Strategic Plan 2021 – 2025

2020 was an extraordinary year, calling for an extraordinary response to our planning for the future.
As London, the UK and the world look to recover from an unprecedented year of uncertainty and change, so Morley looks to support students as they adapt to life with and after Covid, and in a country that now stands alongside rather than within the European Union.

Morley’s previous Strategic Plan covered the period 2016-2020, and in that time, the College has experienced significant change, especially in the final year of the Plan: the impact of the joining of Kensington and Chelsea College through merger in early 2020 – coupled with the seismic effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on our operations – is still playing out.

But still playing out too is the impact of 2020 on each and every one of our students.

It is in order to effectively manage that process of change and adaptation to new circumstances – for us as an organisation, and in support of our students as individuals – that Morley College London is taking a staged approach to strategic planning for 2021-25.

Whilst the mission, values, vision, themes and goals outlined in this Preliminary Strategic Plan 2021-25 are essentially final, we take the view that – given the fast-changing world around us – our communities are best served by a willingness to further develop, to adapt, and to demonstrate agility.

Hence, this plan is a preliminary release, with enhancements to follow in anticipation of the start of the 2021/22 academic year.
