A £350k investment by the college across both its campuses, one located in Barley Lane and a second in Hoxton, has redeveloped and equipped the accommodation with the very highest spec teaching facilities for students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

New facilities in the upgraded SEND learning accommodation includes training flats, a training café, new sensory rooms (both light and dark), wet rooms, break out and quiet spaces and new larger more spacious classrooms all equipped with new computers and IT.

The college is currently responsible for 170 students with a range of special educational needs, behavioural issues and disabilities including sensory impairments, autism and learning disabilities.

Speaking at the launch, Narzny Khan, deputy principal and director of SEND at New City College, said: “This redevelopment offers our students the very highest facilities, which have been designed around their educational and social needs.

“It also gives their families the reassurance that their children will be able to thrive and grow in a safe and motivating environment designed solely for SEND students, whilst preparing them to integrate steadily into the college provision.”

The curriculum offer includes pre-entry and entry level courses, where students can progress onto developing independent living skills, communication skills, life skills and developing independence.

SEND students, their parents and staff as well as special invited guests from both Redbridge and Hackney Councils attended a launch party on Thursday, December 6, with the food and refreshments specially prepared by the SEND students in their training kitchen.

Guests were in for a treat when track and field athlete TJ Ossai arrived to the launch and gave an inspiring message to students and guests.
