We will send you an invitation for your online enrolment session in August. Please note we are enrolling from week commencing 17 August 2020.

On-line enrolment will take 3 easy steps.

STEP 1 – A tutor will phone at the time specified. Discuss your offer and check the conditions have been met. Give you all the information about the course and when to start. (If you have access to a camera, we can also arrange a video call via Microsoft TEAMS then you get to see the staff).

STEP 2 – Log in to your online enrolment portal. (If you haven’t already had an interview you may need to create an account first).

STEP 3 – Simply check your details, upload any evidence as discussed, such as a copy of your qualifications, accept the Terms & Conditions and confirm your enrolment.

The majority of enrolments will be done online however, we appreciate that in some cases this may not be possible. Please contact our helpline to make alternative arrangements by telephone on: 01226 216106

Once you have confirmed your enrolment, we will notify the Student Loans Company and they will start the process to release your payments as applicable.

The new term starts week commencing 21 September 2020, however due to the current Covid-19 situation we will be operating staggered start dates and times. Your tutor will provide all the details about your induction and timetable at the point of enrolment.

20/21 Academic Year term dates are available on our website.

The way we adapted to online delivery during lockdown, has given us a really good head start. In line with government guidelines for class sizes and social distancing measures, ‘blended learning’ will be the way to go, with a mixture of online delivery and practical, on-site taught sessions.  We will keep you informed of these arrangements as we move forward through the next phase. Our key priority as always is the safety and well-being of all students and staff.

Don’t worry! Tell your tutor and they will work with you to ensure that you have the necessary equipment to support your learning.
