Student Ambassadors showed their creative side when they took part in a cookie decorating activity to mark Colleges Week.  

In Bake Off style, they were provided with a giant cookie, decorating equipment, and were given a set time limit to decorate the cookie under the theme of the week ‘Love Our Colleges’. 

They each then presented their cookies and an explanation of why they loved the College to a panel which included Principal Tracy Aust and Director Michael Michaelides.

In January 2021 West Thames College partnered with Hounslow Job Centre Plus (JCP) to create a Youth Hub supporting the Government’s economic recovery plan and Department of Work’s objectives to help maximise off-flow into employment and reduce economic inactivity following the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Youth Hub, a service for residents of London Borough of Hounslow, aged between 18 and 24, enabled access to mentoring services, advice and guidance for employability support and mental health awareness, and helped to develop digital skills through the use of technology.

More than 10 ICT and Business students have been selected by CISCO for their virtual work placement in October. One of the world’s leading technology companies, CISCO, selected 13 Level 3 students through a meticulous competitive process which attracted several hundreds of applications. Nine students are from ICT and four from Business. The applicants were asked to identify their interests in technology and elaborate on their knowledge of the work carried out by CISCO. They also had to outline their possible take-away from the virtual work placement.
