Employability Week – Metropolitan Police

South Thames College hosted an Employability Week for our students. A number of employers visited the College and delivered talks and guidance on careers in their sector, routes into employment after study, and the main employability skills they look for in staff.

PC Aneeq Anjum from the London Met Police spoke to our Criminal Law Pathway learners about the different career opportunities within the London Met, he shared his journey and what led him to join the London Met as well as the barriers and success he has faced in his journey. He spoke about Apprenticeships, work experience, how to apply and the wider organisation of the London Met.

Several of our students gave valuable feedback to the sessions. Level 3 Criminal Law Pathway student Keana-Louise Ellis commented: “An amazingly honest review of the Met Police who provided a good understanding on how to get work/placements”.

“Very interactive and everything was explained thoroughly. I enjoyed it.” Matilde Santos, Level 3 Criminal Law Pathway.

Aneeq is now moving on to become a Sergeant in Lambeth and this was probably his last career talk at STC. He has left our students with valuable insights into working at the Met Police.
