Admissions enquiries

The Education Liaison Service team receives and manages all enquiries about admissions to the college. A prospectus is sent out with details of forthcoming College Open Days.

Upon receipt of a formal application from parents, supported by the student's Connexions Personal Adviser, the application is reviewed. If appropriate a placement visit or an outreach visit is arranged.

The placement visit usually takes place over 2 days and includes overnight stays for young people referred for residential placements. Following the visit, a written multi-disciplinary funding application is produced, showing the prospective student's needs with recommendations concerning the level of staff and non-staff input, required to support the student's placement.

Wherever possible, the parents and student are advised of the panel's decision within two weeks in writing following the placement visit.
