New apprentice facility opens at London South Bank University

Nick Harrison, Waterman’s Group Learning and Development Manager, was delighted to attend the official opening of the Passmore Centre for Professional and Technical Education at London South Bank University (LSBU). The event took place on Wednesday 28 November and was attended by around 120 delegates including many employers.

The Centre is a new hub for apprenticeships created in partnership with Southwark Council which aims to deliver thousands of apprenticeships and boost the local economy. It will also provide a space for employers for trading information, recruitment support and relationship management. Not only will this hub be of great benefit to our apprentices but also for the business in general.

Nick commented on the event; “Waterman have been working with LSBU on our London degree apprenticeship provision since 2017. Since then we have built a strong relationship with the University and are very much looking forward to further developing this relationship and utilising this excellent facility. We will also continue to support key local (and aligned) initiatives such as the Southwark Apprenticeship Standard led by Southwark Council, demonstrating our commitment as a key employer and supporter of apprenticeships in the borough”.
