On Friday 23 and Saturday 24 of November, West London College joined over 240 education, training and employment providers at Skills London 2018.

Anna Strzalek, Marketing Officer said:

“Every year Skills London is so inspiring to attend as an exhibitor. It’s a great opportunity to speak to students about their futures and help parents understand the options available after GCSEs and beyond. 

“It was great to see visiting students and parents taking part in our have-a-go activities at our three Get Skilled stands.”
