The aim of Enrolment is to ensure each individual student is placed on a programme of study that meets their individual needs and aspirations. Making the right course choices will enable you to progress successfully onto the next stage of your life and realise your career aims and goals.

The Enrolment Process

There are essentially 2 parts to enrolment:

Part 1

Placing students on courses for which they have the right qualifications whilst taking account of their future career goals and aspirations.

To do this:

  • You will need to attend your enrolment interview at the time indicated on the letter issued at Induction. If you have mislaid the letter, please contact the Admissions department to confirm the date and time of your appointment. You should expect to be in College for approximately 2 hours to complete this part of the enrolment process.
  • The College is required to carry out an identity check to confirm that you meet the Government’s eligibility criteria to be a student at College – Please remember to bring either your passport, birth certificate or driving licence to your interview appointment.
  • Your tutor will discuss your course choices, taking into account your examination results and career aims.
  • The College will need to check your GCSE results and other qualifications before enrolling you on to any courses – you need to bring a copy of your results which will be kept by College (including proof of Year 9/10 qualifications and GCSEs).
  • You may need to speak to other members of staff for advice and guidance about your course choices and your programme of study at College.

Part 2

The completion of paperwork - The Enrolment Form.

  • The College needs to collect information about you:
    • Some of this will be personal information - enabling us to keep you safe at College e.g. parents and GP/Doctor’s contact details.
    • Other information has to be collected and submitted, by the College, to Government agencies for funding and examination purposes. We need your help in providing this information as missing or incomplete information can cause difficulties with examination entries, publication of results and applications to Universities, other colleges and for employment.
  • An Enrolment Information Sheet was attached to your enrolment appointment letter (which also outlines what to bring to your interview). If you have mislaid the information sheet, please print another copy (see sidebar) and, with the help of your parents, complete the form and bring it to your enrolment appointment.

Life at the College

The following video was entirely made by Mina, one of our A Level Film Studies students. Mina won the Essex County Standard Award for Communications last year and is now studying Film at university. The music is by student Will Heaton, who this year moved on to study Music at university, having achieved an A* grade and a mark in the national top 1% in A Level Music Technology last summer.
