Access and Admissions Policy

Information for parents

Waltham Forest College acknowledges the crucial input by parents/carers in relation to helping learners make informed choices about their future careers prospect. Labour Market Information (LMI) is available via the Pathway Tools on our website for parents/carers to access. This shows progression options (under each course listed on our website) to the careers students can do. Applicants are fully informed on the route to their chosen career, can see their future prospects and are better suited to the courses for which they apply.

The College will work closely with parents/carers and inform them of their son's/daughter's progress and future career goals by keeping them informed and publishing the Careers Programme.
