3 A review of the Learner First strategy and celebrating success INTRODUCTION FROM THE CHAIR OF GOVERNORS AND PRINCIPAL Putting the Learner First is at the heart of everything we do. Our purpose is to achieve excellence and our learners are central to that journey, determining its direction from the onset. We constantly seek creative and innovative ways to ensure that the learning experience is the best that it can possibly be. In reviewing our progress so far, we are pleased to say that since its inception in 2009, the Learner First strategy is leading the College forward. The strategy provides a clear focus on how we intend to meet the current challenges within the Further Education sector and also identifies how we plan to continue providing equality of opportunity and access to skills so that our learners can progress onto university or employment. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Iain Mackinnon, who stepped down in May 2010 from his role as Chair of Governors, for his commitment and energy. Iain continues to help us govern and is also now Chair of the West London Student Trust a charity set up by the College to support students who cannot afford to continue with their studies. Our Learner First vision is to give every one of our students access to the power of learning and this remains at the forefront of every decision we make. It is clear that whatever our challenges; the insight, innovation and creativity of our highly valued staff will continue to greatly enhance the students learning journey. Julia Clements-Eliott Chair of Governors Paula Whittle Principal / Chief Executive 4 The SU is a fantastic opportunity for us to influence senior management and ensures students views are kept at the heart of every decision The SU also gives us great skills and will make us stand out from the crowd. Prablin, Students Union President The Learner First strategy sets out an ambitious vision for improvement through putting interests of learners at the heart of the college s work. The strategy, together with more clearly defined management roles and responsibilities for curriculum and cross-college managers, is well understood and supported by staff, learners and other stakeholders.

STUDENT SERVICES I remember becoming a single mum and thinking about how I was going to turn my life around. I realised the only way to become successful was to get back into education. It was daunting at first because I knew little English, but I set myself a goal and worked hard to achieve it. I have to thank my tutors for the advice and encouragement they gave me. I m not sure I could have done it without them. Miwako Foundation Degree in Business, Ministry of Defence Award Winner 2010 with Olympic sport star Jason Gardener, MBE 7

10 WORKING WITH EMPLOYERS FINANCIAL STATEMENT The College continues to build and maintain excellent working relationships with employers which is substantiated by the results of an independent survey by QDP Services Ltd. This trend is reflected by a 10% growth in employers who said they were satisfied with the service they receive from the College. Our score from the same survey found that 77% of employers would recommend the College to others almost double the national average result of 40% and placing the College in the top 25% of providers surveyed. The College also received Training Quality Standard (TQS) certification in May 2010 a national benchmark recognising excellence in working with employers. The Standard helps employers to identify high quality and high impact training that maximises return on investment. The College continues to provide flexible training and assessment on our premises. These qualifications are an important part of our training programme to enhance staff in their work roles Emma Tracey, Head of Vocational Development, Hammersmith Hospitals NHS Trust WE WORK WITH OVER 200 EMPLOYERS AND OFFER APPRENTICESHIPS IN: BRICKWORK BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION CARPENTRY ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION HOSPITALITY & CATERING In 2009/10 the College undertook three major restructuring initiatives to position itself better for the future. The curriculum management structure was redesigned to focus on improving quality and consistency, with new Heads of Department managing provision across all College campuses. Then, following this the sales and contracting team was reorganised to concentrate more clearly on the commercial opportunities the College needs to pursue to secure its future. Finally, the administration function was restructured to offer consistent support to teaching and learning departments across the College. All of these decisions were made in accordance with our Learner First principles to ensure that they had a positive impact on our learners experiences. The College continued to invest in its infrastructure and equipment, working to ensure that facilities are continually improved and that learners enjoy a safe and inspiring environment in which to study. In a year of many changes and challenges, the College s financial robustness ensured that there was a small surplus at the operating level. With even stronger challenges in the following years, such results will be increasingly difficult to maintain, but the College remains committed to strong finances for the sake of its current and future learners.

12 CASE STUDY 1. CASE STUDY 2. WEST LONDON STUDENT TRUST SAFEGUARDING AN OUTSTANDING APPROACH TO KEEPING STUDENTS SAFE West London Student Trust is the College s dedicated charity, aimed at helping students continue to study. We believe that no one should be denied an education because they cannot afford to study, so where possible we will provide money for everyday costs such as fees and books and equipment. As the Trust establishes itself, we will be able to help more students and be much more ambitious in what we do. Stakeholders and the general public can help through supporting the Trust s fundraising activities, by suggesting new fundraising opportunities and by making a donation. The Trust welcomes every donation, no matter how small. If everyone who cares about the College donates a small amount of money every month we can do much more. And if you can do it through Gift Aid (where we get the tax back from Government), we can do more still because every pound becomes Please do what you can to help. wlc.ac.uk/westlondonstudenttrust West London Student Trust Putting Learners First Ealing, Hammersmith & West London College has adopted a whole organisation approach to ensuring that its learners are able to work and develop in a safe, secure and inspiring environment. We recognise the absolute importance of ensuring our learners are safe and we continue to embed appropriate policies into the curriculum and within service areas. Across all campuses, we promote a safe and inspiring learning ethos through our SHAPE (Safe/Healthy/ Achieve/Positive Contribution/Economic Well-Being) campaign, which underpins the Government s Every Learner Matters agenda and this is delivered through a range of interactive and extra-curricular activities throughout the year, including: Our recent safeguarding campaign RESPECT, PROTECT, DETECT encourages students to adopt a pro-active approach towards looking out for their friends and taking care of their surroundings The active work of our Safeguarding Champions and Student Mentors A free Safeguarding Hotline A RESPECT Talent Competition and a Keep Safe Week which expanded the conventional definition of safeguarding, through presentations from external organisations (e.g. Police Trident Department, London Fire Brigade, a rapper and ex-gang member Napoleon), inviting students to put their own stamp on what safeguarding means to them. Online staff safeguarding training. WHAT NEXT? Strengthening our relationship with key partners such as the police, sexual health workers and road safety officers. Further online safeguarding training for staff. Creation of a Keep Safe Communications Group which will encourage students to broaden their understanding of safeguarding. 22 Procedures for safeguarding learners are outstanding... comprehensive staff training has ensured good awareness of safeguarding issues including bullying and harassment. Learners are very confident that the college is a safe place in which to learn. Ofsted

13 CASE STUDY 3 THE SPORTS ACADEMY FOOTBALL AND BASKETBALL One of the success stories over the past two years at the College has been the huge increase of young people taking part in sport thanks to a new emphasis on healthy lifestyles. From September 2011, programmes for a new Sports Academy will begin in partnership with Queens Park Rangers and Let Me Play focusing on football and basketball and encouraging young people to think of sport as a valid career choice. With the goal of encouraging young people to choose an active lifestyle through the Academy, our exciting partnership with two leading sport organisations will deliver quality coaching giving students a fantastic introduction to a career in sport. QPR is proud to be working in partnership with Ealing, Hammersmith & West London College to provide opportunities through sport for students. From the work we have already done with the College, it is clear that the discipline, teamwork and communication skills students learn in training transfer directly into the classroom. Danny Edwards, QPR Community Coach Participation in sport by year olds at the College is now three times higher than the national average The College is encouraging students to look at the sports industry in a different way, in particular to the wealth of careers on offer in what is a multi-billion pound industry. College Sport has also taken partnership working to new heights with strong working relationships with the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham and Active Planet. For further information visit wlc.ac.uk/collegesport or our Facebook page: Ealing, Hammersmith & West London College/collegesport We are incredibly excited to take on the Academy basketball programme. We have had a lot of success this year with our men s team winning the League, making the semi-finals of the national cup competition and with establishing a women s team for the first time. There has been a real buzz around basketball at the College which is a fantastic foundation for the Sports Academy. Matthew Lord, Let Me Play Director College Sport has developed from what was historically a recreational style into a competitive, professional approach with an emphasis on performance. 24 wlc.ac.uk Mark Sullivan, Sport Manager, Ealing, Hammersmith LEARNER FIRST & West CELEBRATING London College SUCCESS 25

14 CASE STUDY 4. SKILLSET CRAFT AND TECHNICAL SKILLS ACADEMY In March 2010 the British Film industry received a major boost with the launch of a new training academy that provides apprenticeships and qualifications for people working behind the scenes in film. The ground-breaking, strategic alliance is an exciting development for the College and the film industry. The new Skillset Craft and Technical Skills Academy is the first of its kind and is a collaboration between Skillset the Sector Skills Council for the Creative Media and Ealing, Hammersmith & West London College. Working closely with studios and other film-based companies, the Academy aims to become a centre of excellence in film, providing apprenticeships and qualifications for people working in trades such as cameramen, grips and set design across the UK film industry. A shortfall of qualified talent has been highlighted in seven craft and technical disciplines and these make up the first training courses offered by the Academy. These disciplines are Camera, Lighting, Hair & Make Up, Editing, Animation, Runners, Grips and Wardrobe. Qualifications can be gained by experienced industry professionals through workplace assessment (studio or location). Training courses for new entrants vary in length, on average between 12 and 24 months, and involve on-set training, structured practical experience and assessment. The training initiative is made possible through funding received from industry contributions to the Skills Investment Fund (SIF), the levy on productions filmed in the UK, and is part of Skillset s The Bigger Future 2 initiative. The Academy will change the way the film industry recruits and develops the talent of the future 26 The Skillset Craft and Technical Skills Academy will support industry professionals who want to secure qualifications in order to gain an advantage when competing for film work as well as providing opportunities for new entrants who want a career in the film industry. Britain is now competing globally to attract production companies to the UK and investment in UK films. The qualifications of UK craft and technical crews, along with easy access to set-ready freelancers and apprentices, help attract an influx of foreign productions choosing to shoot in the UK. Skillset research shows that employment in creative industries is robust and in the summer of 2010 creative employment totalled over two million jobs. With predictions of further growth in Britain s creative industry (up to 3.7 per cent on average for the next four years) there is a real need to ensure the right skills are in place to meet demand. Producer Iain Smith (Wanted, Children of Men), chair of Skillset s Film Skills Council, said the Academy was a great example of the film profession and academia working together to solve a genuine industry issue. The Academy will change the way the film industry recruits and develops the talent of the future. We ve worked side-by-side with professional crews and production companies to determine the skills they need and the future issues they might face. The Academy is going to be a lynchpin for the industry with the long-term vision to keep the UK s behind-the-scenes talent second to none. Principal Paula Whittle said The Academy will provide the UK film industry with a strong support system that will help it to flourish. We are proud to be part of a project that focuses exactly on what is needed by employers and that will provide a solid foundation for competition on a global stage. Crew working on a film set 27

15 CASE STUDY 5. Over the past academic year, our outstanding Supported Learning department has secured paid employment in both the community and within our College for its students SUPPORTING STUDENTS INTO EMPLOYMENT Students within the supported learning department are continuing to benefit from our positive approach to disability. We have made real progress towards our ambition of preparing learners for independent living and employment and this is something we are very proud of. The Ofsted Inspection also recognised the following points: Care, guidance and support are outstanding. The range of provision is outstanding. In January 2011, the College was again awarded outstanding by Ofsted for our Supported Learning provision because of the personalised and supportive approach to the way we deliver learning. Over the past academic year, the Supported Learning department has secured paid employment for an increasing number of students both in the community and within our College. Students with learning difficulties and disabilities study a range of qualifications at the College all of which incorporate skills that prepare them for work. Areas include sport, horticulture, retail, hospitality & catering, amongst others. Job coaches work with our job ready students supporting them right through the job application process and into employment. Other successful outcomes over the past academic year include initiatives set up within the College to employ students as recycling assistants, estates assistants and in-house caterers. Speaking about the achievement, Principal Paula Whittle said We are very proud of our continuing standard of excellence and are pleased that the inspectors recognised our emphasis on personalised learning, our ability to remove barriers to education and the enthusiasm and commitment of our teachers. A wide selection of courses are delivered at the College, from pre-entry level to foundation level. The curriculum focuses upon developing the skills students need to be able to function within and contribute to society. On accredited courses, learners achieve above the national average. Progression of learners is outstanding, with many learners moving on to mainstream courses or employment. Learners enjoy their studies and make exceptional gains in confidence, communication and self-esteem. The opportunities and experience necessary to secure future employment are gained from the comprehensive employment placement scheme, paid enterprise initiatives and college job club. Well-trained and enthusiastic teachers inspire learners to achieve their goals through creative teaching. Initial and ongoing assessments are exceptionally thorough. Highly individualised approaches take into account learning needs and remove barriers to learning. Staff know learners well and provide exemplary individual support, removing any barriers to learning. Safeguarding of learners is outstanding. The promotion of equality and diversity is outstanding and an integral part of all curriculum delivery. Consultation with learners through College committees is outstanding. Their feedback informs curriculum development and extra curricular programmes. 28 wlc.ac.uk LEARNER FIRST CELEBRATING SUCCESS 29

16 CASE STUDY 6. INTERNATIONAL STUDENT CENTRE STUDENTS CAPITALISE ON NEW APPROACH TO POST-GRADUATE EDUCATION quality work experience with renowned employers Marriott Hotel Group, Gordon Ramsey Holdings, Hilton UK, D&D Group and Harrods. Highly trusted partner of the UK Border agency. 6.5 million: annual income to the college The first groups of students in the UK to graduate from a Further Education college with an MBA qualification are now celebrating their success. They are now the proud recipients of candidatures of Master of Business Administration in Hospitality Management and will be amongst the first in the country to have chosen a new and alternative route through a Further Education college to reach their career goals. The students, who are mainly from India, aim to use their qualifications to progress their careers in the Hospitality Management industry in the UK and in the rapidly developing hotel industry in India. Speaking about her experience on the course Preeti Achiari (27) from India said The MBA has helped me to improve my strategic-thinking skills, developed my leadership abilities and it has also offered me more upward job opportunities, especially management positions. Accredited by the University of Wales, the MBA in Hospitality Management focuses primarily on work-related skills with an emphasis on strategy, finance, analysis and marketing as well as managing people. Students are also offered extensive and Principal Paula Whittle says, Our international students want a British qualification because it holds gravitas abroad. The reason our international offer is so successful is because the qualification is delivered in response to demand. Employers work with us to tailor the skills they want and students find that on completion they can fit very easily into industry. Every year we are able to contribute over 30 million to the London economy through this strand of education and training so it really is mutually beneficial. Our plans for the future include using the positive feedback from current students to attract home students to our College so that they too can take advantage of what is proving to be a very attractive prospect for employers and those who want to progress in the hospitality and catering industry. The academic year for 2009/10 alone saw applications rise from 41 to 486 for the MBA and the annual income to the College increase to 6.5 million. The College also holds Highly Trusted Sponsor status from the UK Border Agency. The standard is awarded to colleges who have a proven track record of recruiting students who comply with the UK s immigration rules.
