Sponsorship for Qualifications

Why provide sponsorship for qualifications?


The investment in employees through learning, training and development is recognised by Southwark as a major contributor in the drive towards building a high quality, efficient and effective organisation. Sponsorship for qualifications is a key element in enabling the council to develop our employees to their full potential.


Our objectives

  • To support the council's workforce development plan, in the provision of a structured long-term approach to learning, retention and development of skills;
  • To provide an opportunity for all employees to develop their academic skills and obtain professional recognition;
  • To promote career progression opportunities;
  • To assist in the organisation's equality initiatives, by providing positive development opportunities in areas of under representation.

Sponsorship application and guidelines
