Work for us

Based in the centre of Livingston in the heart of Scotland's central belt between Glasgow and Edinburgh- West Lothian College offers a wide range of further and higher education courses to more than 8,000 students each year.

The college's vision is to develop a highly skilled, enterprising and resilient workforce.

What, Why and How?

The college's visions are clear- and four strategic goals have been identified to achieve that vision, reinforcing the three values that will underpin how we do that.

At West Lothian College, our vision is to deliver a highly skilled, enterprising and resilient workforce, embedded with our commitment to ignite a lifelong passion for learning, and equip our students with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in today's rapidly revolving world.

Our four strategic goals:

  • 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

Our three values:

  • 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
