Dear <<First Name>>,

Welcome to the latest edition of Onboard!
Welcome to the latest edition of Onboard.

We hope you are enjoying the spring weather, and the increasing freedom as we move out of Covid restrictions and towards more normal life.

We are delighted that you have chosen to study a <<Course Area>> course with us. It has never been a better time to study this subject.

At West London College we have excellent teachers, facilities and resources, this will ensure that you go on to achieve career success.

We’ve included a video of our most recent virtual open day in this edition so that you have all of the information you need about your course (Childcare talk starts 01.14; Health & Social Care starts 13.20).

We look forward to seeing you at College very soon.

Reasons to be Cheerful

  • Your health, social care or childcare course will give you the theoretical and practical knowledge you need for success at university or at work. The College has excellent employer links to help you gain employment in your chosen field.
  • In 2018/19, West London College’s overall pass rate across all subject areas from Entry Level to Level 3 and all ages, including young people and adults was 94.9%.
  • West London College's last Ofsted inspection grade was 'Good' for overall effectiveness (May 2017). 

In your industry

  • There is enormous demand for nurses in the NHS as well as healthcare workers in the public and private sector. The growing healthcare needs of our ageing population and the impact of Covid-19 has led to the expansion of jobs in healthcare.
  • In London, the number of children aged 0-14 is expected to grow in the next few years, so the demand for childcare will rise too.

Here are two frequently asked questions from the feedback surveys in editions 1 and 2 of Onboard. If you’ve got any questions, please pop them in the Quick Poll below.

Do I need to study English and maths with my main course?

If you already have GCSE English and Maths at Grade 4/C when you start with us, you will not need to continue to study English and Maths at College.

If you are aged 16-18 on a full-time course and you do not already have GCSE English and GCSE Maths at Grade 4/C or above, you will need to study for these qualifications. This is a Government requirement, and all colleges do this.

You will find that having Grade 4/C or above in English and Maths is required by most employers and by universities too, which is why they are such important qualifications for you to have.

We will assess your English and maths skills when you start at College, and arrange for you to study either GCSE or Functional Skills English and Maths, depending on your skills level.

Study for these English and maths qualifications is free for young people aged 16-18 and for adults.
