I am pleased and proud to welcome you to our 2014/15
Higher Education prospectus and our ever expanding curriculum,
designed for today’s students and tomorrow’s jobs.
What can Havering College offer for the aspiring Higher Education student to ensure that they
have an enjoyable journey to graduation and the best chance to succeed in their future career
or profession?
Quality of Education
Student Support
One in four of our degree passes are first
class honours
Our student support system is highly rated
by 75% of our existing students
"Quality of teaching is of an
extremely high level"
Our lecturers and teachers are highly
qualified and specialists in their chosen
fields, many with extensive work
experience outside the college.
"Passionate commitment of
teaching staff"
Employability
We have close links with hundreds of
employers, large and small, who value the
quality of our students
"Great deal of staff support
for students"
We really do care for our students, with a
vibrant community feel and good facilities,
we ensure that your college experience is
successful and enjoyable
Value and Flexibility
Our charges are no higher than £6,000 for
any of our full-time Higher Education
courses so the same degree can be up to
£17,500 better value than a university
"Learning resources including studios,
software and new media specialist
hardware are excellent"
"Exceptionally strong links with
industry backed by staff expertise"
We enable you to have work based
learning as a core element of your course,
preparing you for your future employment,
as well as the high level of structured,
taught learning that you want in college.
Higher Apprenticeships are part of the
Higher Education curriculum which means
that you can earn while you learn your
professional qualification.
With the benefits of being local, offering flexible and
convenient learning, and the best of your current and
college social lives, I believe that Havering College will
give you not only a fulfilling experience but also great
opportunities in your chosen career or profession.
Come and see what we have to offer.

Getting you
connected
with industry
for the
career of
your choice
When you embark on your journey with
us, we will ensure that you never lose
sight of your end goal – preparing for
your chosen career. A review conducted
by the Quality Assurance Agency for
Higher Education found that Havering
College demonstrates "…impressive
engagement with employers that
ensures continuing relationships that
safeguard, develop and enrich learning
and employment opportunities for
students." (QAA, IQER Summative Review,
June 2010)
Work Based Learning
(WBL)
This applies to courses with a requirement
that a component of the course is based in
the workplace, such as foundation degrees.
Employers are involved in the planning
and overseeing of the WBL activities. This
may involve the workplace as a venue for
a ‘Major Project’ that carries the award of
credits.
Work Placement to
Determine Competence
Career preparation through work based
learning and placements, is a significant
aspect of Higher Education at Havering
College. All of our foundation and honours
degree programmes have elements of
employer engagement within their
curriculum.
Our social work programme works with a
number of local authorities, voluntary and
third sector organisations through
placements, careers fairs and post
qualifying training. We currently work in
partnership with the Salvation Army to
provide a level 6 progression (‘top-up’)
degree in Pastoral Care with Psychology for
qualified and serving officers and the
college has been the Higher Education
training provider of choice for Ford Motor
Company for 25 years.
This will apply where there is a
requirement that a student must be
deemed competent in order to qualify as a
designated ‘professional’, e.g. teaching or
social work programmes. The duration of
such a placement is specified by the
regulatory body, e.g. 150 days or hours,
and the purpose is to provide the
opportunity for a student undertaking a
course of study to demonstrate that they
have the knowledge, competence and
skills related to the profession. Such
placements are mandatory and are
formally sought, approved and monitored
by dedicated college staff.
Arts Mark Gold
In 2012 we received The Arts Mark Gold award from the UK Arts
Council which recognises the investment and quality of teaching
and learning in creative arts at the highest level and reflects the
standard of graduate achievement on a national scale.
These opportunities put you in the workplace whilst you are studying
for your Higher Education qualification; enabling you to put into
practice what you are studying in the college, enhancing the skills
that are essential to career development – communication, team
working and inter-personal skills; and encouraging you to look beyond
your course and to make contact with local and regional employers.

www.havering-college.ac.uk | 01708 462793
Work Placement for
Individual Accreditation
Some professions, e.g. counselling, offer
you the opportunity to become accredited
with a recognised body, such as the British
Association of Counsellors and
Psychotherapists (BACP). To demonstrate
your competence you must personally
accrue a specific number of hours actually
practising. We provide assistance with
finding hours and determine the suitability
of the placement in terms of vocational
relevance and health and safety.
Work Related Activity
We recognise that some disciplines, e.g.
creative and performing arts programmes,
do not readily offer work placement
opportunities. Students studying on these
courses often undertake ‘live projects’
which involve employers and outside
agencies and these contribute to the
overall learning experience. For example,
during 2012 our creative and performing
arts students worked alongside LOCOG
(London Organising Committee for the
Olympic Games), The Olympic Delivery
Authority, The Really Useful Theatre Group
at the London Palladium, and the BBC.
COLLEGE WINS GOLD
Arts Council England has recognised Havering College’s
commitment to, and excellence in, arts education.
“This award recognises Havering College’s
commitment to providing exciting art
experiences and their belief in the
power of creativity.”

London galleries, theatres, museums and
businesses.
London provides countless opportunities
for work experience placements and
exhibitions that allow our students to

connections.

Romford. Both have direct rail links to
London and Essex and boast a large
number of bars and restaurants where
students can relax and socialise after their
studies.
Hornchurch is also home to Hornchurch
Sports Centre and the Queen’s Theatre,
where our creative arts students often
perform.
Romford is a hub of entertainment

centre and Harold Hill Leisure Centre and
can be reached easily by bus or by train
from Essex or London.
It is home to The Jubilee, our professional
training restaurant, open to all students
and staff who appreciate fine food and a
great dining experience.
Rainham Campus
Construction Centre

Learning Resources
Centres
Taught by the Best
Our modern Learning Resources Centres

most of their study time. All students can

items at their fingertips, including books,
periodicals, DVDs and videos. Our open

resources like journals, encyclopaedias and
e-books, all of which can be accessed both
on and off campus.
Highly qualified library staff deliver
tutorials in Referencing, Research Skills and
Online Search Techniques. Our subject
specialist librarians are there to support
you at each level of your programme.
Tutors at Havering College are highly
qualified professionals in their field. They
are dedicated to improving their own
knowledge through the completion of
PhDs and work experience outside the
college. This knowledge is then passed on
to their students in the classroom.
Alumni Association
The many benefits members of the Alumni
Association receive can include regular
newsletters, invitations to academic
lectures and use of the library facilities. It
is our hope that graduates will use the
Alumni Association to maintain links with
Havering College and continue to influence
our growth and development.
Virtual Learning
Environment (VLE)
‘Moodle’, our state-of-the-art VLE, will be
available to you throughout your time at
Havering College. This online resource
holds lecture notes, reading materials,

Royal Charter in 1969 and currently offers
almost 600 courses at undergraduate and
postgraduate level. Over 250,000 people

it the largest academic institution in the UK
by student numbers, and one of the
world's largest universities. Since its
creation, the OU has taught more than 1.6
million students and is consistently one of
the highest ranked UK universities in the
National Student Survey.
OU approval and validation is a stamp of
quality that guarantees the international
currency of your qualification. OU validated

knowledge that employers are looking for,
in an environment that nurtures the
development of individuals.
"Rigorous and transparent
assessment process"
In addition to our work with OU, Havering
College also offers courses validated by the
University of East London. We believe that
this interaction with Higher Education
institutions has given us the breadth of
knowledge we need to provide you with a
high quality experience of Higher Education.
Excellence
Through
Partnership
Havering College offers a diverse
range of foundation degrees,
bachelor degrees and
postgraduate certificates and
diplomas through our partnership
with the Open University.
This is evident in the fact that our lecturers
are now being called upon to sit on the
validating panels of Higher Education
courses awarded by other institutions, such
as Manchester Metropolitan University and
the University of London. Our staff have
also taken on the role of external
examiners on Higher Education
programmes at the University of Derby,
Liverpool John Moores University and
Warwick College.

person and helped me to become a
confident social worker with the passion
and knowledge to enrich people’s lives. I
like that Havering College is much more
informal and smaller than a university. If I
was in a big lecture theatre I would not
have received the specialised attention I
got from the friendly staff at Havering
College."
At our 2012 graduation ceremony
celebrating the success of our students,
Principal Maria Thompson said: "Every
student has achieved something very
special, often juggling their work in the
context of a full-time or part-time job as
well as a busy family life. Our fantastic
staff play an essential part in the success
of our academic environment.
Other graduates included Lisa Vale 31 – a
mother-of-two who gained a Foundation
Degree in Teaching Assistants and is
continuing with her studies at Havering
College to gain a BA (Hons) degree in
Education and Professional Practice.
"In these challenging times
with Higher Education
university tuition fees,
Havering College is
encouraging ambition by
delivering a first rate
Higher Education with
significantly lower fees."
Guest of honour, internationally acclaimed
designer Wayne Hemingway MBE – who
co-founded the Red or Dead designer label
– told the graduates "Many people have
talent but nothing substitutes hard work.
You have a chance to leave the world a
better place."
Kathrine Barlow, 24, from Canning Town,
celebrated her First Class BA (Hons) in
Social Work, She works in supported living
with people who have severe and
enduring mental illness. "Studying for the
course has completely changed me as a

As part of her course Lisa founded an after
school performing arts club and devised a
series of fun maths cards. She said: "I left
school with nothing. I started as a parent
helper at my children’s school. The deputy
head saw I was passionate about teaching
and encouraged me to come on the
course. This is a dream come true and I am
feeling very emotional. Studying at
Havering College is wonderful and
everyone is supportive."
Graduate Samson Onafuye achieved a BA
(Hons) Contemporary Music and
Technology degree, produced his album
“Unleash the Gospel” in the Havering
College recording studios for his final major
project. He is now studying for a master’s
degree at Kingston University.

Jason Potter was one of seven Havering College film students involved in a
commissioned project to produce two commercial-style films for the Olympic Delivery
Authority as a legacy of the creation of the Olympic Park. Their briefs were to
encourage the uptake of apprenticeships in landscaping and horticultural and to attract
more women into the construction industry.
Jason Potter
HND in Creative Media
Production
Jason said: "My ambition is to be a film director and after completing the course at
Havering College, Ravensbourne gave me the option of one or two years of study to get
my degree. Getting to work on the Olympic filming project was a brilliant experience. In
some aspects the facilities at Havering College are better than at university. I especially
miss the dark room which is superb at the college.
"I would recommend Havering College for film and media as the classes are very small
and you get a lot of one-to-one time with your tutors – that is something I have really
appreciated."

Here To
Support You
Havering College is committed to
providing inclusive education.
Higher Education changes lives, it
increases people’s self-confidence
and self-esteem; it opens up new
opportunities educationally,
socially, economically and in
employment.
Havering College recognises that
individuals, groups and communities may
feel excluded from society as a result of
their early disengagement from education.
This exclusion can also be as a result of
previous poor educational opportunities
and/or unidentified learning disabilities
and difficulties prior to their interest in
Higher Education.
The college has a well-developed history
of supporting students from backgrounds
that have traditionally excluded them from
Higher Education. This support is available
from your first contact with the college,
throughout your programme of study and
up to and including your graduation.
This support includes the provision of:
● A study skills module in Higher
Education programmes
● Specialist support for students who have
identified learning disabilities and
needs (or guidance in gaining this
specialist support from external sources)
● Guidance and support through the
process of testing for learning
difficulties and needs, and in any
subsequent application for Disabled
Student Allowance (DSA)
● Non-specific support for students who
require additional support for academic
writing
18
● Specialist English as an academic
language support for students who
have English as their second or other
language (ESOL)
By providing this support, the college sets
out to make our Higher Education provision
accessible and available to those who can
benefit from it and enable students to fulfil
their potential and achieve their
aspirations.
If you think you may have a learning
support need please bring it to the
attention of a member of staff, during
your application process, who will guide
and signpost you to colleagues who can
assist you. For further information about
the Learning Support Service you can
contact a member of the team by calling
01708 455011 extension 2128 or
email [email protected]
Tutorial Support
As a student with us, there are many
opportunities for you to identify areas
where you may need support. Our
academic skills sessions provide the
chance to develop study skills, research
methods and essay writing techniques in
order to make your studies easier. In
addition to this, our small class sizes allow
us to offer individual tutorial sessions,
where you can discuss your progress on
the course and set goals for the future.

apply for a course at Havering College. We
are here to give you information about the
content of the course, how to apply and
how much it will cost. Our friendly advisors
will also tell you about the issues that
affect you, like childcare and access. If we
don’t know the answer to your questions,
we’ll find someone who does.
No-one expects you to know it all. You
might have an idea of what you would like
to achieve but are not sure which course
will get you there. We can explain the
difference between an HNC and a
Foundation Degree or why a Supporting
Teaching and Learning course might suit
you more than an Early Years programme.
It’s not just about brochures and leaflets.
We’ll give you the advice, and space, you
need to make the right choice.
If you choose to apply, Threshold Services
will be with you every step of the way.
We’ll help you with your application
through UCAS, give you information about
your interview, and explain any conditions
of your offer. When you come in to enrol at
the beginning of your course, we will be
there to greet you.
To ensure you get a place, it makes sense
to apply for your course as soon as
possible. However, you can talk to us at
any time of the year, so it’s never too late
to ask how Havering College’s Higher
Education courses can make a difference to
your life.

Full-Time or Part-Time?
Selected courses may be available on a fulltime or part-time basis. Part-time routes
can take twice as long to complete as the
full-time course and require no more than
two days per week of college attendance.
Day-release programmes are available

HNC/HND
Standing for Higher National Certificate,
HNCs are undergraduate qualifications,
which take one year to complete. If you
choose to top this up to a Higher National
Diploma (HND), your qualification may be
considered to be the equivalent to the first
two years of a degree programme.
Higher Nationals are developed in
conjunction with industrial and
professional bodies to ensure that they add
value to preparing you for the world of
work, as well as Higher Education.
Foundation Degrees
These are vocational qualifications aimed
at developing the skills and knowledge
needed for employment in the 21st
century workplace. They are developed
with national employers and organisations
to ensure students gain relevant skills for
their chosen profession.
It is possible to top-up this qualification to
a full degree with a further year’s study at
either Havering College or another
institution.

Charlotte was a full-time waitress
before deciding to embark on a career
in Art and Design.
After completing her studies Charlotte
plans to continue as a practising artist as
well as working in a curatorial capacity.
A BTEC Foundation Diploma in Art and
Design in 2010 equipped Charlotte with
knowledge of a range of disciplines and a
broad spectrum of skills in art and design,
preparing her for Higher Education.
She said: "I appreciate the tuition I am
receiving at Havering College, in particular
the amount of contact time we have with
our tutors due to the structure of the
courses. The facilities have also helped me
in the development of my work. Having
my own studio space has enabled me to
embark upon projects which would
otherwise have been very difficult. It is
very exciting to be involved in the London
arts scene. The support I have received
from staff in my venture is giving me an
insight in how to forge a career in the
arts."
Charlotte is now in the second year of a
BA (Honours) Fine Art degree course at
Havering College and producing
excellent work.
As the manager of Hoxton Garage, she has
set up The Garage Project - gallery space
featuring exhibitions of student work from
Havering College and other institutions. The
gallery has brought her into contact with
other gallery owners as well as artists.
The 27-year-old Hornchurch resident is
actively involved with the Romford
Contemporary Arts Programme (RCAP)
which has been set up by the London
Borough of Havering to showcase and
promote contemporary arts in Romford by
helping artists and curators stage temporary
exhibitions and events in empty shops.

Lawrence-Bullard hailed Joshua as a ‘Damien Hirst of the future’ when he
viewed student artwork at the college’s £6million Centre for Creative Arts.
Joshua, 24, said: “I have loved my time at Havering College and can’t
praise it enough. I wouldn’t be having this success without all the

fine art in a studio environment comparable to any
London college. All students are allocated a working
space where you will carry out your practice. You will also
have access to the specialist studios. This specialist course

Entry Requirements
diploma in art and design, A levels, a National Diploma or
the equivalent. Mature students without traditional
qualifications, but with alternative evidence of suitable
skill and experience will also be given due consideration.
Progression and Career Opportunities
Many fine art students have the ambition to work as
practising artists on the completion of their studies. This is
possible for many, but it is difficult to be financially secure
with this chosen option. Most graduates, who continue to
practice, have to supplement their income with part-time
work. Ideally, this is in a related field such as teacher;
lecturer; journalist; archivist; art therapist or in art
conservation. For others, the qualification enables them to
embark upon careers in the fine art industry. Fine art
courses typically develop specific practical skills along
with much broader transferable skills plus a range of
academic skills. Practical skills may include the use of a
wide range of equipment: from hand tools to computers
and from lathes to video equipment.
All students who apply will be interviewed with a
portfolio inspection. Applicants would normally have a
suitable level 3 qualifications; this could be a foundation
