Our Mission Statement

"London College of Business Sciences will meet learner aspirations through excellence in education and training"

The College has, strategically, taken an inclusive approach to work of engaging with individuals and groups of individuals with protected characteristics (as defined by the Equality Act 2010). As the provider of education and training in Dockland, delivering from level 3 to level 7, we have implemented a differentiated approach to the support needs of our further education and higher education students. One very important aspect of the work of the College is to stimulate and support progression at all levels.

The College HE strategy is focused upon the development and delivery of high quality, vocationally relevant programmes to support internal progression, widen participation and to meet any external demand. There are four key priorities within this strategy.

  • 1. Provision for internal progression
  • 2. Focus on local and regional priorities
  • 3. Employability and skills development
  • 4. Creating a high quality, differentiated HE experience for students

Recruitment.

Recruitment to HE programmes at the College is supported by a number of strands of activity which are designed to widen participation.
  • Programmes are designed to facilitate flexible delivery. This enables those in work to attend on a part time basis for 1 day per week. Full time delivery is also planned so as to cluster activities so students are not required to attend across a number of days. This again means that students are able to work and therefore maintain an income
  • The college offers a range of access to Higher Education to support those who are returning to education and need knowledge and skills to facilitate study at a higher level
  • Induction sessions are offered to applicants throughout the year so that they get the opportunity to attend the college in advance of enrolment and discuss any potential concerns or support needs. Applicants are also able to experience the welcoming environment and small class sizes
  • The College support staff introduce the concept of Higher Education during induction activities for all ages
The entry criteria for all higher education programmes at the college include ‘non-standard’ options so as to encourage applications from those who have not followed a standard route and may not have UCAS tariff points.
