Croydon College sponsored a Constructing Excellence Croydon Club breakfast event at Chef’s Restaurant on 18 November 2021, giving professionals within the construction industry the opportunity to start conversations with College staff on new partnerships to ensure skills needs are met and the right qualifications are provided.
Croydon College Vice Principal Fadia Clarke emphasised to those attending that the College offered a range of vocational courses, specialising in construction and engineering courses. She added that by working collaboratively, the industry could help the College to continue to deliver Careers not Courses.
Nicola Tarry, the College’s Head of World of Work, and Miemie Neethling-Taylor, Head of Higher Education, discussed the existing courses in business, marketing, and finance, as well as developing a curriculum and creating training development programs that meet industry demands. Martin Silverwood, Vice Principal Education and Quality at the Croydon College gave a presentation on the new T Levels – as the College will be facilitating and teaching an Engineering and Construction course, designed with input from industry employers.
Peter Lang, Head of Building, Engineering & Technical at the College, gave a detailed overview of the College’s current courses, classrooms, workshops, and facilities, before leading a tour of the building.
The event was closed with a shared belief that collaboration was key, and that such conversations should take place on a regular basis
