Countdown to Enrolment 2021
Once you have applied to the college and have received a conditional offer of a place from us, you are well on your way to becoming a Blackpool Sixth student. The final steps you need to take to join us are outlined below together with some key dates. Please contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions about enrolment which are not covered here.
Pre-enrolment: from May onwards
We are asking all applicants to log into their application here to check their contact details. It is vitally important that we have your up-to-date email address and phone number as we will use these to communicate with you about enrolment and supply you with log-in details. You will be able to change these (if needed). Please also check your proposed courses and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to change any of your course options. There will be another opportunity at a later stage to change your course options, if there is a need to do so.
In late June and early July we will have our New Student events (online and, we hope, onsite as well). With this in mind please consider the GCSE grades you think you will achieve and whether you might need to consider any alternative courses as a back-up plan. The New Student events will give you a chance to research this.
Enrolment Stage 1 : 30th June to 6th July
During this period we will be asking you to upload a photo for your college membership card and evidence of your identity on to our enrolment portal. You will receive details of how to do this closer to the time. We are planning to provide you with the chance to have a photo taken and uploaded at the New Student Open Day on Saturday 3rd July. You will also be able to let us know if want to change your course choices.
Completing these pre-enrolment tasks will help ensure that your enrolment to college goes as smoothly and as swiftly as possible.
Enrolment Stage 2: August 12th/13th/16th
Once you receive your GCSE (and other qualification) results from your school on Thursday 12th August, we need you to upload these on to our enrolment portal. It is important you do this as quickly as possible so that we can move you to the next stage in the enrolment process.
If your results are at or above the minimum entry requirements for the study programme and individual courses you wish to take, then we will be able to complete your enrolment. You will receive email confirmation of your enrolment and a follow-up telephone call before you start with us, just to check that everything is OK.
If you need to adjust your programme as a result of your grades or because you have changed your mind, then we will arrange a discussion with you to do this. We will contact you to set this up. In most cases, this will be over the phone with one of our enrolment advisors. In some cases, we may need you to come into college for your discussion. We will do our best to fit in this discussion by the end of 16th August, however, we may need a little more time to arrange this so that we can involve the most appropriate staff members to help you. Don’t worry if things take a little longer, the most important thing is that we make sure that you select the right study programme and courses for your future.
Please note that the timetable for enrolment has been adjusted as a result of the national changes to when GCSE results will be issued. The previous date given for our enrolment to start was 27th August. This has been brought forward to 12th August. We will aim to complete the vast majority of enrolments by 16th August. As mentioned above, there may be a need in some cases for enrolment discussions to take place during the last two weeks in August and possibly into September. However, the timing of any discussion appointments after 16th August will be agreed with individual applicants.
Induction Days: 7th September to 10th September
Once your enrolment is completed, you will be all set to start college. You will be invited to one of our induction days which will be held on 7th – 10th September. On this day you will meet your Pastoral Mentor who will guide you through a programme of activities to help you settle into college.
From Monday 13th September you will begin your full timetable.
