Service Description

Tower Hamlets College is based in east London. We have two campuses within the borough of Tower Hamlets, with the main one based at Poplar, close to Canary Wharf and another at Arbour Square, Stepney, close to the City of London. We are recognised as a good college by Ofsted, for the quality of our educational provision and wide progression opportunities for our students.

On 1 August 2016, the college merged with Hackney Community College. Both colleges will retain their local identities and campuses in both boroughs.

With sites based minutes away from the leading business and financial areas of Canary Wharf and the City of London, we are never more than three minutes from a DLR or bus stop and ten minutes from the Jubilee Line.

We provide education and training to young people aged from 14-18 years and to adult learners. This includes a large offering of 50+ courses at A-Levels to vocational in a range of subjects including business, IT, social sciences, maths and science, health and social care, trade skills and catering, as well as pre-university entry courses such as Access to Higher Education and Higher National Certificates.

We have strong business links with a number of leading of companies in Canary Wharf and the City of London.

We also offer employer and employee training, including apprenticeships. In addition, you can receive independent advice and guidance from one of our fully trained employment, education, training and careers advisers.

They you need to study for a Higher National Certificate (HNC) qualification. HNCs are valuable and respected qualifications that can help your career progression and, if you choose, help you to enter a university degree at the second year.*

You could even save a significant amount of money on the costs of university study, dependent on whether you study an HNC.** Well worth thinking about!

All of our HNC courses are taught at the Poplar Campus, just two minutes from the financial and business district of Canary Wharf and easily reached by DLR or Jubilee line.
