About Us - Welcome

Dear colleague,

Thank you for expressing an interest in Newham College London. We are proud to be an inclusive, aspirational community college, based in East London. Newham has 3 main campuses; East Ham, Stratford and the Institute of Technology, based at London City Island, and a number of community learning venues across the borough.

We have over 2,000 young learners and around 6,000 adult learners, making the college a vibrant, busy and exciting organisation. Over the past few years, we have invested over £50m of capital expenditure to modernise our estate and update our resources.

We are in an exciting phase of the college’s development, with new programmes, new buildings and an increase in learner numbers, making the college a great place to work and study.

Our staff are overwhelmingly positive about Newham - we value and invest in our staff. We have created a culture of high aspiration, high support and high achievement. We are consistently one of the highest achieving colleges in London. Recently graded ‘Good’ by Ofsted, Newham was the first college in the country to receive a strong contribution for its skills contributions, something we are very proud of.

We are now looking for a forward thinking, skilled, collegiate Director of Study Programmes. The postholder will have the strategic and operational responsibility for study programmes at the college including the strategic lead for T Levels. We want our candidates to be as ambitious, excited and aspirational as we are.

Our 16-18 provision is a key strategic growth area for Newham. We are looking for an experienced practitioner, a good communicator and, above all, someone who aspires to bring more success for our students and our college.
