Welcome from the Principal
I want to welcome you to Waltham Forest College. I am delighted that you are considering the College for your future study or training needs and want to find out more about our courses and services we offer.
From the moment you walk into our spectacular building you can see that this is a college built for success. We recognise that your next step could shape the rest of your life and it is our job to make sure you have the right skills, qualifications and guidance to get there.
Waltham Forest College is one of London’s most successful Colleges and our vision is to help you achieve the best possible future. In February 2018 Ofsted judged the College to be ‘Good’ in all that we do and we are proud to be described as an ‘inclusive college’.
If you plan to join us straight from school, we have a wide range of pathways to choose from and we will make sure that you are fully supported throughout your time with us. This includes receiving high quality advice and guidance to help you make informed choices that will prepare you for life after College.
You may want to earn while you learn and become an apprentice. Many employers work closely with us for their staff and apprenticeship recruitment and value highly the standards of work readiness our students demonstrate.
If you are an adult who wants to build your skills to improve your life-chances we have everything you need to help you learn in College. Or, if you have been working and you want to change and do something different we can guide and support you in that too.
You may be looking to gain a Higher Education qualification by studying locally which makes real financial sense. We offer a growing number of courses right here at your doorstep delivered in small group sizes, with plenty of social interaction between students and lecturers – providing an outstanding level of support for all our learners.
Whatever your interest, do browse through our website but don’t forget to visit us and experience this for yourself by attending one of our Open Events which will provide you with an opportunity to take a good look around the College, meet tutors and hear from students why they have chosen to study here at the College.
We want to support you to ‘Create Your Future’ by reaching your careers goals and making sure no-one is left behind.
I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the College.
Principal and Chief Executive
