West London College is proud to announce its top position in the latest National Achievement Rate Tables (NART). West London College secured first position in the table for both Overall Achievement Rate and Adult Achievement Rate in London. It was also the only London GFE college in the top 10 colleges nationally.
The list, which covers different educational and training provision categories, is released annually and recognises delivery of measurable results by individual providers. West London College achieved a high rate of 91.3%.
Garry Phillips, CEO at West London College, commented:
“I am very proud that West London College has achieved the top position in this year’s tables. These results clearly show that if you want to succeed, you should come to West London College.”
The nationally-wide table, which was released by the Department of Education on 22 March 2018, demonstrates the success of the College’s long-term strategy to increase achievement rates through innovative teaching methods as well as additional academic support that all West London College students receive.
West London College focuses on achievements and continuous improvement and has celebrated many successes over the past two years. In 2017 the College earned a Good Ofsted rating, recognising our commitment to employability and career progression as well as the consistent increase in achievements.
In October 2017 we became the first Google Reference College in London. This status awarded our dedication to the embedding of technology in education and our success in incorporating Google Suite for Education into teaching. The Google team were impressed with the speed of the transformation, which was achieved through our specialised project Going Google: The West London Way. The Google transformation project also impressed judges of the prestigious TES FE Awards and West London College was the only London college to win an award, taking home the honour of most innovative use of technology in 2017.
Garry Phillips, said:
“Our position at the top of the table is a fantastic achievement that was four years in the making. It proves our commitment to ensuring that students achieve in line with their and our expectations and demonstrates the improvement and success that was previously recognised by other bodies, including Ofsted and Google. I am impressed and overwhelmed by the dedication of staff and hard work of students and would like to take this opportunity to thank all of them for their dedication as we continue to grow and improve.”
