This week, communication has gone out to all Nelson & Colne/Accrington & Rossendale College Applicants with a bespoke link to their individual course (choice 1) that they have applied for

A sample screenshot of the E-Comm is shown below.

We have also asked for a survey to be completed by parents/applicants:

Nelson & Colne survey : http://createsend.com/t/j-3115A7E3FAA6198B2540EF23F30FEDED

Accrington & Rossendale Survey: http://createsend.com/t/j-C0534D32D7E8BE992540EF23F30FEDED

Bespoke links for applicants.

Once applicants click on their individual link – they will be able to:

  • Watch the Principals welcome video
  • Access “college life” info, including bus routes, bus passes, financial support, additional learning support info, 3D maps of their campus and info on college facilities, careers  advice and extra-curricular info.
  • Access interactive activities/resources for their subject area and watch a video from the department head
  • Begin their enrolment process. They will be able to check course info, contact details we hold, upload their photo for their student ID and enter any previous qualifications

Please ask applicants to ensure they check their junk mail/spam mailbox and ensure they have updated their contact details to ensure they do not miss out on any future communication. A lot of applicants still have their school email as our primary contact and this should be changed to a personal one before they lose access to their school email.

Results day & Enrolment

Over the next few weeks, applicants will be sent joining instructions to prepare them for results day in the post and via email. All enrolment will be online –  learners will not enrol in college unless they have a specific learning need or have no access to ICT facilities.

All applicants can begin enrolment now via the link provided.  On results day they will simply log back in and then enter their grades and upload evidence of their results. A member of the curriculum team will then get in touch to confirm grades/entry requirements have been met  – and give information on induction week, start date, timetables, kit, equipment required etc

We will update you on our plans for results day soon with information on support and advice available from the school liaison team once plans have been finalised. This is likely to be remote assistance pending government restrictions.
