Who we are

London Metropolitan College is a specialist niche higher education organisation established to develop a skillset in Project Management, Project Controls and improving complex projects and programmes. We are focused on upskilling the global workforce and do this by enabling organisations to achieve their business goals by educating their workforce.

We engage with employers and learners across numerous industry segments, particularly engineering and construction, where project controls are integral to delivery. Our apprenticeship programme is well developed, with our recent Ofsted report showing significant progress and results being delivered for our employers. We are passionate about providing education and development programmes that build this capability, helping organisations see the return on investment and return on expectation.

Currently engaged with employers throughout the UK, our international development of LMC is poised to progress rapidly in 2022.

Ofsted Comments on London Metropolitan College

We are delighted to announce a strong Ofsted outcome in our recent inspection with Good awarded across all inspection categories.

Ofsted commended apprentices’ diligence and the speed with which they learn on LMC’s carefully designed fast-track programmes: ‘Apprentices have a positive and purposeful attitude to their training. Apprentices quickly become more confident in their roles and take on new responsibilities at work and employers value the skills that apprentices develop and bring to the workplace’. Effective recruitment and onboarding processes mean that ‘employers and apprentices fully understand their commitment to the apprenticeship, and many pass with merits and distinctions’. (Ofsted Report March 2024)

Commenting on the outcome of the recent inspection, Executive Director Suresh Karanjeet said, ‘Above all, we keep our learners at the heart of everything we do and we are exceptionally proud of their achievements’. The inspection team identified a range of strengths which contribute to students’ success, including well-trained and knowledgeable lecturers, helpful career advice and guidance, and frequent contact with link tutors who support with meeting targets and managing workloads. Mr Karanjeet highlighted that as part of the ProjCon group, LMC students have unique access to industry expertise, resources and networking events both nationally and Internationally which enhance their experience

LMC was praised by inspectors for developing a ‘responsive curriculum that meets the local and national need for skilled project managers and controllers’ Creating various pathways into Higher Education means that ‘employees who would otherwise not have accessed higher education have the opportunity to achieve a degree’. Project Management is consistently reported as one of the biggest skill gaps both nationally and globally. Data from the London Chamber of Commerce Skills Report states that 32% of SMEs were likely to report a shortage of project management skills and for large businesses, that gap rose to 42%. The lack of appropriately skilled project managers is negatively impacting productivity in sectors including construction, engineering, local government, healthcare and manufacturing.

LMC’s mission is to continue to support organisations to increase productivity and achieve business goals through training a pipeline of highly skilled Project managers and Project Controllers who can successfully deliver complex projects in a challenging commercial environment. These programmes provide a fast track to degree and apprenticeship qualifications which lead to outstanding opportunities for personal and career progression.

We would like to thank our talented and dedicated team for their hard work and our stakeholders, employers and apprentices for their continuing support.
