West London College has recently introduced a range of new courses for 16-18-year-olds to help them get back to education. Designed to offer real progression opportunities, the Step Up programmes will support young people in the borough.
Starting at the end of February and running through to summer the Step Up Programme focuses on helping students bridge the gap of qualifications and skills before starting a higher level course in September 2019.
Over 783,000* people aged 16-24 were Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET) in 2018, increasing the likelihood of poor mental and physical health, unemployment and low wages or low quality of work life.
The Step Up courses can help young people who need support to return to study. Offered in Sports & Leisure, Business, Culinary, IT and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), each short course helps students to improve their skills and prepare for life at College.
