Message from Sheila Singh (Founder of LSA and Director)

The London School of Academics (LSA) is a registered Higher Education Institution (HEI) recognised by the Office for Students. Established in 2010, LSA is located at the Centre for Engineering and Manufacturing Excellence (CEME) in Rainham. LSA is dedicated to offering exceptional tailored courses aimed at empowering individuals facing various employment barriers to kickstart their careers in the business industry. This initiative aims to enhance diversity within the UK's business sector.

At LSA, our philosophy revolves around fostering excellence within the business realm, emphasising quality and precision. We cater to individuals aspiring to enhance their own lives while positively impacting others'.

Previously, LSA's flagship programme was the Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (DET), an intensive teacher training course that has successfully equipped over 1500 teachers. However, LSA has decided to discontinue offering the Teacher Training course. Instead, we are excited to introduce Business courses starting from September 2024, including a Higher National Certificate (HNC) and a Higher National Diploma (HND) in business, accredited by Pearson.

LSA maintains a rigorous assessment process, ensuring all candidates demonstrate functional skills at level 2 and undergo interviews before admission. Our humanistic teaching approach significantly contributes to high retention and graduate rates. In fact, over 90% of our new applicants are referred through word of mouth or recommendations from current and former students.

Driven by a vision for expansion, LSA has developed ambitious growth plans and is dedicated to community regeneration, recognising the importance of fostering diversity within the business sector. We remain committed to supporting charitable endeavours by sponsoring and fundraising for events aligned with our mission and objectives.

Our next intake is September 2024, our admissions process will open from February

London School of Academics will be recruiting for September 2024 intake in February.  If you are interested please contact us on our office number: 0208 596 7036 between the hours on 10am to 5pm. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
