Introduction to New City College
New City College (NCC) is the fourth largest further education college in England. It has been formed through five mergers: the merger between Tower Hamlets College and Hackney Community College in August 2016 and subsequent mergers with Redbridge College in April 2017, Epping Forest College in August 2018 and the mergers with Havering College of Further and Higher Education and Havering Sixth Form College in August 2019.
NCC currently has over 25,000 students with a small provision of 14-15 education, a large cohort of 16-18 students and a significant number of adult students. It offers over a 100 courses from A Levels, BTECs and ESOL to vocational subjects, such as business, IT, performing arts, trade skills and catering as well as pre-University courses. Throughout its intensive period of growth, NCC has maintained a focus on students and teaching and learning.
NCC is based in east London and has 10 sites in five local authorities: Tower Hamlets, Hackney, Redbridge, Epping Forest and Havering. The College continues to maintain its strong local presence, serving the needs of its local communities.
Join an ambitious and exciting redevelopment project
The College has an ambitious plan to redevelop its campus in Poplar. Located on Poplar High Street, right next to Poplar DLR station and within 200m of Canary Wharf and Crossrail, the current campus is formed of an amalgam of buildings from different areas. The oldest part is a 1894 Poplar library building and the campus also includes a grade II listed Naval College from 1906. Newer parts of the building are from 1990s and 2006. The current building is inefficient and it is no longer future proofed to accommodate education and training provision for decades to come.
As such, the College is looking to redevelop the new campus into a state-of-the-art education facility which provides a flexible learning environment, is aligned with industry requirements, is green, accessible and sustainable and celebrates the heritage of the local area and the Naval College. The new campus will be funded through an enabling development, built on the same site as the new campus. There is also an opportunity to enhance the public realm around the new development, including invigorating Poplar High Street.
As part of the early planning for the redevelopment, NCC has worked with fundraising consultancy More Partnership to assess the overall potential to seek philanthropic support for aspects of the redevelopment, including specific subject areas and student groups. From this, it is clear that there is considerable scope to engage Trusts and Foundations with the project and that resulting impact NCC has on the lives of young people in this part of London.
As a result, NCC now wishes to appoint a Trusts and Foundations Manager to lead this work, and in so doing, to put in place a long-term and sustainable grant-focused fundraising programme.
