Waltham Forest College

Waltham Forest College is one of London’s most successful Colleges and in February 2018 Ofsted judged the College to be ‘Good’ in all areas. Our mission is to deliver outstanding teaching, learning and support to meet the needs of individuals, and inspire our students to develop the high-quality skills they need to be successful in their future lives. We are now in a better position to meet the needs of our very diverse community, including those students with high needs or from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The College prides itself on placing the needs of students and of the local community firmly at its centre. Raising the aspirations of students and staff is central to the strategy for improvement and is now well embedded in the College.  We are committed to meet local skill priorities, equipping people with the skills they need to integrate and function successfully within their community. 

Waltham Forest College is proud to be crowned the number one London College for learner and employer satisfaction and now ranks in the top 3% of overall Further Education colleges in the UK. The College recently celebrated its eighty-year anniversary and continues to provide London with a workforce that closes the skills gap across various industrial and professional sectors.
