HISTORY & BACKGROUND
Set up initially in 2000 as a business enterprise and thereafter in 2003 registered as a private limited company, London College of Business and Law (LCBL) was established with the aim at the time of providing tuition for LLB Degree students of University of London International Programmes.
At LCBL, we offer a range of courses right up to the University of London LLB Degree. For those not willing to pursue a degree course, level 3 courses in Business, Law, Nursing as well as Health and Social Care are also routes for learners aged 19+ to study and progress to UK universities after a period of six months to one year. Learners willing to gain admission to UK universities through this route will be able to do so with funding support from the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA). Apprenticeship courses are offered in disciplines that include Business, Computing, Hospitality and Catering. Functional Skills in English language and Mathematics at level 2 are also offered.
One of our core aims is to meet the needs of learners at whichever level they join our college and assist them in arriving at the intellectual level they desire. This explains our particular interest in providing tuition for level 3 courses in disciplines that include Business, Law, Nursing as well as Health and Social Care. These courses engage our college in a form of social mobility. The course provides a second chance for learners wishing to undertake degree studies at UK universities who may not possess the requisite educational qualifications like GCE A levels. Such a position also allows LCBL to admit learners who are over 19 years old and possess sufficient competence in English language and Mathematics, together with the hunger and commitment to successfully complete the Access courses.
Dedication and commitment to learning is our core value at LCBL. We recognise knowledge acquisition on three levels: student, employee and organisational – and the integrative relationship between the three levels is the minimum requirement for a successful College. Learning and scholarship for learners and employees is considered important, whilst also recognising organisational learning as a means to continually improving the college. Our supporting values include inclusiveness and diversity; innovation; collaboration/partnerships; excellence; integrity; good communication; leadership; respect; and stewardship.
LCBL enjoys a good location in Wealdstone, Harrow, a suburb of North West London, which is a 2 minute walk from Harrow and Wealdstone Underground (Bakerloo Line) and Overground Stations. The area is close to the new Wembley Stadium and 12 minutes train ride from central London (Euston Station). Heathrow Airport, which is the nearest International Airport, is 40 minutes drive from our College, whilst there is also a direct train from Gatwick Airport to Harrow and Wealdstone Station.
LCBL is also within walking distance from Wealdstone Library and Harrow Civic Centre Library. St. Ann’s and St. Georges Shopping Centre is 10 minutes bus ride from LCBL, whilst Harrow Leisure Centre is within walking distance from our College.
Our classroom facilities are modern, well equipped and furnished with wall-to-wall carpeting throughout. The lecture rooms are bright and airy, warm in winter and well ventilated in summer. The desks and chairs are comfortable and help students to focus on their learning. The lecture rooms are equipped with modern teaching aids, which include multi-media facilities as well as broadband and Wi-Fi facilities. The lecture rooms are also equipped with Power- point Projectors, Electric/Manual screens as well as Audio facilities
LCBL provides wireless and fully networked computer facilities for the use of our learners as an integral part of our Learning Resource Centre. Our internet facilities are available for the use of our learners even outside class times. LCBL currently has 20 computer terminals available exclusively for our learners’ use. The internet facilities provide a very useful tool for research work and further study.
Learning Resource Centre and E-Learning Facilities
LCBL has its own Learning Resource Centre, which doubles as a private study area and contains most recommended books our students require to facilitate their assignments and research work. Our students also have access to the local library – Wealdstone Library.
