London School of Academics was registered as a company on the 9th of March 2010 on the promise by the Director Sheila Singh to open a path way to education for those of diverse backgrounds. Sheila Singh has over 20 years’ experience in the teaching field, and has taught teacher training and related courses in many main stream colleges and universities.
Sheila took the decision to open London School of Academics after facing discrimination in relation to her gender, race and disability. Determined to show people experiencing the same treatment as herself that they can achieve their dreams she took the steps to develop a college which places learners at the heart of it with no form of discrimination.
The college in it’s first year delivered the Preparing to Teach in Lifelong Learning programme and the Level 5 Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector to a cohort of 20 learners and now trains on average over 100 learners a year. Our area of specialism lies with teacher training and related courses. Currently we deliver the Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training, Award in Education and Training, CIEH Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid and Level 3 Award in First Aid at Work. The college is recognised as a Higher Education Institution.
London School of Academics has been awarded Barclays Trading Places Awards: Top 100 Business's in the UK and Women's Business of the Year; Outstanding Stars award by Newham College of Further Education.
The college has a diverse team who specialise in different areas including Education, Law, English and Media.
