In its 13th year, the National Apprenticeship Award is a highly respected and prestigious award, for which a nomination alone is a great accomplishment.  Jodeci, who is on a two year Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools intermediate apprenticeship, was so nominated and has now progressed to the award shortlist. 

Jodeci works 4 days a week in an Infant School which allows him to gain on the job experience, he then returns back to Havering College 1 day a week for formal training towards a recognised qualification. The National Apprenticeship Awards are given to apprentices who have made a real difference to their organisation and careers and that is exactly what Jodeci does on a daily basis. 

He is an apprentice with a great deal to offer and has been recognised for his contribution to his workplace along with his commitment and potential.

The National Apprenticeship Awards 2016 have now closed for entries, and the judging process has begun. Regional judging panels took place over the summer and the winners and highly commended entries from all 10 areas will be recognised at one of six celebration events to be held across the country in autumn

We will also be running competitions to win great prizes, giving away loads of fun freebies and providing you with all the information you need to know about being a Havering College Student.


Opening its doors today in the heart of their Ardeleigh Green Campus, Starbucks is set to become the social hub of Havering.

After its long anticipated arrival, Starbucks located in what used to be the campus shop, is up and running . This new franchise will offer an authentic menu of freshly brewed coffees, teas and specialty beverages along with a delicious selection of pastries, biscuits and sandwiches .

A spokes person for the college had this to say:

"I am so pleased to announce that the long awaited opening of the Café at the Square is finally here. This will mean both staff and students won’t have to leave the campus for a real coffee but can enjoy it here, saving time whilst savouring Starbucks' delights"

Claire Starkie Transport Manager of a Tesco Regional Distribution Centre (RDC)Claire Starkie always knew she wanted to go the extra mile to achieve her career goals in logistics but just didn’t know which way to turn. At aged 22 she decided it was time for a change and enrolled on a Transport Manager course at Havering College of Further and Higher Education. 

The 12 week Transport Manager CPC Course, taught by Justin Rowley, a Curriculum Manager of Transport and Logistics was exactly what she needed to get ahead. It taught her all she needed to know about logistics and gave her the management skills to lead a team.

"The training I received at Havering was vital to my career progression. Without it, I would never have been anything more than a supervisor. I really enjoyed the course, it was taught by friendly relaxed lectures and covered everything I could ever want to know about Transport Management."

After finishing the course and returning back to Tesco, it wasn’t long until Claire was offered the role of Transport Manager of a very large Tesco regional distribution centre (RDC).

Student Winner

To celebrate the start of the new educational year, Havering College ran a competition to win an Amazon Fire HD 6 Tablet. The competition was open to all Freshers, all they had to do was use #HCFreshers, and tell us what course they were studying. There was no catch and no cost. 

The winner, chosen at random was Hannah-Brogan Hardy, a new student starting the Graphic Design Extended Level 3 Course in September. Hannah-Brogan never expected to win and was very happy that her tweet was chosen.

“I can’t believe out of everyone I won the Fire Tablet. This is going to be really useful to use on my course as I will be able to install apps like 2D Design on it. Thank you Havering College, this is a great prize”.

The #HCFreshers is just one of the many competitions Havering College will be running this term. For your chance to win great prizes, make sure you follow us on Twitter @HaveringCollege.
