Grand opening ceremony of iRegent Learning Centre

On the afternoon of Saturday 10th October 2015, Harrow’s newest and most exciting educational venture opened its doors for the first time as Regent Group launched its latest initiative, iRegent. iRegent is a centre offering supplementary tuition, but unlike many other centres in the locality, it is unique in offering tuition in a blended learning format. Blended learning combines the very best of digital learning content with the guidance of a real-life iTutor who guides and supports the online learning process. Students are assessed on joining, have digital tasks allocated by a qualified teacher, and are re-assessed at regular intervals to ensure progress is being made.

The long-awaited opening ceremony took place at the new centre, located just a couple of minutes’ walk from Rayners Lane station and welcomed Lord Dolar Popat as the Guest of Honour. The event was also attended by prominent local councillors as well as other key community members, Regent Group staff, and of course, members of the public who wanted to look at the state-of-the-art facilities where children were busy trialling the new programmes with much gusto.

Regent Learning Centre is a branch of north-west London based education group, Regent Group offers a complete range of educational services, ranging from childcare to adult education. Its supplementary education provision, Regent Learning Centre has been offering traditional tuition classes and private tuition since the turn of the millennium but has now enhanced its range of products to include this exciting new concept.

The opening ceremony was led by Group CEO, Mr Selva Pankaj, who led a tour of the stunning new facilities, followed by speeches from Lord Popat and other eminent guests and Mr Pankaj himself. After a photo session, the event culminated in a very welcome banquet of refreshments.
