west-london-college logo

From the Work Experience team at West London College.

We are currently sourcing unpaid Work Experience opportunities for our Level 3 Health and Social Care students. Can you help?

Our Level 3 Health and Social Care students are required to complete a 1-2 day a week placement running from mid November-July. During this time they will need to complete 350 hours of unpaid work.

These students have already completed between 1-3 years of Work Experience with the College already so are looking for a placement to help develop the skills they have already gained preparing them for employment within the industry as well as supporting their University applications.

The students who have been selected to take part in this long term placement are hardworking and committed to volunteering within the Health and Social Care sector, they will also have their full enhanced DBS check.

If you are able to accommodate our students within your business for a Work Experience placement or would like some further details please let me know.

Jigsaw Club is a drop-in ‘stay and play’ for under 5s and their parents/carers which runs on Wednesdays, 10:30-14:30 during term time at the Chelsea Methodist Church on Kings Road. It is a chance for children and adults to socialise, play and eat a lovely, freshly-prepared lunch together. Volunteers are needed to help set up activities, run the craft table, supervise and play with the children, serve lunch and pack away the toys at the end of the session. It is a wonderful place to volunteer and a fantastic opportunity for someone with experience working with children to get involved in the local community.

Interested? Contact: team@wlac.org.uk.

Emergency Response & Recovery Volunteer Team – Hammersmith & Fulham Volunteer Centre

Would you like the opportunity to support your local community in an emergency situation?

CAMERA is a new and innovative emergency response & recovery volunteer team that has launched in the London Boroughs of Camden and Hammersmith & Fulham which will enable local people, businesses and organisations to help in a time of emergency through volunteering skills and experience as well as donating goods and space. The experience of the Grenfell Tragedy has highlighted that local people want to offer their skills and experience in an emergency, but were not allowed to as there was no time to vet their skills or train them. CAMERA will enable local people who have useful skills and experience, to offer their skills in an emergency, easily. Volunteers will be fully trained and will be called upon in an emergency situation.

There are a variety of ways to get involved in the project, depending on your skills and interests. Roles we have come up with include Rest Centre Officers, Social Media Assistants, Entertainers and Donation Sorting Assistants.
