Reading College makes history

Tue 3 August 2010, 3:15 pm

Further education in Reading has entered a new era under the joint management of Oxford and Cherwell Valley College (OCVC) and the Learning and Skills Network (LSN).
This is the first time a third sector organisation has worked with a college to run a further education institution.

Day-to-day life at the college will remain the same; it will still offer a wide range of full and part time courses and some of the region’s best learning facilities.

And it will still play an important role within the community, working with local people and businesses.

Sally Dicketts, the principal of Reading College said: "Reading College is very much a local college meeting local needs.

"We are committed to working with employers and learners to offer the right, most diverse choice of further education courses for those living in or near Reading.

"We see Reading College becoming both a local and national beacon of excellence in which students, employers, staff and the community can be justly proud."
