About West Lothian College

Provider Avatar

West Lothian College, based in Livingston, offers a wide range of further and higher education courses to over 8,000 students each year. The college's vision is to develop a highly skilled, enterprising and resilient workforce.

Over the past few months we have refreshed our vision, identified four strategic goals to achieve that vision, and reinforced the three values that will underpin how we do that.

Our vision, our WHY, is of a highly skilled, enterprising and resilient workforce.

Four strategic goals, our WHAT, help us achieve that vision:

  • Inspiring and enabling success for all means providing opportunities for education and training that help people take a step towards their ambition
  • Supporting economic recovery and growth is about how we help employers survive the current crisis and come out of it ready and able to take advantage of new opportunities
  • Strengthening our communities involves working with others to ensure local people benefit from education and jobs
  • Leading with vision and empathy is about how we adapt to a volatile, uncertain and complex world and how we care for our students, staff and partners

Three values, our HOW, underpin our approaches to all that we do:

  • Being welcoming to all means we embrace equality, diversity and inclusion
  • Students at the centre of everything we do is exactly that
  • Always striving for better sums up our commitment to continuous improvement
