London South East Colleges have taken a unique step this week by introducing Chinese language and culture to its curriculum and enrichment programme.
Deputy Principal Andrew Slade welcomed Head Teacher of Orpington Chinese Languages School Gigi Chen to Bromley to take part in a partnership agreement signing ceremony.
Greenwich Community College and Bexley College have today formally merged with Bromley College of Further and Higher Education to create London South East Colleges.
The creation of London South East Colleges will secure the future for learners throughout the region. It will provide outstanding education and training opportunities for people of all ages, abilities and interests.
Each college within the group will continue to offer a wide range of qualifications. There will also be increased opportunities for students to progress onto higher level apprenticeships and degree courses.
Former GB, England, Bradford Bulls and Leeds Rhinos rugby star, Jamie Peacock MBE visited London South East Colleges today to give a motivational talk to students beginning their learner journey this September.
Jamie made over 550 first-class appearances in his rugby league career. This included nine Super League titles, four Challenge Cups, four World Club Challenge titles and two World’s Best titles. He came to our Holly Hill Construction Campus during the first week of term to inspire students to set themselves tough but achievable goals and to go that ‘extra mile’ in pursuit of success.
