Lewisham College unveiled its new ‘Strategic Plan: Towards 2030’ at a celebration event this week, launching its vision for the future and setting out the College’s priorities and strategic objectives for the next ten years.

The Strategic Plan was launched at the virtual event to an audience of staff, students and stakeholders, including representatives from the College’s employer, community and higher education partners, as well as the Association of Colleges, GLA, Lewisham Council and the Department for Work and Pensions.

Outlining its commitment to working in partnership with organisations in Lewisham, speakers and guests were invited to discuss how the College will achieve its ambitions and use its distinctive position to work collaboratively towards making the greatest difference for learners across London and support the recovery of Lewisham to create an exciting future for all.

Asfa Sohail, Principal at Lewisham College, said: "We are committed to inspiring excellence and supporting curiosity through setting ambitious standards and expectations for the benefit of all our learners and communities.

"Lewisham College has grown its partnerships with businesses, organisations and government resulting in a distinctive and collaborative approach. Our new strategic plan not only pinpoints our ambitions for the next ten years but cements our steps to achieving our objectives and developing significant partnerships to boost the economic success in our local community for us to deliver for our students, our partners and society at large.”

The Lewisham College Strategy is aligned to NCG’s Strategy to 2030. NCG’s mission is to enable social mobility and economic prosperity through exceptional education. This mission sits at the heart of Lewisham College, and it is supported by NCG’s own vision to achieving its objectives.

Lewisham College’s nine strategic objectives are underpinned by key performance indicators adapted to respond to priorities in London, including those that support the recovery and re-calibration in Lewisham following the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Simon Russell, Chair of Governors at Lewisham College, said: “It is a measure of the importance of the College and its prosperity that so many guests joined us to launch our Strategic Plan. Achieving our objectives is a whole community effort. There will be significant challenges in light of the pandemic, but this will propel us all forward in the vital role we all have in making sure this is a success and that we support our learners as they navigate through the road ahead.”

During the event, attendees had the opportunity to share their views and feedback and discuss how all stakeholders can work together to meet the strategic objectives set out in the plan by 2030. To give your feedback, visit the Lewisham College Strategic Plan Padlet.
