Lewisham and Southwark Colleges have new Principals at the helm following a double appointment.

As part of the NCG group of colleges, the former Lewisham and Southwark College was split earlier this year in order to provide the best educational offer for the communities they serve.

Peter Lauener, Chair of NCG, said:” The standard of applicants was very high and we were delighted to attract not one but two exceptional candidates.

“Our aim is to offer excellent opportunities for our students and having the right people in key positions is vital to ensure that happens.”

The two new posts have been filled by Asfa Sohail at Lewisham College and Annette Cast at Southwark College.

Asfa will move from Havering College of Further and Higher Education where she was Vice Principal and Annette from the University of East London where she was Pro Vice Chancellor and Dean of the College of Professional Services and Student Experience.

John Litchfield, Chair of the Lewisham and Southwark College Board, said: “I’m really looking forward to working with Asfa and Annette to bring positive change to the two colleges.

“They have both had very successful careers so far and we’re delighted they have decided to continue them with us.”

“They bring with them fresh perspective, lots of great ideas and imagination – and an infectious can-do attitude.”

The new principals will take up their respective roles in the first quarter of 2019.
