Twenty-eight students from Lier School in Norway arrived once again this year as part of the EU funded Erasmus Exchange Programme (27 Oct - 10 Nov 19). The students who stayed with host families in London and are all studying either Health and Social Care or Business Studies, spent two weeks in classes with West London College students, as well as taking part in work placements. Earlier in the year West London College students visited the Lier students in Norway for their exchange programme (May 2019).
VTCT, an awarding and assessment organisation for technical qualifications in service sectors, officially presented West London College with a bursary worth £5,000 earlier this month (13 Nov 2019). The funds are to support Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy students who might otherwise be prevented from accessing education due to their personal circumstances.
West London College was out in force at Skills London 2019 at the weekend (Friday and Saturday, 15 and 16 November 2019) at ExCeL, in the heart of London’s Docklands. At the largest skills show in the UK devoted to 15 - 24 year olds, thousands of students and their families descended from all across London and the home counties to explore the wealth of jobs and career pathways open to them.
