UKCBC prides itself in creating academic partnerships that have guided local, expatriate and international students towards achieving their educational goals. Every single BTEC programme certification from UKCBC is awarded by Pearson — the world’s largest education company which translates to international recognition. The Pearson programmes are also partnered with 200+ universities, facilitating student transfers at various levels and enable young stalwarts to further their education every step of the way
The credit for its quality of excellence lies with none other than the visionary Geomon Joseph. Eighteen years ago, he set out to empower the less privileged and socially disadvantaged students by quick yet efficient upskilling through vocational courses offered by UKCBC. Sadly, he passed away in August 2020, but his legacy continues through the Geomon Joseph Foundation. His beloved spouse, Smitha George, has taken forward his mission by instituting the Foundation and taking up various support initiatives.
Geomon Joseph Foundation
The credit for UKCBC’s quality of excellence could not have been possible without the driving force that was Geomon Joseph, who envisioned this around two decades back with a college based in London, on one building floor and about 40 students. Eighteen years ago, he set out to empower the less privileged and socially disadvantaged students by quick yet efficient upskilling through vocational courses offered by UKCBC. His vision enveloped a sustainable and student-focused teaching model, and over the years, that mission has continued unfalteringly.
Though he is no longer with us, his dreams will live on through the Geomon Joseph Foundation, his family, and his staff. The chairperson, Smitha George, his beloved spouce is very firm in the conviction to further his mission by instituting the foundation and taking up various support initiatives.. The holistic development of the students will be the prime focus. Initiatives like merit scholarships, grants to less advantaged students, and support for innovative education projects are keyed as initiatives to be taken up by the Foundation.
The Geomon Joseph Foundation is aiming to issue over 500 academic scholarships/financial grants to students in the year 2022 and create another highly skilled cohort of students ready to rise to the challenges of the competitive global markets.
