These programmes help build your confidence, improve your wellbeing, enable you to gain new skills and enhance your employment prospects.

Here at Lambeth College we provide a high-quality, caring and flexible curriculum for those seeking to reach the next stage of their journey, be it studying at a higher level or entering the world of work. Whether you have started a course and realised it’s not for you or you have not been in college for a while but think it’s the time to return, we have a range of courses for 16-18s who need to improve their basic skills.
