A merger between Lambeth College and London South Bank University (LSBU) has been described as "a pioneering partnership" by the executive principal of the college, which will break down educational barriers.
The college joined the LSBU “family” of education institutions earlier this year, which will help students to access a greater amount of courses, and increase links with potential employers.
Lambeth College provides a range of courses and apprenticeships aimed at providing skills to enter the job market, while LSBU is well-known for its technical education courses.
Fiona Morey, executive principal of Lambeth College, said: “Our pioneering partnership with LSBU supports our vision of being at the heart of lifelong learning in south London. We are proud to be part of a collaboration that values education and is passionate about supporting our students and employers to realise their ambitions.”
Professor David Phoenix, vice chancellor of London South Bank University, said: “Our educational offer, coupled with our combined business links and enterprise expertise will create a new model for education delivery and enable us to make a real difference to local people.”
Councillor Mohammed Seedat, Lambeth Council’s cabinet member for the voluntary sector, partnerships and community safety, said: “Lambeth College teaming up with London South Bank University is fantastic news for young people, as it promises to improve the educational opportunities and the guidance they’ll need to go on to have successful careers.
“This will play a key role in improving equality in Lambeth, and breaking down the barriers preventing so many young people from fulfilling their potential.”
