The Deputy Mayor of Planning, Regeneration and Skills Jules Pipe CBE visited Southwark College today as part of Love Our College’s week, a national campaign by the Association of Colleges to promote the good work that colleges do across the country.

Jules toured the campus with Principal, Annette Cast and AoC Director, Mary Vine-Morris, dropping into creative arts classes and looking at rehearsals for an upcoming Shakespeare performance. He also took time out to chat to a large group of students, including representatives from the College’s student union.

Annette said: “We were delighted to host Jules today; he was really keen to see the College at work. This is a fantastic opportunity to highlight the great facilities and raw talent that we have at the College. We are located so close to City Hall, that I hope he pops by again soon.”

Another important aim of the Love Our Colleges Campaign is to lobby government for better investment and fair pay for college staff. Further Education Colleges are an essential part of our communities, they are crucial to driving social mobility and providing the skills to boost local and regional economies.

Jules said: “I thoroughly enjoyed meeting staff and students at Southwark College. The Mayor and I are determined to ensure that we have a skills system that meets the needs of Londoners, so it is always good to meet young people who are passionate about learning and maximising their potential.”
