Hear what schools have to say about working with us:

  • Acton High School has worked with West London College to provide introductions to apprenticeships and taster sessions in some of their vocational courses. We hope to collaborate more in the future as we have always found them to be really helpful and efficient.

    - Simone Stocks, Acton High School
  • The collaboration between Tomorrow's People at Ark Burlington Danes Academy and West London College has been incredibly valuable this year. In particular with my group of Year 11 students, allowing them to be clearer on a variety of post 16 options in Further Education and Apprenticeships and explore these in depth through taught sessions and fantastic open days and taster evenings. Rebecca has also provided comprehensive and detailed careers sessions, bespoke to my students, on a variety of different topics which has helped the students to have a clearer understanding of their future career aspirations and pathways they can take to achieve these. I look forward to the partnership continuing into the next academic year!

    - Vincenza De Falco, Tomorrow’s People at Ark Burlington Danes Academy
  • We have worked with West London College over the course of the academic year. Their support to our students have been fantastic. They offer a wide range of courses and have members of staff who are experts in their fields. We have had visits during assembly and careers week in which students were able to hear about courses and college life in general. We look forward to working with them next year.

    - Beth Curtis, Guru Nanak Sikh Academy
  • We’ve been delighted by our working relationship with West London College this year. It’s been a really creative partnership and has allowed us to fulfil our responsibilities to our students to offer impartial and excellent careers advice. WLC have a positive can-do approach to their outreach and have added real value at our next steps events for Years 11 – 13, helping our students make plans and choices about apprenticeships and vocational courses.

    - Sophie Harrowes, Hammersmith Academy
  • It has been wonderful to form a direct link between West London College and Gumley House Convent School this year. Our students thoroughly enjoyed the taster sessions and we look forward to returning next year.

    - Jane Pick, Gumley House Convent School
  • I want to thank you for an amazing day at your college, it was really fun. I enjoyed both taster sessions in ICT and Catering. I found the virtual reality experience really fun. The catering session was great. The current West London College students helped us were really good.

    - Chelsea, Student at Gumley House Convent School
  • Today, we went to West London College, it was really fun and I wish we could have stayed longer. We had our first session about virtual reality (VR). It was awesome and weird at the same time being in the VR headset! Then we went to catering, it was really fun. We made a vegetable frittata. I liked cracking the eggs. I enjoyed holding the knife and finding out how to chop with it correctly. Thank you for letting us come to your college.
