South Thames College is one of London’s leading further education colleges, offering education and training to students of all ages and backgrounds.
Our main centres are located in Wandsworth, Merton and Tooting.
The College’s Wandsworth campus has recently been extensively redeveloped, successfully integrating a beautiful Grade II listed building with the best of modern design. This has created industry standard learning facilities where students can thrive and succeed. The building has received an Access Award from Wandsworth Council.
Our Merton campus has also benefited from major investment in recent years including a brand new Technology block opened in March 2010.
Here and at all our campuses, all areas are fully accessible and classrooms are equipped with adjustable tables and appropriate IT facilities to allow learning for all.
The College offers a range of services to students ranging from advice before choosing a course, right through to financial support, advice on welfare and personal issues and careers advice. Our advice team has recently been awarded “Matrix” status. A team of Youth workers run Enrichment activities which include sports teams, themed events, trips and work experience.
A cross college “Disability Awareness Event” this year included a chance for staff and students to try sports like goal ball, wheelchair basketball and sitting volleyball as well as providing information to all about disability related issues.
A range of support is available for learners with disabilities, learning difficulties or medical conditions. We encourage learners to let us know as soon as you can if you think you may need support so we can best meet your needs.
We are committed to the active promotion of Equalities and Diversity in all areas of the College's life. Our Single Equalities Scheme and action plan takes forward our commitment in one unified document and is monitored and evaluated to ensure we are living up to our aspirations.
We welcome people with disabilities and are proud to have recently been awarded the “Positive about Disabled People” symbol demonstrating our commitments regarding recruitment, training, retention, consultation and disability awareness.
