The event brought together around 100 adult and young learners, who have undertaken courses in a variety of subjects including Maths, English, IT and retail, with a view to improving their skills and long term employability.
Special guest, the Mayor of Lambeth Councillor Clive Bennett, was in attendance to give out certificates of training and achievement to learners.
Andrew Conlan-Trant, head of TBG Learning, said the celebration represented a key milestone for some of the individuals, many of whom come from disadvantaged backgrounds.
“It’s important that we recognise the success of our young and adult learners, as they work towards gaining employment, or progressing within further education.
“Everything we do at TBG Learning leans towards getting a job for our customers – helping them to progress into long-term, sustainable employment. These celebrations play an important part in this process as they recognise individuals who are keen to undertake learning as part of their personal development.
“There’s a fantastic buzz in the room and a real sense of pride and achievement. These awards are a positive step towards a better, more fulfilled future for these learners and each one should feel proud of what they’ve achieved.”
Mayor Cllr Clive Bennett added: “I am always pleased to support the aspirations of funded agencies working with young people in Lambeth. Helping learners achieve through qualifications is a worthy goal for TBG Learning with the next step being to see their employment prospects realised with similar success.”
I’m very happy today to get this certificate. When I first came to TBG Learning I couldn’t speak hardly any English and now I can.
My children are in school and learning English too, before I couldn’t help them with their homework but now I can. The teacher helped me a lot and really guided me, I could always go to her for help and she would guide me.
