About us

Lewisham Southwark College is a further education college, with three campuses across south east London with easy access from the tube/DLR, buses and trains. We passionately believe in encouraging talent in a friendly and supportive environment and deliver a range of exciting, vocational courses. The College welcomes teenage and adult learners – creating employable graduates with relevant work skills.

Our teaching staff are here to help strengthen your practical, technical and professional know-how and your time with us will probably be very different to school. You'll be treated as an adult and a number of our lecturers have been within industry themselves, meaning you can learn from their expert knowledge.

We want to create inspired, knowledgeable and award-winning students. And we'll strive to equip you with fundamental and hands-on expertise in a subject you're passionate about, so you're ready to take that next step.

Having successfully completed your qualification on a sufficient level, you should leave us with a well-rounded and applied understanding of your specialism, which is just what employers are looking for. You can potentially go on to higher education after Level 3 courses, too. We deliver HND and Access options, helping boost your prospects for some of the top universities.

Our Values

Our values are not just about what we do, but also about how we do things. Over 2,000 colleagues and 400 customers and learners have worked together to help define our values as an organisation – the values which drive our behaviours and effectively place how we work with each other as our defining characteristic.

Values underpin the culture and beliefs of our organisation and foster a sense of pride in working for NCG. Our values set the standard of how we should behave towards our colleagues and give us the opportunity to make the right decisions based on the values we all share.

Valuing our people - It all starts with our people

Taking ownership - Being responsible for what we do

Being open and honest - The truth builds trust and respect

With a nationwide network of colleges and training centre's and around 2,500 staff, we work with thousands of learners and businesses every year, regionally and nationally, to help them reach their full potential and build a talented workforce through high quality education and training.
