Welcome to Havering Adult College – proving it’s never too late for over half a century! Time is such an important thing, isn’t it? Whether you’re a parent, or you’re trying to find a new career, or perhaps you’ve recently retired and suddenly find yourself with more time on your hands than you expected. Whatever the reason, time is so important to us all. You’re possibly speed-reading this inbetween other tasks! But take a moment, breathe, and consider what you want. Havering Adult College offers so many opportunities, and our courses are planned to fit around, and compliment, your lifestyle. It’s never too late to consider a change of pace, of direction; it’s never too late to explore new interests and skills, meet new people within your communities and appreciate your own ability to learn something new. Give yourself a chance, and see what we have to offer. Our team have worked very hard to provide so many courses that can stimulate your curiosity, expand your horizons or help you improve your life chances. Perhaps you’re looking for a course to help with your job prospects – ranging from counselling to teaching assistants, sugarcraft to floristry, or filmmaking to interior design, digital music production, photography or even learning to cook. Perhaps you are looking for ways to develop your wider skills, such as learning a new language, keeping fit, exploring your creativity with watercolour painting, improving your computer skills, nurturing your confidence as a parent, British Sign Language, or embracing new ideas, such as meditation and psychic development, or even uncovering many of the secret histories of London itself. I’m proud of how hard our curriculum team have worked to put together a terrific range of courses that not only reflect our local and national priorities, but also respond to the requests of the local community – namely, you! But we offer so much more besides the few lines I’m writing here. For example: Getting You Back To Work – our Adult College Employability Training (ACET) team have worked with the local JobCentres to produce a range of free opportunities to support you in returning to work. Praised by Ofsted, our team can also provide tailor-made individual support packages. Education 4 Independence – We have a long and successful history of working with learners with a range of learning difficulties and disabilities, and our E4I team are dedicated to increasing life chances, helping them work towards independence. Delivering nationally recognised qualifications to broaden horizons, we are always delighted to welcome new learners. Teacher Training – Ever considered taking your skills, knowledge or hobbies and turning it into a new income? Perhaps others would like to learn something you can teach? Havering Adult College has an excellent teacher training department that welcomes people with no experience as much as those looking for career development. Offering courses at levels 3, 4 and 5, there’ll be something to suit your situation and needs. You are close to embarking on the most rewarding of experiences, and I trust that everyone you meet along the way will do all they can to help you. We’ve even managed to keep many prices as low as last year – and for many of our bigger courses, there are a range of payment options to make taking part as easy as possible. For more information on this, please take a moment to read our fee information and our all-important Terms & Conditions, which can be found at the back of this prospectus or on our website, and if you have any questions, our friendly team are happy to help. This prospectus is just the beginning for you – have a look, invite your friends; it’s never too late to try something new.

Here are a few… Kitchen Social – Family Cook and Eat Family Learning are delivering free workshops over holiday periods when schools are out to provide hot meals and learning opportunities for families who are from disadvantaged backgrounds and who would otherwise be experiencing hunger and social isolation. The Family Cook and Eat programme is working in line with the Mayor’s Fund for London’s programme, Kitchen Social. It has provided workshops for parents to come together with their children to participate in seasonal themed crafts, learn about different types of food and work together to prepare and cook a meal for their family. All families participating in the workshops sit and eat their meals together whilst enjoying the company of other families. The programme is providing support for families who are on a low income, and whose children would be missing out on a free school meal over the holidays.

The workshops provide the opportunity for the fathers to learn the importance of reading, making books fun and bringing them to life. Each workshop includes a family visitation where partners and children visit the prison to spend time together as a family and to give the children the opportunities of spending time with the fathers that they are not having at home.

Our BSL courses range from Level 1 to Level 3. All courses that are five weeks or longer require a pre-course interview (IAG) where you will discuss with the teacher your reasons for wanting to join and what you want to achieve.

Spanish Art Appreciation Journey through Spanish art since the cave paintings of Altamira until modern times, including Islamic art (Alhambra of Granada, mosque of Cordoba, etc.), the masters of the Baroque (El Greco, Zurbarán, Velázquez, Goya) and the modern celebs (the Picassos, Dalis and Gaudíes). There would be a strong element of Spanish history, to help understand the reasoning, styles and motivations behind the works; and an emphasis on ‘reading’ paintings, to understand their iconography, recognize different styles and understand what makes them unique and important. Some Spanish terms would also be learned.

Never too late to pass your skills on

Teacher Training Do you have a specialist subject, interest or hobby? Ever considered passing this on to a new generation? Havering Adult College offers the most competitively priced range of classroom-based professional teacher training programmes in the region, and continues to attract applicants from across, and even outside of, London. The courses empower both new and experienced teachers to engage with concepts of sequential planning, embedding equality, integrating and developing English & maths skills, planning to incorporate stretch and challenge, as well as creating a vibrant networking group that can share and nurture best practice that both enhances the skills and knowledge of the participants, as well as equipping the teachers to ensure their own learners get the best possible experiences. We offer the Certificate in Education & Training (CET) at Level 4, and the two-year Diploma in Education and Training (DET), which is delivered at Level 5. These courses do require you to be working as a teacher in secondary, further or higher education (in a paid or voluntary capacity), or within a private training provider. In addition, we offer the Award in Education & Training (Level 3), which is designed for those with little or no experience in teaching, just to test the water, and begin the journey into one of the most rewarding professions there is. Call us on 01708 554016 for an application form, and to arrange a pre-course interview.

“The learning journey overall has been excellent. I learned and gained an understanding of the importance of devising detailed session plans and how much a teacher is required to undertake beyond ‘teaching’.” - Diploma (Year 1) 46

Mission Statement

Equality & Diversity

Havering Adult College exists to provide high quality learning opportunities for those living in and around the London Borough of Havering, to support them to reconnect with education.

Havering Adult College will offer an environment and curriculum that is inclusive for the community and all learners accessing the College. We will treat everyone as individuals and celebrate the diversity this brings to the College, in the development and promotion of an inclusive and harmonious learning environment.

Havering Adult College strives to use the financial resources available to identify and encourage those harder to reach learners into education or employment. In addition, the College is committed to the love of learning, and the promotion of new learning opportunities for all. To achieve this, the College promises to: •

Offer a range of courses that will provide residents and other customers with the chance to develop the skills, confidence and knowledge to achieve qualifications and experience to enter work, and succeed as a valuable contributor to society and the economy Offer a range of courses that will nurture and develop a wider set of skills that can empower residents and other customers to grow as individuals, keeping their minds and bodies active, challenge pre-conceptions and support the ethos of lifelong learning Listen to the needs of individuals and groups, such as employers, Children’s Centres, JobCentres and other Council departments, and where resources permit, provide responsive courses to fulfil their needs Work with, and extend, the range of external partners used to increase the potential for participation in specialist areas of learning that the College would otherwise be unable to provide

The College acknowledges that learners join programmes for a number of reasons whether this is social and community, economic, as part of a cultural experience or to gain life skills. As such, the curriculum planning will embed equality and diversity throughout, whether this is through resources, direct delivery or the curriculum itself, ensuring it is fit for purpose and understanding that the ‘one size fits all’ approach is not appropriate in today’s changing communities. The College’s Management Team will continuously monitor and evaluate the impact of practices ensuring that there are no gaps in achievement for any particular group of learners. The College will actively look to widen participation into areas of the community who have not previously engaged with the provision by ensuring that we use mechanisms to determine learner demand and whether any barriers exist in accessing these courses. If barriers do exist, then we will aim to remove or reduce these as quickly as possible.

Havering Adult College values diversity and, as a leader in lifelong learning, will work to ensure there is equality of opportunity for all, whilst protecting our staff and learners from harm, and the risk of radicalisation, through our well-established procedures for safeguarding all.

Equality and Diversity Action Plan Outcomes 2014-2018 Whilst at all times we are ensuring that anyone who wants to access our provision has the ability to do so, gaps in participation and attainment have been analysed and as such the following action points have been identified as priority:

Prevent Strategy What is the Prevent Strategy? Prevent is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorist or extremist causes. The Prevent strategy covers all types of terrorism and extremism, including the extreme right wing, violent Islamist groups, animal rights extremists and other causes. How does the Prevent strategy apply to Havering Adult College? From July 2015 all educational providers and schools (as well as other organisations) have a duty to safeguard children, young people and adults from radicalisation and extremism. This means we have a responsibility to protect our learners and others from extremist and violent views the same way we protect them from any safeguarding concerns. The College can provide a safe place for learners to discuss these, and any other issues, so they better understand how to protect themselves and others.

KEY TERMS Extremism - vocal or active opposition to fundamental British values such as democracy, the rule of law and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.

To increase the take up of support by male learners To ensure that all staff have an awareness and suitable knowledge to assist those with mental health issues Ensure the College’s population reflects the ever-changing diverse nature of the wider community. This is to be achieved by engaging with a range of stakeholders who will aid us in ensuring the curriculum reflects the needs and interests for maximum participation

The PREVENT Strategy - What is it? How does it affect me?

What does this mean in practice? Many of the things we already do in our courses help our learners to be more confident, positive and more engaged in society, also contribute to the Prevent strategy.

How does Prevent relate to British values? Schools and colleges have been required to promote British Values since 2014 and this will continue to be part of our response to the Prevent strategy.

These include: • Exploring other cultures and religions and promoting diversity • Challenging prejudices and racist comments • Developing critical thinking skills and a strong, positive self-identity • Promoting the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of learners, as well as British values such as democracy

British values include: • Democracy • The rule of law • Individual liberty and mutual respect • Tolerance of different faiths and beliefs

We will also protect our learners from the risk of radicalisation, for example by vetting all staff who work at the College prior to their commencement of work; ensuring all staff are trained in Safeguarding and the Prevent Duty; learners and staff encouraged to challenge views and behaviours that are inappropriate; raise awareness of Safeguarding and Prevent Duty with all learners and staff working at Havering Adult College.

Is extremism really a risk in our area? Extremism can take many forms, including political, religious and misogynistic extremism. Some of these may be a bigger threat in our area than others. Given the local demography, Havering is presently considered a low risk of radicalisation, but it is acknowledged that it can often be in areas of perceived low risk that the potential for the development of extremist narratives and fundamentalist views can be introduced. The level of risk does not determine the level of vigilance.

All educational establishments will carry out the Prevent Duty in different ways, depending on the age and background of learners and the needs of the community.

The Prevent strategy is not just about discussing extremism itself, it is also about promoting values in learners such as tolerance and mutual respect.

Ideology - a set of beliefs. Terrorism - a violent action against people or property, designed to create fear and advance a political, religious or ideological cause. Radicalisation - the process by which a person comes to support extremism and terrorism.

Inclusive Learning Support Havering Adult College is committed to providing all learners with a wide range of high quality courses to help enhance their prospects, aspirations, health and wellbeing. Courses are held in various venues throughout the community to ease access to our services. Our Inclusive Learning policy outlines the steps we take to ensure that we offer an inclusive learning environment for all our learners. Our aim is to offer appropriate support and assistance as and when necessary for learners with disabilities or other long term health issues. When you complete your Enrolment Form you will be asked if you have a disability, health or any other learning needs that we should be aware of. By making this declaration we will be aware of your needs and a staff member from inclusive learning will contact you to identify what support you require and how we can assist you. We will also enquire if we can notify the teacher, on your behalf, to ensure your learning needs are met from the beginning of the course. Havering Adult College has a duty under the Equality Act 2010 to ensure that inclusive learning takes place, which we take very seriously. There are a variety of ways we can assist you to meet your learning goals. This could include help with: • • • • • • •

Fees & College Information Fees and Administration Charge The fee for each course is shown in the course details section. There are potentially three fees in all: a standard full fee, a 60+ fee and a concessionary fee, but please note not all courses have a reduced fee. Your fees include a contribution towards the examination costs where required, and the college administration charge of £3. Early Bird Discount A 10% early bird discount is available on all enrolments where fees are paid in full by 30th September 2017. Usually, this cannot be claimed in conjunction with other special offers. Our team will be happy to help you with this. Concessionary Fees You may be eligible to concessions on some courses if you are in receipt of active work-related benefits at the time the course starts. This is subject to you producing the required evidence at the point of enrolling, and the College reserves the right to confirm this is still active when the course starts. It is your responsibility to inform the College if your circumstances change in year, and you are no longer entitled to a free or reduced rate course. The College reserves the right to invoice you for the balance of fees outstanding as of that point. Young Language Learning Fees We offer alternative discounts for Young Language Learning courses. There are various payment options. Full details are available on page 40. Terms and conditions apply. 16-18 Year Old Learners’ Fee Our courses are funded for 19+ only through the Education and Skills Funding Agency. As such, learners aged 16-18 years old may be required to pay an enhanced fee. For more information, please contact our team on 01708 434955 (select option 1 then option 1 again).

Instalments Instalments are available on courses with fees of £150 and over (excluding E4I courses funded through Local Authority Direct Payments). A 10% surcharge applies when choosing this option. Early Bird discounts cannot apply when paying by instalments. Please remember, if you withdraw from a course before you have completed, you will be liable to pay the full remaining fee amount owed. Havering Adult College reserves the right to cease assessing learners’ work in the event they default in their payments until such time as the outstanding balance is then paid. 19+ Advanced Learner Loans If you are enrolling onto a full Level 3, 4 or 5 course (not a unit or Award) and you are 19 years old or over, you may be eligible for a loan from the Student Loans Company. Further details are available on page 52, and the Havering Adult College website. Please remember, if you withdraw from a course before you have completed, you will become immediately liable to pay the remaining fee amount owed to the College, as well as anything owed on the loan to the Student Loan Company. Examination Fees The College subsidises the examination and assessment fees by making a contribution towards the cost. Re-sit Fees If it is necessary for you to re-sit all or part of your exam, you will be required to pay for this, as your fees only cover your first attempt. Re-sit fees are charged £75.00 each and are not eligible for discounts, offers and concessionary fees.

International Fee If you are someone who has not lived in the UK for more than three years and do not have access to public funds, you may still be eligible to attend courses by paying an international fee. These fees are not advertised in the prospectus. Please ask our Centre Support team for more information.

Withdrawing from your course – outstanding debts If you withdraw from your course early, the full fee still applies. If you pay by instalments or loan, the balance is still owed to the College and becomes payable immediately. No refund will be given where the course fees have already been paid in full. Additionally, if you have secured a fully funded place and withdraw, the College will lose funding covering your place from that point, and reserves the right to invoice you for the balance of course fees. You must ensure you have read our Terms and Conditions on page 53-54 before finalising your enrolment. It is your responsibility to ensure that your fees are paid in full and on time. The College will pursue all outstanding debts. This will include any resources you have received but have not yet paid for. Please be aware that this may affect your credit rating for six years, and could result in a County Court Judgement (CCJ) against you.

Resources Resources for your course are not included in the fee unless otherwise stated in the course description. Resources can be purchased on your behalf by the College if you pay the resources fee at the time of enrolment. This fee is shown in the course details section. No concessions or discounts apply to resource fees.

Refunds There is no automatic entitlement to a refund. Where the College has unavoidably cancelled or closed your course, you will be offered a suitable alternative. If this is not possible, then a refund will be given. If your circumstances change beyond your control, the College may offer you a credit note at the discretion of the management.

60+ Reduced Fees To be eligible for the 60+ reduced fee you will need to produce evidence of your age. If this is not your first course with Havering Adult College since reaching 60 you may be exempt from bringing in your ID. Not all courses are automatically eligible for 60+ fees, so please check the fee section on a course-by-course basis.

53

If you are enrolling on a course with a resource fee within seven days of the course start date, we may not be able to provide the resources for the session. Therefore, you will be given a list of resources you will need to source yourself for that first session.

Gift Vouchers Gift vouchers are available to buy from the College throughout the year. Please call our team on 01708 434955 (select option 1 then option 1 again). Hands-Up Discount From time to time the quality of the service you receive may not be to the standard we expect. On these rare occasions, we will hold our hands up, and you will receive a 5% discount on any enrolment in the 12 months following the issue date of the letter. Reasons can include us having to delay the start date of an advertised class, or the cancelling of a session at short notice. Only one hands-up letter can be used per new enrolment. Comments, Compliments and Complaints We aim to provide high quality learning opportunities. If you have any comments, compliments or complaints then please do not hesitate to let us know.

learners to remind them to collect their work. After this time, the College will take steps to dispose of portfolios not claimed by learners.

The College reserves the right to cancel or reschedule courses at their discretion if in the opinion of the College there are insufficient enrolments or attendees to make the course financially viable. In such cases the participant shall be offered transfer to an alternative course. The College commits to notifying learners if their course has insufficient numbers to go ahead at least seven days before the start of the course.

Contract Upon completing the College’s Enrolment Form (also referred to as a Learning Agreement), either face to face or over the phone, the learner enters into a legally binding contract with the College. Where you have signed up to a qualification course, and where this course has been entirely funded due to your job seeking status, it is expected that you will participate in at least one of our employability programmes as a condition of undertaking this course of study with the College. In addition, if you withdraw from your course with fees outstanding you remain liable and the College will seek to recover this debt. If your personal circumstances change whilst on the course resulting in your eligibility for concessions ceasing, the College reserves the right to levy a charge for the outstanding fee amount from the point of the change. Havering Adult College reserves the right to cease assessing learners’ work in the event they default in their payments until such time as the outstanding balance is then paid. We may contact you within six months of completing your course to track your progress. Signing the Enrolment Form confirms your acceptance of this condition.

If not appropriate/acceptable a credit note for course fees will be issued. In such cases the College liability shall be restricted to a reimbursement of any fees paid to the College. In the event of the cancellation of courses or classes for a reason outside the control of the College, the College shall be under no obligation to provide any reimbursement. Attendance If you cannot attend the first session of your course but wish to continue on the programme, you should inform the College immediately on 01708 434955 (select option 3). If you fail to do so we reserve the right to offer your place to an applicant on our waiting list, and you may forfeit any fees paid. If you fail to attend four consecutive sessions without notification, the College reserves the right to withdraw you from the course, in line with ESFA requirements. Please ensure you are clear on the minimum attendance requirements of your course, as this may impact on your ability to achieve. Some courses require a minimum 85% attendance. Copyright The copyright in all material provided by the College shall (unless expressly stated otherwise) remain vested in the College and may not be reproduced without the College’s specific written consent. The copyright in, and of any work produced, by the learners as part of the course, shall remain with the College and work may be retained at the discretion of the College for display or promotional activities. Liability and Insurance The College shall not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by a learner in connection with the provision of any course or service except in the case of death, personal injury or loss suffered as a direct result of the College’s negligence. The College shall not be liable to the learner for any delay in performing, or any failure to perform, any of the College’s obligations, if the delay or failure was due to any cause beyond the College’s reasonable control. The College does not insure learners’ personal belongings and as such, learners are responsible for making appropriate provision in respect of insurance arrangements to protect their property (including vehicles) and person. This includes learners opting to park of their own volition at any of the College’s sites. Learners accept by signing the enrolment form that they attend and park at their own risk. The College will not store learners’ completed work for longer than 12 months after the completion of a course. The College will attempt to contact

NOTE: Nothing in these Terms and Conditions of Enrolment affects your statutory rights.

Financial Terms & Conditions 1. Payment Terms Settlement is due on enrolment. Places will not be held without payment. Settlement in full or in part by agreement with the College will ensure that your name appears on the course register. 2. Interest The College reserves the right to charge interest at the current Bank of England base rate plus 2% per month if payment is not made by the due date. 3. Withdrawal from Course All fees agreed on enrolment will be due regardless of whether a student later withdraws from the course. This includes where fees are being covered by 19+ Advanced Learner Loans, as the loans will terminate at the point of withdrawal and the learner will assume full liability for all outstanding fees to the College, as well as repayments to the loans provider. Similarly, where payment is by instalments, at the point of withdrawal the outstanding fees will become due in full and final settlement. Those in receipt of full fee remission due to their status will also become liable for the amount of fees due for the remainder of the course, as funding associated with that enrolment will cease at the point of withdrawal and could otherwise adversely affect the financial viability of any given course. The London Borough of Havering will seek to recover any monies owed, and non-payment could result in a County Court Judgement (CCJ). A CCJ can effect your credit rating for up to six years.

4. Reimbursement Once enrolled, a learner is liable for the fee identified in this agreement regardless of whether they subsequently decide to withdraw from the course. Reimbursement in whole or in part for fees paid will only be considered in truly exceptional cases. All applications for reimbursement must be made in writing. Appropriate supporting documentation must be attached (e.g. medical certificates). Please note, once a course has been purchased, there is no automatic entitlement to a refund. The College reserves the right to make a deduction of £25 from such reimbursements to represent the administration and other costs to the College occasioned by the learner’s withdrawal. If the College requires a learner to leave for reasons of conduct, the learner will remain liable for the full amount agreed at enrolment. 5. Credit Notes Credit notes in whole or in part may be obtained for course withdrawal for reasons agreed between the learner and the College. Credit notes may be valid for a one year period from the date of issue and are not transferable to another learner. 6. Fee Reductions Fee reductions will only be applicable to courses as indicated in this prospectus and to learners meeting the criteria as laid down in this prospectus. Evidence must be provided. Evidence may be further checked to ensure all learners are still eligible for any concession applied at the commencement of the course. 7. Receipts Receipts will be provided for all monies paid to the College except where payment is made through BACS or standing order. 8. Certificates and Results Where successful completion of a qualification course results in the award of a certificate, the College reserves the right to suspend further assessment of a learner’s work in the event that said learner defaults on their instalment payments, or where overall fees or other amounts remain due. This is deemed to be a breach in the contract between the learner and the College, and it is entirely at the discretion of the College as to whether or not further assessment will take place once outstanding fees are paid. 9. Non-Acceptance of Enrolment The College reserves the right not to accept applicants or enrolments from individuals or sponsors where fees or other costs from previous courses remain outstanding until such time as all outstanding fees or other outstanding costs are paid. 10. Non-Payment of Fees In addition to the terms of clause 9 above, the College reserves the right to terminate an enrolment at any time during the life of a course where fees are outstanding or where any agreed instalment payment defaults. The College may take legal action for the recovery of monies due and in such circumstances the College reserves the right to make charges of up to £300 to represent the administration and other costs to the College occasioned by the nonpayment.
