After a tough final year, our higher education and access students gathered together for our graduation ceremony on Thursday 4 July.

After a drinks reception on the 6th floor roof gardens of our lovely Southwark building, graduates and their families and friends, gathered in the atrium for the formal ceremony. After speeches from College Principal Annette Cast, Professor Carrie Weston and Professor Julia Davidson, the certificate presentation began.

Students were each presented to Annette to receive their awards, posing for photos and enjoying the applause. The ceremony was a true celebration of a huge amount of effort over the last few years, and also the support received from tutors, families and friends.

Annette Cast said: "The growth and progress of higher education at the College - has been real in recent years, we provide the kind of environment that our students thrive in. Small groups, a high student to staff ratios and lower fees than universities. This building provides a feeling of space and purpose and I think you will agree, is extremely well suited for higher education study.

"Whatever you do next, I hope you remember us, we will welcome you back to talk to other students about your success story, or just to catch up with your favourite members of staff. You are now part of the Southwark College family."

Thursday 20 June saw the pinnacle of a year’s work for Art, Media and Fashion students at Southwark College.

This annual event showcases the work of creative students who all play a role in organising the event, producing the work for display, as well as promoting and servicing the opening night and the subsequent exhibition.

The College was delighted to host VIPs: Jonathan Suffolk, who is the Technical Director of The National Theatre, Yomi Ayeni, Founder of Tone Def Records and Yinka Danmole, the Design Director of Studio Danmole.

Natalie Garner, Head of Department for Creative studies says: “I am so very proud of the students who put such professionalism and creative zest into the event.

"I would also like to thank the passionate and talented staff who have taught our students, as well as their parents and families. Our students are destined for incredibly bright futures, judging by the standard of work they are producing now.”

Southwark College is building a great reputation for creative studies at their base in The Cut, SE1. Students can take advantage of amazing purpose-built facilities, and be taught by lecturers who have worked in the industry and have a wealth of experience to share with them.

Light Sower, one of the creative art students says: "Nothing is too much to ask, my tutor always goes above and beyond for her students. She is so knowledgeable and has real experience of the industry that she can share with us”

The free exhibition will stay in place until 8 July open daily from 9-3pm.

Dr Adebisi Adewole – who taught business at the College a number of years ago is an expert in African economics – returned to Southwark College to launch his first book on 1 March.

Dr Adewole’s book, ‘Logistics and Global Value Chains in Africa’, will be unveiled at a special event which will welcome business leaders and academics as well as staff and students from the College who are interested in this field.

Now a lecturer at the University of West of Scotland, Dr Adewole has become a leading authority on the way economies work in Africa, with expertise in procurement, logistics and supply chain management, ethical business and corporate social responsibility. 

He completed his PhD doctoral research at the University of the Arts London in Supply Chain Relationships in the 2003, after which he moved to London Metropolitan University as Senior Lecturer (Associate professor) where he taught for twelve years before he progressed to the University of the West of Scotland (UWS) in 2014. He is on record as the first African PhD scholar in Supply Chains Management.
He is currently the Deputy Director for Centre for African Research on Enterprise and Economic Development (CAREED) at his current University. Professor Adewole has published widely in his field and contributed at many international conferences.

His new book provides a comprehensive explanation of the relevance of logistics and global value chain (GVC) to trade on the African continent, and aims to help define an approach that will bring about much-needed fair and competitive trade deals for Africa.

The book launch will took place on 1 March at Southwark College, and was organised by the UK Africa Professional Educators’ Seminar, an organisation which supports teacher development in Africa. 

You can buy the book from Amazon or Palgrave
