Flexible Learning – Realise your Potential

Bridging the gap with Flexible Learning

Flexible learning for Maths and English is coming to Kensington and Chelsea College!

Whether you are at home or at work, you can attend a class at a time that suits you near where you live. You can also study in one of our flexible learning hubs at our Wornington Road Centre and at The Curve.

How does it work?

Through partnership with local organisations, we have created a way that you can study from any location – as long as you have internet access! As a result of this, you will only be one click away from interacting with your tutor.

Additionally, these functional courses will be supported by:

  • Amazon Alexa – Echo Dots
  • Google Classroom App
  • Face-to-face learning

Progression

Also, if you pass our Maths and English courses at Level 2, we can fast track you to a GCSE course or recommend you for other courses of your choice!

Special thanks to our partners for their continued support!

Interior Design students score with Chelsea FC

interior design students work with chelsea fc as part of museum redevelopment 

Interior Design students have been working with Chelsea Football Club on their final projects that focused on the Museum’s redevelopment. 

The ideas will help the redevelopment of Chelsea Football Club’s museum that is opening in September.

Over the past six weeks, students from Interior Design have presented their projects and ideas to Chelsea Football Club.

Level 3 Interior Design students worked with the design consultancy Designwerk on the project. The project focused on one of the rooms in the museum: ‘The Foundation Room’.

‘The Foundation Room’ focuses on the local community. Therefore our students’ ideas focused on engaging visitors with the club’s history, charitable work and the club’s future.

The brief stated that the room should use other elements to engage all ages rather than being technology-led.

Ideas included an area where visitors could share their stories, which included engaging graphics and creative displays concepts.

The students attended an initial briefing at Stamford Bridge and afterwards they started to work on their ideas. Their ideas where then presented to Designwerk.

The final project presentation was held at Chelsea Football Club on Wednesday 13 June.

Saha Saif and Connor Crawford from Designwerk, said: 

“It was good to see the students thinking like designers as they are using the same design processes that we use in the workplace.”

Student gains work experience at design company through project

As a result of the project, Level 3 student, Saffron Lord, won a three-month design internship with Designwerk.

Saffron said:I am excited to work with DesignWerk more. I am looking forward to see what new doors open for me. It is an incredible opportunity to be offered an internship with DesignWerk. Furthermore, this internship will really give me a truly valuable experience within the design industry.”

Alya Rizvi, who is the Curriculum Manager of Design and Multimedia, said: “All our Interior Design and Architecture courses prepare students for higher education and design employment. It is brilliant that not only do our students get into top design universities each year, but our students also gain work placements at top design companies too.”

In addition, the museum will be opening at Chelsea Football Club’s Stamford Bridge site on 1st September 2018.

Glass students celebrate awards success

Glassmaking students from Kensington and Chelsea College have had their work selected for the ‘Inspired by the V&A’ Competition.

Three students from the BTEC Certificate in Art and Design Level 3 – Glass, taught at the Kensington site, have been chosen for their outstanding work in glass: Yanna Neame with “In the Light of Fire”; Caroline O’Connor for “Starburst” (pictured), a skilfully articulated stacked fused glass piece; and Janine Greenberg with “Love, Light and Strength”. 

Janine’s piece has been confirmed as the winner of the Glass and Stained Glass category. Yanna, Caroline and Janine’s work will be exhibited from 11-26 May at the Morley Gallery.

Yanna commented: “Glass is a very special material and I fell in love with it instantly during a short course. Kensington and Chelsea College offered me the opportunity to explore it further through a structured, in-depth course, BTEC level 2 & 3 in Glass. The College offers a great atmosphere, and you are encouraged to explore and fully enjoy your chosen medium.  The teaching is excellent and the facilities are great. I have learned many techniques and my continuous experimentation has happily led to my work being selected for the V&A exhibition. I am very excited for the times ahead and I am looking forward to more playing and producing some more fun work!”

Note to editors: Inspired by V&A is a national art competition for those studying adult education that asks entrants to draw on the renowned V&A collections for inspiration to create new work.
