Located in Hayes, our Stables Court Yard campus (a beautiful Grade II-listed building) is surrounded by many of the local amenities; all of which we like to access and integrate into our session plans, in order to expose our students to the community environment; whilst maintaining a specialised and safe level of support.
Accommodating 25 students, the area is also well connected to local public transport, with central London a simple train ride away. Having one of the world’s leading capital cities on our doorstep means that the students are often in the privileged position of being able to suggest, plan and participate in life enhancing excursions, with community access proving to be an invaluable session on the college timetable.
Progress made by students at WLCC is closely monitored by session facilitators and key workers alike, to ensure that each individual maximises their potential whilst in our care.
Although the majority of our timetabled sessions are facilitated by an experienced group of Vocational Training Officers, we also offer the students’ various therapies delivered by a hand-picked team of trained professionals.
These sessions include; speech and language, occupational therapy and counselling, and are designed to help the students develop coping strategies and improve communication techniques, as well as providing a safe forum in which to express themselves.
