We recognise the importance of further education and the challenges which many underprivileged and vulnerable young adults encounter in accessing what we regard as a right, rather than a privilege. 

The amazing commitment and results that the Learning Revolution Trust, through Newham College of Further Education continue to show is only matched by that of the students, whose achievements seem to know no limits. 

Goldline’s association with this ongoing project and with the students, staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to achieve their joint objectives, gives us enormous pride and as such we are happy to offer our support and we thank all involved for giving us this wonderful opportunity.
