The information and activities in these welcome packs is mainly addressed to new students, but returning students are welcome to look through the pages and read through the information below for any questions you may have.
All enrolment takes place online in the comfort of your own home.
In early August, all students with an offer of a place to study with us will be emailed a 'Getting Ready for College' pack. This will contain all the instructions, forms and information you need to enrol online. As well as further guidance on how to apply for transport, financial support and when your induction will be.
As long as you have access to a device (mobile, phone, tablet or computer) and a connection to the internet (4G or wifi) you can enrol anytime from Thursday 20th August (returning students will be able to enrol earlier and will be send instructions on how to do so via email).
More FAQs and information about enrolment can be found on our ‘Enrolling at College’ page.
Due to the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 outbreak will be delivering the majority of induction online to maximise your safety. However there will be an opportunity to meet your new tutors and classmates with social distancing in place to help you settle in to College life.
Timetables will be issued on completion of your induction (please note this may change and will be confirmed when we meet).
We expect a significant proportion of your teaching and learning to still take place online for the majority of courses, and if you do have lessons on campus you can be confident that your safety and wellbeing will be paramount from the moment you leave the house to the time that you return home.
Studying Remotely via Google Classroom
We have been using G Suite for Education for over a year and it is well embedded in to our curriculum. This has allowed us to move to remote learning during the lock down confidently. G Suite allows us to teach you online or offline, anytime, and on any device to support and connect with you either one-on-one or with the whole class.
We utilise Classroom to enable us to manage your course work, assignments, and grading all in one place so you can be confident your experience is as high in quality online, as it is on campus.
You will be provided with full instructions on how to access your Google Classroom at induction and your tutors are always on hand to support you and ensure you are doing everything you should be to succeed on your course.
