Hereward College News

Wednesday, 17 October 2012


On Tuesday 16th October 2012 Hereward College has welcomed a visit from Edward Timpson MP, the Parliamentary under Secretary of State (Children & Families).  Mr Timpson was appointed to his ministerial position following the recent re-shuffle and one of his main responsibilities will be taking forward the proposed new special educational needs legislation.

The Minister has met with students and staff at the Tile Hill based College and has been given a tour of the campus to get a flavour of the provision offered.  Sheila Fleming, Principal and Chief Executive, said before the visit, The Minister’s visit will give us a great opportunity to showcase all that's great about the College.  We strive for excellence in ensuring that students have many opportunities to develop their potential, and shape their own futures, through a very diverse range of personal, cultural, sporting and vocational activities.  I am sure the Minister will find the visit enjoyable and informative, particularly in the context of the Government’s agenda around Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and funding reforms, which are the most significant changes in over 30 years.  Our students are looking forward to meeting Edward Timpson MP and giving him an insight into the issues they face on a daily basis as well as sharing their experiences as learners at Hereward College.”
