Our search for accreditation resulted in a partnership relationship with Trinity College and Seminary, Newburgh, USA in 2005 to run the Canterbury Christchurch University accredited graduate and post graduate courses. This arrangement ended in 2008.
In 2004, the Council of the College gave authorization to develop a collaborative partnership with a local British University. The College received a positive initial response from Middlesex University in 2006. This began the process that resulted in the approval of the College as a collaborative partner of Middlesex University in 2008. The College subsequently commenced the validation process of a degree programme, a degree with 3 pathways – BA (Hons) Theology and Biblical Studies, BA (Hons) Theology and Counselling and BA (Hons) Theology and Ministerial Studies.
In 2016 we entered into a new partnership with Roehampton University who validated three new courses: BA (Hons) Theology and Practical Ministry, BA (Hons) Theology and Media Culture and BA (Hons) Theology and Youth Ministry. We are looking forward to welcoming more students onto these courses.
The College provides other courses in addition to purely theological courses. We also run Christian counselling courses leading to the Diploma in Counselling.
In view of the ever-changing environment and the need to engage with the changing world, the college management decided, in 2006, that it needed to enlarge the College’s training provision. It considered courses that would be relevant to the College’s core values and target group and decided to offer training courses that would enhance the knowledge of leaders. This resulted in the decision to provide business management courses and information technology courses. This decision resulted in the College obtaining accreditation with Pearson’s to run their courses.
This, of course, is not the end of our story. The best is yet to be! We progress forwards with our confidence in God to lead and guide us in the days ahead.
