Introducing Newham College
In this section of the site, as well as the Welcome from Di Gowland Principal and Chief Executive, you will find information about Newham College of Further Education's commitment to creating an inspiring atmosphere for the College community to flourish.
You can read what our students say, explaining why they chose Newham College. We also have a number of Awards and Certifications including quality standards and Investors in People and have also acheived The Matrix Gold Standard, acknowledging our expertise and achievement in several areas.
The College has been a recognised Investor In People employer for over 7 years. This is a national standard established and promoted by the government to encourage better development and use of human resources with the ultimate aim of making businesses and public services more effective.
The ISO 9001:2000 is a quality standard, which recognises an organisation for being customer focused, able to deliver to both its own standards and those of its customers. It also means that we continually raise our own standards and the standards that we expect of those who work for and with us.
Neil Hannah, Managing Director of the British Standards Institute, who conducted the audits assessing the standards at the College said, "I think what you do here as a college is so important, the quality of education is important to the learner and a nation as a whole. This award is not easy to win, it's not meant to be, the only way you can get one is to understand what your customers needs are and then have the processes readily available to facilitate that need".
