About Us


We Are The Learning Revolution Trust

Our mission is to make further education accessible to all young people in East London, no matter what their background or family circumstances.

It’s a fact: education improves young people’s life chances and is a gateway to social mobility. East London is one of the most vibrant and diverse areas in the country and has produced countless talented and successful people. At the same time however, poverty and social deprivation prevents many east Londoners from accessing educational opportunities. To break the cycle of underachievement and poverty, those from disadvantaged backgrounds need to have fair access to further education to achieve their aspirations and reach their full potential. Established by Newham College of Further Education, The Learning Revolution Trust supports disadvantaged students in East London by removing the financial and social barriers to education. In this way, it is creating a culture of ambition, opportunity and learning.
