A Warm Welcome
Welcome to Newham College, a true community college dedicated to supporting and developing local people, regardless of their academic starting points.
Our mission is to give local people choices and access to the best vocational education available in London. By vocational, we mean learning that prepares people for lucrative careers.
Let me make it clear: Newham College is the leading and most successful vocational education college in London. Here’s the proof:
- Recognised by the Department for Education as the highest performing large FE College for the past 5 years.
- Awarded the first kitemark in the country by Ofsted for partnering with businesses to create a clear path from study to work.
- Chosen by the government and the Mayor of London to deliver their key skills priorities through initiatives like the London City Institute of Technology at Canning Town, Mayoral Sector Skills Academies, and the Health Futures partnership with Barts NHS Trust at Stratford.
- Received over £50m in funding from the government and the Mayor of London to create state-of-the-art student facilities.
More important than our success statistics is the experience our students have during their time with us. Our students express:
- Respect and development of their ambitions and aspirations by dedicated and inspiring teachers.
- A safe and nurturing environment.
- The ability to combine study with high-impact enrichment activities such as clubs, trips, and sports.
These experiences give our students confidence in three key areas:
- Our teachers’ unwavering commitment to them, without any conditions.
- No disruption to their learning due to staff strike action, unlike many other colleges in London.
- Our strong connections to London’s businesses, which provide students with numerous opportunities, including work experience, mentoring, advice, and pathways to good jobs.
At Newham College, if you attend and work hard, we will support you more than any other college in your journey to success and progress. Joining us will be a decision you won’t regret.
We are quickly becoming the number one choice for vocational education in east London, with 600 more school leavers and 1000 more adults choosing to build their skills with us this year.
We would be honoured to support you in achieving your full potential and succeeding in today’s competitive world. By choosing Newham College, you’ll benefit from excellent teaching, industry-standard facilities, access to a wide network of business contacts and opportunities, and our unwavering commitment to help you reach your goals.
