Full time Courses & Apprenticeships Applications
Please note: Once we have received your full application, we will invite you into College for an interview, where you will find out more about the College and meet with the course tutor. This meeting is important in making sure the course is the right programme for you. If you are new to a subject area, you may be advised to start on a Level 1 or 2 course. You are welcome to come to the interview with your parents/ carers/ friends. The College may request a reference from your school or previous employer. If you are in Year 11 and applying for a full-time course, the final decision about what course you will go on will be taken after GCSE Results Day at Enrolment Day at the end of August/ beginning of September.
