Enrolment Information

We hope that your studies at North Lindsey College will be happy, interesting and
successful.

Welcome

The first step is enrolment. If you have been offered and accepted your place, you will receive your enrolment invitation in the post at the beginning of August.

Your enrolment invitation will give you the key information you need to know and what date and time your enrolment session is. Please keep this in a safe place and bring it with you to  enrolment, along with the items on the Enrolment Checklist.

Enrolment is designed to ensure that you enrol onto the correct programme of study that best meets your individual needs. Your programme of study will also include tutorial sessions as well as progression and development weeks. You will also have the opportunity, as appropriate to your studies to undertake a range of other activities to develop your skills including problem solving, employability (including work experience) and personal and social development.

English and mathematics are essential qualifications. If you are aged 16-18 and have not achieved a GCSE grade 4/C or above in either subject you must continue to work towards that subject. This is a mandatory requirement of enrolment.

If you have any questions or any concerns, please let a member of staff know. We are all here to help you. If for any reason your examination results are different from what you expected or you are thinking about changing the course you have applied for, don’t worry. It is our priority to enrol you onto the courses which are right for you.
