Green Light For college Annexe 3
Havering Technical College have been given a vote of confidence by a Havering Council working party. And a £156,000 extension plan has been recommended.

The Policy Committee have accepted the working party’s report, and will recommend that work should start on the extension in the spring of 1970.

The extension had been approved by the department of Education and science. And was on the department’s building programme for 1969/70.

But the policy committee were not satisfied that it was necessary.

They called for a report on this and other aspects of the College’s work, and a six-man investigation team was appointed. Team was appointed.

Their conclusions amount to approval of virtually every facet of the college.

The report adds: “We appreciate that by starting the contract in the spring of 1970, a rise in building costs will have to be faced”.

Among the conclusions in the 11-page report are:

  • The college compares very favourably with similar establishments in size of classes.
  • Average attendances in classes, departments and course are high.
  • There is no unnecessary dup-overlap between their function and that of the secondary schools.
  • There is no satisfactory alternative on practical, education or financial grounds to the major extension scheme.

The policy committee are also recommending that the college continue the existing practice of running courses mainly at the craft and technical level.

The working party consisted of four Tories – Ald. Sidney Legg, ex-Cllr. Mr. Bob Blythe, Cllr. John Higgs and Cllr. Edward Hoad - Ratepayer Cllr. Albert Davis and Labour Cllr. David Burn.
