The official opening of Westminster Kingsway College's redesigned Victoria Centre took place on Monday 23 May with the event led by Andy Wilson, designated CEO of Central London Colleges Group (CLCG), who introduced past and present students to unveil a plaque, marking the launch of the new building.
Westminster Kingsway College is a founding partner in the CLCG and has been ambitious in its approach to redesigning one of its learning facilities. The centre now incorporates new conference suites, three College restaurants and pop up retail shops.
"We have been planning the redevelopment of our Victoria Centre for more than 10 years," said Wilson. We knew we had a once in a lifetime opportunity to create a landmark facility for Hospitality, Business and Enterprise in the very heart of London and we wanted a building where those who already work in these sectors and those who aspire to do so would feel equally at home."
The College is now also home to the Vincent Square Conference Centre, which will be run by students and operate alongside three commercial restaurants.
The Queen's Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education was also celebrated at the event, and recognises the College's successes in serving employers in the Hospitality sector.
