will automatically be shortlisted for City and Guild’s Lion Awards and will also have a chance to win the People’s Choice Award, voted for by the public.
