Forget paper forms and queuing… This year, we’re launching our new online enrolment process. From Thursday 20th August (16-18 year old learners) or Tuesday 1st September (19+ adult learners), you can log in to the application portal to enrol on your course. 

Here’s how it will work:

  • How will my induction work and when will I get my timetable?

    Part of keeping the College COVID-secure has involved splitting classes into distinct groups or ‘bubbles’. Any full time learners who have already applied/enrolled should have received a text message with the details of their induction day. Please note that the groups have been separated this way for your safety and we are unable to make changes to them.

    Adult learners and those set to enrol on part time courses will also receive their induction information in the coming week. Please bear with us during this busy time and rest assured that we will be in touch to invite you in for your induction as soon as possible.

    On your induction day, you will be greeted at reception by your tutor. They will escort you to your classroom and introduce you to some of your classmates. You will be shown around the College and your tutor will share your timetable and introduce you to your virtual learning environment, as well as explain how you will learn during your first term at college.
