A very warm welcome to West London college, where our students are at the heart of everything we do. We aim to give every young person who comes through our doors a wide range of new skills and experiences that will prepare them for their next step, whether that be progressing in education or on to employment.
Our Partnership With You
We know how important the partnership between the College and you is in ensuring your child reaches their full potential both inside and outside the classroom. That’s why we:
- Communicate regularly with you to keep you informed of your son or daughter’s progress
- Provide you with progress reports on performance, coursework deadlines, exams and attendance.
- Invite you to regular parents evenings and give you the opportunity to meet our tutors
- Have a dedicated team offering learning support to enable students who have a range of learning difficulties, mental health needs and disabilities succeed
- Are proactive in offering support and varied educational pathways to high need students, incorporating a holistic approach to step into employment or further education
We encourage all parents and caregivers to take an active interest in what their child is doing in College. As a parent or guardian, you are a great supportive role model for your young person, and your encouragement and guidance can make a big difference.
Safety, Security & SafeguardinG
To support students making the transition from school to College, they will be assigned a personal tutor who can offer help and advice and be there to discuss any problems or concerns they may have. We have a range of student support services, including counselling, welfare advice and careers.
Our students’ safety is of the highest importance to us. You can rest assured that each of our Colleges is a safe environment where everyone is free to reach their full potential. All students, staff and visitors need a personalised ID badge to access College buildings, and security teams are on hand at all times. We also have a team of trained safeguarding officers based at each College and strongly encourage students to take any queries or concerns they have to them.
