Who is Ealing, Hammersmith & West London College for?
Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College welcomes students from all walks of life with lots of different needs and goals.
What services do we offer?
We have a curriculum devised specifically for learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities who, for whatever reason, cannot access mainstream provision. We welcome a broad range of ability levels from leaners with profound and complex learning difficulties to learners with high functioning autism.
These learners will enrol into the Inclusive Learning Department and be able to access all of our curriculum areas from sports to hairdressing.
Learners accessing our Inclusive Learning Department can study with us for a maximum of four years, depending on the availability of a suitable progression pathway.
Learners accessing our Gatehouse provision for young people with a diagnosis of high functioning autism can access our provision for a maximum of two years before progressing onto the mainstream or employment.
We offer a range of Link Courses to local special schools. These courses are usually aimed at young people in their last or penultimate year of school education.
We are also working in partnership with Ealing Borough, Ealing Mencap and the Hilton T5 at Heathrow to deliver Project Search. This is a partnership venture, which prepares young disabled people for competitive employment.
How do I access the service?
Dates for taster days are published in early October each year. These taster days allow us to meet prospective learners and their parents/carers and to carry out an early initial assessment to see whether we can meet the learners' needs.
We also welcome visits from parents at any point in the year. Parents/carers can ring and book an appointment with the Head of Department or Programme Manager.
For those learners directly enrolling onto the mainstream courses support can be offered from two main departments, Additional Learning Support and Disability Support. Enrolment is in August, and learners will be able to meet the teams.
The college prospectus is published yearly on the college website.
We take our duties under the Equality Act 2010 seriously and each year we publish on our website our Equality and Diversity report.
