Welcome to Morley College London. Happy New Year! To our new students I am delighted you have decided to join us and would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you on joining our learning community. To returning students a warm welcome back to Morley College London for the new term.
Your Student Handbook is an essential source of information, available for download from College’s online learning environment, Moodle. The College prides itself on being responsive to the views, ideas and concerns of students, and as set out in the Handbook, there are many ways in which the College listens and responds to the needs of students. Please do share any feedback on your experiences at Morley with your class representative and through completion of surveys and questionnaires.
As a learning community we’re committed to maintaining a safe environment for all. Your tutor will share with you a short introductory film at the start of your course which provides vital information about our collective commitment to Safeguarding and the Prevent Duty. The film is available via Moodle for you to view at any time.
I’m excited about the learning opportunities here at Morley, and I’ve every confidence you’ll find your course both stimulating and rewarding. Successful achievement of a course is always a moment of great personal satisfaction, and I hope you will feel entirely encouraged to progress your learning. Please don’t hesitate to ask your tutor for any guidance on your ideal next course.
I hope you’ll take the time to enjoy the distinctive cultural life of Morley, and join us for exhibitions of visual art, performances of music and theatre, public lectures and a wide range of creative events held throughout the year. For example, the Morley Gallery is proud to start 2017 by presenting ‘Journey to Justice’, a multi-media travelling exhibition focused on the US civil rights movement and its significance for the UK. Then in Music and Performing Arts, the first lunchtime concert of 2017, Tuesdays at 1pm, will kick off with a showcase of piano works composed by students. Just a glimpse of the exciting and thought provoking events to enjoy this term!
Whether you’re seeking to develop your skills, gain academic qualifications or develop your career, I wish you every success in your studies here at Morley College London.
Dr Andrew Gower, Principal
