Fast-expanding higher education establishment gets ready to open in Greenford this summer
Global Banking School (GBS) is all set to open its brand-new campus in Greenford in London this summer, the latest in its fast-expanding roster of teaching facilities across the country.
GBS offer flexible, quality higher education courses in the fields of banking/finance, healthcare and business management. The organization has taken great care to provide industry-relevant courses that maximise the chances of gaining their dream career, starting a new business or expanding their existing business.
GBS has taken over 68,759 sq ft at 891 Greenford Road, and has spent the past few months transforming it into a modern and welcoming learning facility.
The Greenford campus will allow another 5,000 students to benefit from studying with GBS and comprises a host of well-equipped classrooms and lecture theatres.
Other facilities include cafeteria, student common rooms, study areas, learning resource centre, computer labs, library, multi-faith prayer room and cycle park.
GBS takes pride in its approach to the welfare of its students and its goal to integrate into the communities it establishes in.
In the past two years staff numbers within GBS have grown from 50 to over 300, and the organisation is still actively seeking to fill numerous additional vacancies including teaching and customer service personnel.
The Greenford campus will become GBS’ fifth facility in the UK, alongside the Canary Wharf and Olympic Park campuses in East London, the Universal Square campus in Manchester and the Fazeley Street campus in Birmingham.
Professor Ray Lloyd, Chief Executive of GBS, said: “The opening of the Greenford campus is great news during a time that has been so difficult for the nation, providing jobs for the community and a modern learning facility for our students.
“We firmly believe that GBS is different in that we see our campuses as a part of the neighbourhood they are in, offering employment and study opportunities for the local communities. We want to fully integrate into our surroundings, as well as do what we do best – offer flexible courses for those wanting to take advantage of the opportunities education can bring.
“I am certain our students, neighbours, local community leaders and staff will all find a warm welcome when they set foot inside the Greenford campus.”
The Greenford campus will open fully as soon as Government Covid-19 guidelines allow.
