West Thames College
West Thames College
West Thames College has two campuses – our main campus in Isleworth and our Skills + Logistics Centre in Feltham. We offer a wide range of vocational BTEC courses from Sport, ICT and Catering to Business, Dance, Hairdressing and more. Whatever your interest we have the course to suit you! Our courses start at Level 1 (if you have no GCSEs) up to Level 3 (equivalent of completing 3 A Levels and an alternative route to university).
The college boasts state-of-the-art facilities and workshops that you would expect to find in the work place including hair, beauty and makeup salons, training kitchens, recording studio, a theatre and dance studios, engineering workshop and more. A rebuild of our Isleworth campus was completed in 2012 and our Skills + Logistic Centre underwent a £3 million building project including constructing a new purpose built logistics centre and workshops which officially opened in May 2016.
We also offer a number of apprenticeships including Business, Hair and Beauty, Construction, Catering, Motor Vehicle Mechanics, Media and Health and Care – perfect if you want to earn as you learn.
Applications for courses can be made through our website or by requesting a paper application form. Applications are open from October to the end of July.
West Thames College has excellent transport links and both campuses are easily accessible. Trains from Staines to Isleworth station take approximately 20 minutes and trains from Staines to Feltham approximately 10 minutes. Alternatively the 117 bus from Staines stops directly outside the Isleworth campus with a journey time of approximately 1 hour or stops on Feltham high street (a 15 minute walk to the Skills + Logistics Centre) with a journey time of approximately 35 minutes.
