Leyton Sixth Form College

The Award for FE Team of the Year


Education, Leisure and Wellbeing is a vocational area comprising of Travel and Tourism, Sport, Health and Social Care and Early Years. The area prides itself on providing high quality teaching and learning, industry skills and gold standard placements to students.

The area has made significant progress on developing its identity as a collective team, given that it is composed of four rather loosely connected subject areas and 18 members of staff. The team is rich with experience: with a collective 200 years of teaching and first-hand knowledge of 20 different sectors.

ELW prides itself on flying the flag for vocational education in the Sixth Form College sector. They are avid networkers and have built deep and sustainable links between the college and the local community through some exciting and innovative partnerships.
