The Barnet and Southgate College & Reed NCFE Employment Zone Students at Barnet and Southgate College may have the opportunity to be given a head start in their employment search thanks to an innovative collaboration with the REED NCFE Partnership. The REED NCFE initiative exclusively offers Barnet and Southgate College students access to local vacancies and jobs that are rarely advertised. They also provide tailored training in the skills you will need specifically for these jobs, to help ensure maximum employability once you have completed your studies at college.

The REED NCFE Employment Zone trains students to understand how the world of work operates; they’re taught how to think and behave in a work environment, improve their interview skills and given bespoke careers advice and work experience. The initiative responds to robust research supported by Harvard University and carried out by REED with over 2,000 UK employers. This showed that 97% of employers choose the workplace mind set as one of the key elements when employing someone. The partnership, which launched in November 2012, is currently working with 1,400 students in the College having placed over 100 students in part-time jobs and over 30 students in full-time positions, apprenticeships and work experience placements with high profile employers such as: Sports Direct, Tesco, Edenvale Care and Ocado. Being able to assist students to successfully compete in a ruthless job market is one of our key objectives as a College.

Information for parents Why college and not sixth form? Whether your son or daughter is seeking to follow an academic or vocational route, progress to higher education, enhance their job prospects or they just want to continue their education, Barnet and Southgate College will probably have a full or parttime course to suit their needs. College provides that necessary bridge to university or employment; broadening students outlook and giving them the chance to meet a new set of peers in a more mature and independent environment. It also offers a broad range of support mechanisms. Real preparation for employment Recent independent research commissioned by the Association of Colleges found that parents admit they are struggling to give the right advice to prepare young people for the world of work. The research found: •  20% of parents feel out of their depth advising their children about careers, whilst 32% say they only feel comfortable talking about jobs with which they are familiar. •  Some parents readily admit their children are ill-prepared for work, with more than 11% confessing they wouldn’t even employ their own child. •  82% of school teachers don’t feel they have the appropriate knowledge to advise pupils on careers; which is where coming to college can help. •  72% of parents think education should be more focused on preparing young people for employment and 94% of parents want their child to have more access to employers and businesses The Barnet and Southgate College REED NCFE Employment Zone has been developed with this research in mind; training students to understand how the world of work operates.

Through REED NCFE Employment Zone, students are taught how to think and behave in a work environment, improve their interview skills and given careers advice and work experience. Route to Higher Education and Professional Development Many of our courses have impressive links to local universities and the commercial sector; our central aim is to prepare students for higher education or the world of work, whilst at the same time providing a warm and friendly atmosphere in which to learn. We are one of the largest colleges in North London providing a wide range of academic and vocational courses, many of which are directly linked to local employers and universities. Our curriculum is as diverse as our students; from GCSEs and A Levels to professional qualifications and Higher Education, from foundation maths and literacy to vocational training, in everything from catering and construction, to hairdressing and motorsport. The College actively encourages and helps younger students to be independent and responsible for their own future success; receiving expert guidance on potential career options, further education and employment opportunities. Our wide range of HE and professional courses means that your child will have future progression opportunities within college if it suits them better to stay within the local, friendly environment of college rather than university. Keep in touch If your son or daughter decides to study here, do try and make sure you/ they provide us with your contact details on the application form so that we can keep you informed of their progress.

“Barnet and Southgate College offered the courses I wanted to study and offered me much more independence than I had at school. My mum wanted me to stay on at school as she thought I wasn’t capable of pushing myself but I’m in control of my own success now; the independent atmosphere has inspired me to push myself. College was the right choice for me as I feel more mature and one day I hope to be an investment banker or stock broker in the City.” Rico Craigie A Level in English and AS Levels in Film Studies and Sociology

“I finished school in Poland when I was 19 and I came back to studying at 24, after I moved to the UK. I completed an ESOL course and then went onto an IT Multimedia and Accounting AAT part-time course. I didn’t speak any English and now I’m almost fluent! I’m so happy to be at college as there are so many opportunities open to me now and I can fit my studies in with being a busy mum and wife. One day I hope to be an accountant or bookkeeper.” Dominica Tober AAT Diploma in Accounting, Level 3

“I was playing semi-professional football for a local team and that was my passion but then I injured my knee and had to explore other avenues. I knew I loved cooking so that’s the career I chose. I came along to an Open Day at the Southgate Campus and was really impressed with the catering facilities so I decided to enrol. The course has been amazing! Next year I’m going to Spain for 5 weeks working in a Spanish college and then in a Spanish restaurant. I can’t wait as everything is paid for as it is part of my course. The atmosphere in college compared to school is much better suited to me. I never really wanted to pursue an academic career, as I’m more of a practical person and I know I’ll be more successful in a career in catering.” Ashley Francis Chef’s Diploma, Level 2

“From a young age I’ve been interested in carpentry, and after reading reviews online, Barnet and Southgate College seemed to have the most positive feedback for the course I wanted to study. It was strange being the only woman in the class and at first I was worried but the tutor was very accommodating and didn’t make me feel any different. The College has really exceeded my expectations allowing me to gain more confidence in my field of study. In the future I’d like to see myself as a business owner in the carpentry field. I have no limits with what I want to do and coming to college has helped me set my goals for the future.” Deandre Blake Carpentry and Joinery Diploma, Level 3

“The course at the Wood Street Campus is great and the facilities are amazing. My course includes subjects such as 3D animation and game designing. I’ve always been interested in game design and computer based work since I was at school. With my qualifications, I’m hoping to go onto university and then get into the animation industry. However, I’m also studying to become a personal trainer at the College, so my future may include mixing the two together! ” Payam Laloui BTEC Diploma in Computer Animation Games and Web Design, Level 3

“I’m originally from Afghanistan and when I came to the UK I knew that I had to improve my English as I wanted to study at university here. I found out about the ESOL course on the College website and I came along to one of the College Open Days at the Grahame Park Campus. It’s near to where I live and I wanted to find out more about the course and what I needed to do to enrol. Everyone was really helpful and I registered my interest that day. I love my course and coming to college and I enjoy studying and improving my English. ” Noorullah Ahmadzai ESOL Entry Level 3

“I’ve just started at Barnet and Southgate College this year. I was looking for an entry level course as I didn’t get many qualifications at school or college when I was younger. I struggled to help my children with their homework from school, so I wanted to get onto a course that would help me with my own literacy and numeracy skills. I’ve found the course really enjoyable so far and the teaching is excellent because the way you are taught is very clear and interesting. Everything is explained in detail and there is never any confusion. I’ve learnt so much already and I look forward to learning more.” Jasmine Kwai Lan Lee Literacy and Numeracy Level 1

“I’d love to have my own business and own a salon one day. The teaching and training at Barnet and Southgate College is excellent and so supportive. I’m originally from Iran and I needed to improve my language skills. The teachers helped me to enrol on the English course that I needed to be able to progress to Beauty at Level 3 and 4. I’ve made so many new friends and know that with my training from the College I’ll be fully confident to run my own beauty salon in the future. I can’t wait!” Sepidah Vashani Beauty Therapy Diploma, Level 2

“I wasn’t sure what to do after school, but then I found out about the Health and Social Care BTEC online. My course is the equivalent of doing 3.5 A-Levels. I enjoy getting the coursework done as the teaching is great and you get a lot of support. I’ve made lots of new friends from different backgrounds as it’s a diverse and welcoming college. I also enjoy the independence as it really makes you want to study and afterwards I want to go onto university to train as a midwife or nurse.” Sara Musallam BTEC National Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care, Level 3

“I’m the only girl on the course, but it doesn’t bother me as the teaching staff treat me exactly the same as the boys. I’ve been interested in cars for a few years so applying for the course seemed like a natural choice. The course has plenty of academic and theory work with the right balance of practical work. Barnet and Southgate College was the right choice for me as it’s the only college local to me that runs a BTEC in Motorsport. It’s a lot more easy going here compared to school, and you’re a lot more independent, which works for me as I find it really motivating.” Samantha Bowden BTEC in Motorsport, Level 3

“I was playing professional football for a team in Germany, but my contract ended and I had to come back to the UK and continue my education. I‘ve always been interested in the subject as I used to perform in my local church. College is great, the teachers treat you like adults and they respect you. My course has brought out the best in me and has made me feel more independent. The atmosphere is really friendly; your opinion counts and people take notice of what you say – at school you don’t really have the chance to have an opinion. I’m going to finish my BTEC in Performing Arts, then go onto Middlesex University and complete a degree. It’s great that the College already has links with them so it should be a straightforward move.” Andy Bolikango Performing Arts Extended Diploma, Level 3

“I chose Barnet and Southgate College as it offers a great variety of courses. I am currently studying for a BTEC National Extended Diploma in Applied Science. With the help of the College I would love to go to university and become a Dentist, although this course has given me more options. I would love a job where I can help people with their health. The College provides a great environment to learn in with very helpful course tutors. If you’re planning to come and study here, you’ll be given a lot of support and the motivation to succeed. The College has prepared me for the next step into education and I am ready to accept the challenge.” Enea Zharri BTEC National Extended Diploma in Applied Science, Level 3

“I applied for the course as I was interested in athletics and I hope to become an athletics coach. I love college life as you get to meet other people that are interested in what you are studying and you get to choose what course you want to progress onto. It’s much more practical than school. There’s always something within the course that interests me, including the theory and practical elements of the sport. The teaching is great as staff make sure you’re up to date with the work that has been set and they don’t let you fall behind. They really help motivate us. In the next five years I would hope to see myself coaching people with disabilities within athletics and my dream job is to welcome people to sports and athletics, so I’d love to become a full time coach.” Chloe Chaldecott BTEC Diploma in Sport, Level 3

Then I found out about the Performing Arts course at Barnet and Southgate College and I knew it would be much better suited to me and my interests. You really are supported by the tutors here as they give you the confidence to do things. At my old college there was only one teacher for the whole class but here there are small teams of staff for each class. That’s really good support.” Vijay Negi, Performing Arts, Entry Level 3-Level 1

HOW MUCH WILL MY COURSE COST FOR 2014/2015? Financial Support

24+ Advanced Learning Loans

Fee-Status Assessment

Please note the following information provided on fees and financial support is subject to change for 2014-2015.

Aged 24 or over and thinking about further education? You may qualify for a 24+ Advanced Learning Loan. These loans help you to pay your tuition fees charged. Most learners aged 24 and over, studying at Level 3 and above, will qualify for these new loans from the UK government. It’s easy to apply, your household income isn’t taken into account and there’s no credit check. You won’t have to pay anything back until your income is over £21,000 a year. To qualify you must be: •  Aged 24 or over on the first day of your course (there’s no upper age-limit). •  Living in the UK on the first day of your course and have lived in the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man for three years immediately before this. •  Studying with a college or training organisation in England approved for public funding. •  Enrolling on an eligible course at Level 3 and above which includes: A Levels, Access to HE Diplomas, other Diplomas and Certificates, Advanced Apprenticeships or Higher Apprenticeships. Applying is easy If you are aged 24+ and would like to apply for a course, further information about fees and the payment options, including how to apply for a 24+ Advanced Learning Loan will be sent to you upon receipt of your application or enquiry. Further information is available on the College website, or www.direct.gov. uk/advancedlearningloans You will be able to download an application form from these two sources. UK/EEA Students The amount you pay will depend both on your circumstances and the course you are wanting to study. The full cost of your course will be the course’s tuition fees plus its examination fees and a College registration fee where this applies. For some courses you will also be required to cover additional costs, e.g. for materials.

When you come in for your interview you will be assessed as to what fee you will have to pay and whether you meet criteria for waived tuition and examination fees. If you would like advice about whether you might be entitled to any waived fees, please speak to one of our Customer Services staff or email info@barnetsouthgate.ac.uk. If you find you are not entitled to any waived fees but think you might be eligible for possible financial assistance to help pay for your course please speak to one of our Customer Services staff, email supportfund@ barnetsouthgate.ac.uk or download an appropriate form from our website.

16-18s Full and part-time students aged 16–18 on 31st August 2014 and resident in the EU for the last three years are exempt from tuition fees on all full time courses but will have to pay for material fees if applicable. Fees will apply to exam resits and non-attendance at examinations.

19 and over If you are 19 or above on 31st August 2014 a tuition fee will need to be paid, in addition to any materials costs. Tuition fees may be waived if you are in receipt of means tested benefits, or if you are a dependant on those receiving benefits. Your tuition fees may also be remitted if you have elected to undertake your first full Level 2 (ages 19-23) or Level 3 qualification (ages 19-23). The materials charges vary according to the course you apply for, and cover items such as equipment, protective clothing and art materials. Fees will apply to exam resits and non-attendance at examinations.

Learner Support Fund The Learner Support Fund is for learners in further education in financial hardship. Learners aged 19 and over on the 31st August 2014 who are in receipt of means tested or disability benefits can apply for funds to help pay for course-related expenses such as childcare and travel. It is advisable to apply early, especially for childcare support, because funds are limited and do run out quickly. Application packs for the Learner Support Fund are available at every College campus; please see a member of the Customer Services Team.

16-19 Bursary Scheme You could be eligible for up to £1,200 in support to help with travel, meals, field trips and materials. Please go to the College website to download an application form.
