A record number of students celebrated their first week at Havering College with a whole host of Freshers activities. 

Created to welcome new students to the campus, Freshers Week was fun, informative and free. There was a whole host of activates for students to get involved with including a bungee run, human table football, Batak Pro and more, not to mention an array of Freebies including Ice-cream!

Student services, along with representatives from local organisations provided advice on health, welfare and finance. Local companies offered Freshers the chance to learn about their superb student discounts, even Havering College’s catering department got involved with their guess the vegetable to win a week’s free food!

It was a highly interactive and informative week that gave the Freshers a supportive welcome to the college. 

After a summer of fun, students across the borough have been heading in their hundreds to enrol at Havering College.

This week, Havering College has been a hive of activity as students registered to start their exciting educational journey this Autumn. Although enrolment can be a rather long process, Havering College made it as pleasurable as possible by offering free refreshments, free ice-cream and free entertainment.

It really has been a great week and the staff involved worked very hard to ensure that all students were ready to start.

Now all the paperwork is finished, it’s now time for some fun and that is exactly what Freshers Week promises to provide. From next Monday, Havering College will be offering Freshers the chance to explore their campus, meet the staff, discover all the student services available and have lots of fun. There will be giant inflatable games including a fun bungee run along with food tasting, give-aways, competitions and MORE

If you’re still wanting to study this term, it’s not too late to enrol. Find out more at the Ardleigh Green campus open event on Saturday 10 – 4 pm. To register click here

Havering College and the award winning Cross Over Project are proud to present their brand new musical production “Class”.

Set in the present day, Class tells the story of a boy and girl from two very different sides of the social spectrum. It explores both their worlds while at school, revealing just how differently society treats them and how they perceive themselves. It’s an emotional story with a lighthearted feel and is set to be a musical hit at Her Majesty’s Theatre London on the 7th of May 2017.

If you’re interested in being part of this exciting production, auditions will be happening in September. Auditions are open to all students aged 6-60. You will be required to prepare a short song and read from the script on the day.

To book your audition call Peter Dayson on 01708 462 740

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

It’s been an exciting morning at Havering College as today was the day students received their GCSE results. This summer, the results were a mix of GCSE English Language and maths. Some students were taking their exams for the first time, others were re-sitting their exams to get a place on their chosen course. The atmosphere was a mix of anticipation and excitement as students opened their envelopes.

Just before Sarah Hill, a 42 year old Care Worker opened her results, she told us

“I’m trembling, I am so nervous, I have really worked hard”

Sarah needed to achieve grade C or above in maths to start her Access course in Midwifery. It was an anxious moment for her but was worth the wait.

“I can’t believe it, I’ve got an A, I haven’t studied in 25 years and have managed to get an A in maths. This means I can start my Access course in September”

This was a result she hasn’t been expecting and one that meant she would be able to start her new course in September. Sarah is looking forward to her brighter future and encourages anyone looking at learning something new, to see what Havering College has to offer.

Pearl Fernandez, one of last year’s Level 3 Graphic Design students was relieved to have achieved an A* in her GCSE maths after studying hard since moving to the UK three years ago.

“I’m so happy…it’s such a relief’

Pearl completed a week’s work experience with Members Only Clothing Company in Rainham whilst studying at the college. The company liked Pearl so much they have invited her back to complete a second week of work experience with a view to taking her on as a paid intern in the future.

This has been such a positive year for learners taking their GCSEs. Both learners and staff have worked extremely hard and this is apparent by the overall results.

Havering College of Further & Higher Education is open to give support and guidance at results time should you need to discuss your options.

Should you want to enrol on a new or different course, there is still time. Find out more at the Ardleigh Green Campus Open Event, Saturday the 3rd of September, 10 – 4 pm. You’ll be able to take a tour of the campus, see the college facilities and talk to the tutors about the courses you’re interested in.
