We understand that this is an exciting time for students who are leaving school. As parents you will want to ensure that your son/daughter makes the right decision for their future.
You will also want to know that as a college, we not only take an interest in our students’ success rates but also their general wellbeing while they are at College. We believe in working with you to help our students to succeed. 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 parents’ evenings and give you the opportunity to meet our tutors.
- Dedicated team of learning Support to enable students who have a range of learning difficulties, mental health needs and disabilities as well as support for study Skills.
- West London’s Colleges are proactive in offering support and varied educational pathways to High Need Students incorporating holistic approach to step into employment or further education. The Colleges work together with Health and Social care agencies and local authorities to inform the local offer.
Your child’s safety is of paramount importance at our College. Every student and staff member requires a personalised entry card to gain access to the site. The cards enable the College to monitor attendance via electronic registers so security and teaching staff know who is or isn’t on site.
Monitoring your son or daughter’s progress
Parents can check progress reports online through the Student Portal. Students simply log on to the secure College intranet (using their password details) and can access their coursework, exam grades, attendance figures and tutor comments.
To support students making the transition from school to college, students aged 16-19 will have 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 (a department dedicated to helping students progress onto the next stage, be it higher level courses, university or employment).
We also have a dedicated Learning Support team who enable students who have a range of learning difficulties, mental health needs and disabilities as well as provide support for study Skills.
Studying at Ealing, Hammersmith & West London College opens up many opportunities for career progression. On completion of their studies, students can progress onto a higher level course within the College, go on to study at university or secure employment in their chosen industry. We provide the support that students need to succeed.
