Disun Majekodunmi - Business lecturer and curriculum development
I have worked as a project manager in industry for 10 years and taught at a number of London College's, my industry experience has enabled me to develop the curriculum to bring business ideas into the classroom, making the learning experience of students interesting and full. I love teaching and am grateful that I have been given the opportunity to teach in a way that enables me to see students really benefit from their education.

Computing is very popular, and we have lots of eager students on our courses. Newham is a very friendly and welcoming environment, students are relaxed and enthusiastic, and that makes the whole learning process a pleasure for everyone including me! Most of my students go on to University and our Student Learning Advisors are really good at helping them move on.

Newham has a wonderfully enthusiastic and positive atmosphere that's all too rare these days - it's an environment that's truly condusive to teaching and the students are very eager to learn. We're also very well resourced here, which makes it easier to teach in a way that's stimulating and meaningful. I love my subject and teaching it here is a pleasure.
Nikki Akintade - Hairdressing Tutor
I've been in the hairdressing business for many years now and it's a pleasure to be able to pass on everything I have learned. Newham is a great place to do this because they have a wealth of resources and facilities. Hairdressing is moving on all the time and there's always something new and exciting happening - here we are in a progressive environment where you can really innovate and try new things.
Mike Scott - Engineering & Construction Tutor
I'm really proud of the fact that for 15 years Newham College has given me the opportunity to be educating the engineers of tomorrow. I was involved with the team that successfully bid for CoVE status on the work we do with the railway industry - this is a great achievement and it has enabled us to invest in Work Based Learning Centres within the railway companies. It has also enabled us to set up a fantastic Signals Simulation Workshop.
Michael Kwaitoo - Health and Social Care Tutor
I joined the department from the Metropolitan Police. I was very impressed at the quality and range of facilities at Newham College. The Foundation Course is a great platform - it alows students to figure out what kind of career they want and gives them a real opportunity to find out what areas of Health and Social Care they enjoy the most.
