During this festive period, the students of West Thames College have been embodying the spirit of giving back to the community. Through their acts of kindness and selflessness, these students are not only brightening the holiday season but also fostering a sense of unity and solidarity within the community.

 Health and Childcare Students Spread Festive Cheer!

Our Health and childcare students supported the ‘Hardest Day Of The Year’ campaign by Age UK by creating handmade Christmas cards which were delivered to a care home in the local area. No one should be made to feel lonely, especially at this time of year. We are so proud of our students for doing their bit to tackle loneliness in older people.

Green Skills at West Thames College
15 students got to work learning gardening skills and knowledge of allotments to support a local women's group with the help of the Hounslow Environment Champions and Groundwork London. After following instructions and working together as a team, the allotment was cleared, covered and put to bed for the winter. The students all got a certificate and there’s even talk of future employment opportunities through the Green Work 4 All scheme.

Student Voice Hounslow
Our Level 1 ICT ESOL group actively participated in the Student voice Hounslow Workshop. The goal of this workshop was to foster engagement with the younger generation and gain insights into their perspectives on interacting with the council. The contributions made by the group proved to be instrumental in generating effective and sustainable solutions to bridge the gap between council and youth.

“It was a nice feeling to know that the council and government are interested in our opinions. I hope the council consider the many ideas we had at the workshop such as holding more youth events to bring people from different backgrounds together”

“This workshop exceeded my expectations, it really enhanced my understanding and I enjoyed getting my ideas across to the council. Now I believe that i can work directly with the council”

Supported Learning Department Christmas Craft Stall

Our Supported Learning students have been working hard since September to design and make items for their Craft Stall. They have been making cards, lanterns, calendars, and pencil cases to sell. 10% of the money raised is going towards the Pensioners Alone at Christmas Charity who are hosting a Christmas dinner/party for those living in the Hounslow borough who will be alone at Christmas. The craft stall was set up in our Atrium and open during lunchtime for students and staff!1 Christmas fair
