NCG has today announced that Lewisham Southwark College is to be rebranded as two separate Colleges; Lewisham College and Southwark College.

The rebrand comes into effect on 1 October 2018 and will see both colleges remain a part of NCG.

NCG Chief Executive Joe Docherty said, “This decision will allow the newly established colleges to develop curriculum programmes that better meet the needs of the communities they serve and to work more closely with key stakeholders, including crucially the local authorities of Lewisham and Southwark.

“Two new principals will be appointed to lead the colleges – both charged with the opportunity to make sure the offer better meets the respective local challenges while continuing to collaborate on areas where that makes sense.

“These are incredibly exciting opportunities and in making this move we will better meet NCG’s purpose, to unlock potential through learning.”

The move to create two new colleges has been well received by the local councils. Damien Egan, Mayor of Lewisham, said, “Further education opens up opportunities for so many Lewisham residents of all ages.

“This move will allow the newly-branded Lewisham College to tailor their curriculum to the needs of our borough and we welcome this.”

Cllr Peter John, Leader of Southwark Council, added: “This is welcome news for Southwark residents, who deserve a better and more focused further education offer than we have had in recent years.

“The council has worked with local schools to ensure Southwark children receive a first class education, and we expect the same standard from our further education colleges.

“We look forward to working with the new Southwark College to help our residents reach their potential and have every opportunity to succeed in life.”

It is anticipated that most colleagues will be unaffected by these changes. NCG will of course continue to consult and communicate openly and honestly with any changes that occur as a result of the redevelopment.
