Waltham Forest College Principal sets out three-year plan to build on trajectory of success

Waltham Forest College launches its three-year strategic plan that sets the direction of travel whilst strengthening its unique position as a standalone London college.

The plan sets five key strategic priorities that align its position with the skills priorities of the London Borough of Waltham Forest as well as the London region. Developed with input from the College Board and Executive members and consultation with staff, students and other key stakeholders. This ensures it is the best possible roadmap for the College’s continued journey to success.

Principal, Dr Joy Kettyle, said:

The strategic plan outlines our approach to delivering an expansive and progressive curriculum to meet the needs of growing industries and equip students with the skills that meet the demands of the modern workplace.”

“It outlines the College’s values at its centre, which define our culture and foster a positive working environment. It also positions the College as a key partner in community planning and partnerships, that lead to the improved life chances of our students”.

The College was awarded a Grade 2 ‘Good’ by educational watchdog Ofsted and was recognised for the contribution College staff make to meeting the education and training needs of Waltham Forest as well as its broad range of apprenticeship training.

Dr Kettyle, said:

“Our growth plans are ambitious. Key to this is maintaining high quality and increasing agility so that we respond quickly to opportunities. We want to be future proofed, not just as a financially viable organisation, but one that is able to invest for growth and sustainability.
