Redbridge College of Further Education is based in the London Borough of Redbridge. It is vocationally based, offering an exciting range of courses to 3000 students, across two sites – the Chadwell Heath campus and the Ilford Skills Academy, in Ilford town centre. The college has recently opened its Apprenticeship Services Academy and Sport courses will be working in partnership with the University of East London Sports Dock.
The college’s mission statement is ‘To inspire, develop and provide the opportunity for all Redbridge College students and staff to succeed’ and it is taking steps to ensure the continued improvement of learning and student success. One example of this, is the English and Maths Campaign, which is a promotional measure to raise awareness of the importance of English and Maths amongst students and ways they can improve.
Fantastic new facilities are now under development at the Chadwell Heath Campus, with crews working quickly to build a 250-seat theatre for use by performing arts students, as well as college and community events. There will be a stunning new courtyard and reception area and classrooms built for hi-tech learning to truly make Redbridge College a state-of-the-art educational destination. All this is due for completion by September 2015.
The Urban Oasis salon located on the Ilford Campus will be open for business for the first time In September 2014 . Urban Oasis will offer fabulous hair and beauty treatments in brand-new facilities at competitive rates. This commercial salon is connected to the training salons at the Ilford Skills Academy of Redbridge College, giving students unparalleled access to a working salon and the preparation necessary to succeed in their careers, including the possibility to work in the salon after graduation as a fully-qualified, independent practitioner.
