Employability’ Skills

At The College of North West London, your teachers will not only help you develop knowledge and understanding, first and foremost they will help you develop skills that employers tell us that they value, as much as your qualification, and this is why we place great importance on you developing these ‘employability’ skills, which also include English and Mathematics. We will help you develop and apply English and Maths skills, no matter what you are studying.
