2. Interview

You will be invited to attend an interview with the course tutor, or we can interview you in school, if you prefer. The course will be explained to you and we will discuss your predicted GCSE grades.

3. Offer

You will be told if you have received a place to study with us.

4. Sample Sessions & Welcome Days

We will let you know about sample sessions and student welcome days so you can try out the course.

Don’t worry if you change your mind and would like to study another course. We want you to do what is best for you!

5. Enrol on GCSE Results Day

You will enrol on to your course on GCSE results day. You will need to bring your results and photographic proof of ID (driving licence, passport or birth certificate).

If you haven’t got your grades, don’t panic! Speak to our tutors and they will be able to advise you.

You will receive your ID badge and all the information you need for your first day.
