“I’ve really enjoyed learning about communication skills, especially with regard to caring for adults. We’ve learned how to treat adult patients with respect, understanding how they feel, and making them feel empowered. My work experience was at a local hospital and I was able to transfer all these skills to the job. I’m now studying Nursing at Bucks New University.”
“We are delighted with the remarkable outcomes of former West Thames College students who progressed to BA degrees in Education and Childcare or Teaching at Kingston University. Their results were impressive by any standard – significantly above local and national averages in terms of completion, level and grade distribution, and commended by exam boards. Long may the successful partnership between Kingston University and West Thames College continue.”
