WELCOME TO NORTH SHROPSHIRE COLLEGE Welcome to North Shropshire College. Our goal is simple: to provide you with the very best education and training to equip you for further studies at university or employment. We are here to help you realise your dreams. At North Shropshire College we deliver a very broad range of courses, specifically designed to meet your personal needs. We are a relatively small college, so the well-being and success of every single student is important to us. You will be supported to achieve your best, and treated as an individual, not a number. Our teachers and support staff are very well-qualified and experienced, and we are able to offer outstanding facilities to progress your education. I hope that you will enjoy reading this course guide and find a programme that meets your requirements. Should you need further guidance or want to visit us, please contact our Student Services Team on 01691 688 080. We trust that you will join our learning community in North Shropshire.

As Head of North Shropshire College, I am very proud that the College is going from strength to strength, with the performance of our students getting better every year. The merger of colleges to form Herefordshire, Ludlow and North Shropshire College has brought about many advantages, for example; we are the only college in the area to offer a timetable suited to the demands of young people living in our rural community, who often face long daily journeys. Through the merger there has been increased investments in facilities, including a new refectory at Walford, and assorted renovations across both campuses. Our timetables book study periods to guarantee free half days and, in most cases, a free day every week; so students can study at home, pursue their sporting or other extra-curricular activities, or possibly take a part-time job. I look forward to meeting you at one of our Open Events and welcoming you to our unique and friendly College.

INDUSTRY PLACEMENTS The College is encouraging Level 3 students to take part in a minimum of 45-days of industry placement. The idea is for you to build and develop your skills in a genuine working environment, taking the theoretical knowledge of your course and putting this into practice. Your placements will take place outside of your normal college days, which may be one or two days a week, or in blocks.

What are the Benefits of Industry Placements for you? ■ Employers are always keen to take on workers with some

■ ■

■ ■

experience under their belt, which can be difficult straight after finishing your qualification. With an industry placement you can add this to your CV and stand out from other candidates. An industry placement will offer you the chance to learn more transferable and industrial skills from the industry’s experts. If you make a good impression on the employer, they may be interested in taking you on as a paid employee, either on a parttime basis, or as an apprentice. Experience life in a real working environment. This placement could be the first stepping stone to your future career.

Tips for finding your Industry Placement ■ Utilise your connections – Speak to your friends and

family, tutors, careers advisors or neighbours, they may know of somewhere suitable for you to enquire about a placement. ■ Search your local area – Have a look around your local area for businesses that you may not know about, newspapers are also a good way to find local employers. ■ Try a different angle – You could try looking for part-time vacancies in your chosen industry, you could get a work experience trial which leads on to employment. ■ Leave your details – Some employers may not be in a position to take you on for a placement, but leave your contact details with them, as their situation may change. ■ Make notes – Ensure that you know what you would like to ask before phoning, note who it is you have been speaking with, and any other relevant information during the call. ■ Aim for the top – When contacting companies, try to speak to the Manager, or the Human Resources (HR) department if it’s a larger company. ■ Keep Trying – Don’t be discouraged if you get turned down, don’t worry, just keep on looking. ■ Be prepared – When contacting employers, ensure you have your CV at the ready, including your skills and experience, these can serve as prompts during a conversation. ■ Always make a good impression – Ensure that you are polite and respectful when talking with employers, they are much more likely to remember you. ■ Look online – Businesses may have a section on their website where you can apply for work experience or voluntary work.

CHOOSING YOUR COURSE WHAT DO YOU NEED TO THINK ABOUT? When choosing your course it is a good idea to read through the following information so you know what to expect from your course, and which options are available to you. These steps outline how to go about choosing your course and are followed by more information to help you.

01 Where are you now? Check the progression table opposite to see what levels of study are currently available to you. It might be that you need to start on a lower level course in order to progress to a higher level of study, so check that your qualifications meet the entry requirements of the course you are considering.

02 Come to an Open Event This gives you the opportunity to speak directly to course tutors who are all experts in their fields. They can help you decide the best way forward. You can find dates for these events on page 3.

03 Get help You can also contact our Student Services Team to speak to someone about how you might progress with NSC. Alternatively, if you are still in school then you can contact your school Careers Advisor. Student Services T: 01691 688 080 E: info@nsc.ac.uk

16-18 Study Programme Each student aged 16 –18 years at NSC has a study programme specifically tailored to meet their educational needs and career aspirations. It consists of the main chosen qualification, as well as further development of maths, English and employability skills. Its aim is to improve young peoples’ career prospects and also widen options for higher level study. These programmes include: ■ All full-time students aged 16 –18 years will study English

and maths as part of their studies. This will be either GCSE or functional skills, depending on prior GCSE grades and initial assessment. Those students who have already achieved sufficient grades will be supported through a programme of directed studies. Maths and English skills and the ability to apply them are seen as essential skills by universities and employers. Many universities now accept a Level 2 Functional Skill in maths and English as recognised qualifications which carry UCAS points. This is a government-driven initiative, fully supported by the College. ■ Each full-time student will participate in work experience, as

well as activities designed to develop the skills and confidence required for their progression. ■ Those students who aren’t able to study for a substantial

vocational qualification (e.g. if they have complex learning needs and/or disadvantage) will study a programme to develop their employability skills, this might include some work experience.

Adult Students Whilst adult students do not have study programmes, they do have access to the same support and resources as all other students. If you have questions about your learning needs or want to find out more about studying as an adult then you can get in touch with our Student Services Team by calling 01691 688 080 or emailing info@nsc.ac.uk.

SUPPORTING YOU HELP WHEN YOU NEED IT Equality & Diversity ‘Equality’ means treating all groups of people fairly, providing equality of opportunity and removing barriers to success. It is not about treating everybody the same – different people have different needs. For example, making reasonable adjustments for people with a disability (like providing additional time in exams for students with dyslexia) removes barriers and helps prevent discrimination. Increasing our understanding of the needs of different groups promotes good relations between people. Equality – Protected Characteristics Equality laws exist to protect the groups of people who have traditionally faced discrimination. These groups of people share ‘equality protected characteristics’ such as: ■ Age ■ Disability ■ Gender reassignment ■ Marriage/civil partnership ■ Race ■ Religion or belief ■ Pregnancy/maternity leave ■ Sex ■ Sexual orientation

What Is Diversity? ‘Diversity’ refers to individual difference. People are unique and differ from one another in a range of ways. Differences may or may not be visible and many include personal characteristics such as background, culture and personality. We value diversity which means that we aim to realise the potential of every individual student and staff member. Opportunities For Everyone We strive to ensure that every student at North Shropshire College is treated fairly regardless of background, age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religious belief, disability, family circumstances, or the community where they live. They will not be treated any differently from anyone else at the College. It also means that we will not put up with bullying. We will not tolerate anyone who threatens, picks on or isolates another student or a member of staff. College staff are committed to giving all students an equal chance to learn and achieve their goals. There is an on-going programme of action and monitoring, which seeks to identify and eliminate all forms of discrimination, whether intentional or unintentional. The College’s Single Equality Plan can be found on our website https://www.nsc.ac.uk/aboutnsc/equality-diversity-safeguarding.

Everyone has several of these protected characteristics, therefore everyone is protected by equality legislation from discrimination in education, at work and in other situations.

Support Available At NSC The College is committed to ensuring that students, staff and visitors are not subject to harassment or discrimination. The College is also able to provide help and support to individual students or groups on all of the nine protected characteristics. If you wish to talk or need help and support, please contact one of the safeguarding contacts shown on the page opposite.

Safeguarding & Prevent

■ Prevention of terrorism and extremism – NSC supports the

government’s Prevent Strategy working against terrorism and extremism in all of its forms.

Safeguarding our students, staff and visitors is important to us. Safeguarding means: ■ Promotion of your health and development ■ Ensuring your safety and care ■ Ensuring you are offered the best life chances ■ Protection from abuse and neglect ■ Prevention of bullying and harassment ■ Prevention of terrorism and extremism The term ‘safeguarding’ embraces both child, young people and vulnerable adult protection. We take preventative approaches to keep our student, staff and visitor population safe. Safeguarding encompasses students’ health and safety, welfare and well-being. The college is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We have developed policies and procedures that aim to meet this commitment. Our policy covers: ■ Abuse, neglect and prevention of harm ■ Prevention of discrimination ■ Anti-bullying and harassment ■ Addressing attendance issues ■ Supporting health-care plans for students with specific medical needs ■ Safety and security

Personal Support Service NSC also offers a Personal Support Service. If you need to talk to someone privately about issues inside or outside of college, we offer a free, confidential mentoring and counselling service. Our pastoral mentors can support you to: ■ get through a difficult time in your life ■ help you deal with unresolved issues

MONEY MATTERS NSC believes in giving everyone equal opportunities to study further education. The College receives some funding from the Government to support student study and this varies depending on the course being studied, the student’s age and their level of study. Because of this, there are some fees that the College may have to pass on to students. The following information lists financial support available and we recommend contacting the Student Services for further information. Please note that the costs on course pages are for guidance purposes only and should be checked prior to enrolment. Are you aged between 16 and 19 years on 31 August 2019? For students who enrol on their further education full-time course before their 19th birthday or are continuing to attend a course they began before turning 19, there are no tuition or examination fees. However, some courses may charge fees to cover materials, equipment, specialist clothing, etc. Are you aged 19 or over? If you are aged 19 or over at the start of your course then tuition fees will vary. As everyone has individual circumstances then the best way to work out the fees relevant to you is to call and speak to Student Services on 01691 688029. It will also be helpful for you to read through the following information on this page regarding, the Advanced Learner Loan.

Help is at Hand If you need help to pay for meals, travel and equipment or you are a young parent and need help with childcare, talk to us about the College bursary funds and other financial support that is available, such as: ■ 16 –18 Bursary – for help with travel, course related expenses, childcare and free meals ■ 19+ Bursary – for help with travel, course related expenses, childcare and course fees ■ Advanced Learner Loan – to cover the cost of your course ■ Advanced Learner Loan Bursary – for help with travel, course related expenses and childcare ■ Education Maintenance Allowance – £30 p/w for Welsh students only ■ Welsh Government Learner Grant – to help cover the cost of course fees for Welsh students 14 www.nsc.ac.uk

Advanced Learner Loan

■ 16 –18 Vulnerable Student Bursary – £1,200.00 for students

who are in care or claim ESA.

Advanced Learner Loan (19+) The Advanced Learner Loan provides support to adult students who are: ■ Aged 19-23 who already have a first full Level 3 qualification Or are: ■ Aged 24 or over, with or without a first full Level 3 qualification The Advanced Learner Loan enables adult students to access advanced (Level 3) and higher (Level 4) further education courses, with financial support similar to that which is available in higher education for tuition costs, from the Student Loans Company. This means rather than an individual having to pay for their course upfront they have the option of accessing an FE Loan that they will only start to repay once they have left the course and are earning over £25,000. For the latest details please visit www.gov.uk. For more information or application forms please visit www.nsc.ac.uk or contact: Student Services call 01691 688029 or email studentfinance@nsc.ac.uk

Transport Costs Accessing local education and training can often be a challenge for some of our young people due to the high costs of travel. We have decided to offer subsidised travel on all routes for the 19/20 academic year, to enable the young people of North Shropshire to access education and training at their local college. Travel remains free on all routes where students are eligible for an NSC bursary. A new zoning system for passes has been introduced as follows: ■ Within 4 miles of any NSC campus to be attended – £350 per academic year ■ Within 5 –15 miles of any NSC campus to be attended – £450 per academic year ■ Over 15 miles from any NSC campus to be attended – £550 per academic year ■ If students are travelling by service bus, train or own car and are in receipt of any of the NSC bursaries they will be eligible for a refund of travel expenses (terms & conditions apply) For more information or application forms please visit www.nsc.ac.uk or contact: Student Services call 01691 688029 or email studentfinance@nsc.ac.uk

WHAT IS AN APPRENTICESHIP? An apprenticeship is a paid job with an accompanying skills development programme, which allows the apprentice to gain technical knowledge and real practical experience through a mix of learning in the workplace, formal ‘off-the-job’ training and the opportunity to practise and embed new skills in a real work context. So, not only will you gain valuable experience, you will also be learning and earning at the same time. Apprenticeships have been designed by employers to meet employers’ needs for a particular sector or job role. Each apprenticeship defines the skills, knowledge, behaviours and formal qualifications that the apprentice needs to acquire in order to become competent in their chosen field, and to be awarded the status of fully qualified apprentice. Apprenticeships are nationally recognised as a fantastic pathway into the career of your choice and the College’s training provider County Training now offers apprenticeships in almost all industries.

What subjects are available? Business Skills Business Administration Team Leading Management Customer Service IT Application Specialist IT, Software, Web and Telecoms Professionals Warehouse Operative Senior Warehouse Person Early Years Children & Young People’s Workforce Early Years Educator Support Teaching & Learning in Schools Residential Childcare Hospitality Food Production & Cookery Professional Cookery Hairdressing Hairdressing Barbering

What levels of apprenticeship are available?

Health & Social Care Adult Care Worker Lead Adult Care Worker

There are three levels of apprenticeships available for those aged 16 and over, dependent on the level and responsibility of the job role.

Intermediate Apprenticeships

Approach an employer directly

(equivalent to five good GCSE passes)

You can contact an employer to see if they would like to take you on as an apprentice. They might not know that they need an apprentice until you contact them! Remember that you are hoping that they will take you on as an employee, so act professionally and make a good impression. If you can, find out a bit about the company first by visiting their website and preparing what you want to say. Remember there are other attributes that employers value, such as: ■ Enthusiasm ■ Willingness to learn ■ Reliability ■ Punctuality ■ Responsibility ■ Working as part of a team ■ Good sense of humour ■ Working on your own initiative

Intermediate Apprenticeships involve the development and assessment of skills and knowledge at Level 2 (relevant to the occupational sector or job role). Achievement of an Intermediate Apprenticeship may allow progression onto an Advanced Apprenticeship. To start an Intermediate Apprenticeship, the applicant should ideally have five GCSEs (grade E/grade 2 or above).

Advanced Apprenticeships (equivalent to two A Level passes) Advanced Apprenticeships involve the development and assessment of skills and knowledge at Level 3 (relevant to the occupational sector or job role). Achievement of an Advanced Apprenticeship may allow progression onto a Higher Apprenticeship. To start an Advanced Apprenticeship, the applicant should ideally have five good GCSEs (grade C/grade 4 or above) or have successfully completed an Intermediate Apprenticeship.

How long is an apprenticeship? The minimum length of an apprenticeship is 12 months, but some apprenticeships will be designed to last two, or more years. This will depend on the framework or standard being followed, the level of apprenticeship, the specific occupational area/sector and the prior skill levels of the apprentice.

What can I do after I complete my apprenticeship? There are a number of routes that you can take after an apprenticeship. You can use the skills that you have developed to carry on in employment.

Do you know what makes a good communicator? Did you know that approximately 25,000 new words are added to the Oxford English Dictionary every year? Are you annoyed when your elders complain of teenagers’ “bad” English? English Language allows you a chance to actively engage with everyday language: to understand how it works, evolves and changes, whilst celebrating its diversity.

Course Content In addition to studying written language, A Level English Language looks closely at how English works as speech, and at new types of communication such as text messaging or tweeting. English is in a constant state of change, and your course will include a focus on how it has developed in the past, but also how it is developing now. You will study how children’s language develops and how the use of English varies both nationally and globally. You will create your own texts to suit different purposes and audiences and you will also develop your own language investigations.

I find the environment is much better than at school, I found the transition really easy, and the staff are very supportive. I chose to study Spa Therapy as it was a subject that appeared really interesting to me. My favourite part is being able to do massages on real clients. It’s a good course, you learn quite a lot, so I’d recommend it to others with a similar interest. Next I’m planning to study Hair Dressing here at the College.”

Lewis Dutton TNS Football Scholarship Level 3 “I started at TNS in the Junior Academy, and knew that playing football was what I wanted to do as a career. The scholarship is a great way to do this, as it means I get to play the football that I love, but also, I’m gaining a qualification at the same time. Unlike other sport courses, the scholarship is fully focussed on football, but because of the qualification that you gain being worth 3 A Levels, you can still go on to university. The course is good for players of all abilities, and I’ve really enjoyed being part of the College. The teachers are great, and coming to the end of my second year, I’ve been offered a contract with the main team as a goalkeeper. If you love football, I’d really recommend this course for you.”

I love the atmosphere at the College and I find the tutors are really supportive of my decisions. I wasn’t initially sure that I wanted to go to university, however when I found out that the doors were open to me and after speaking to my tutors about it, I went to university open events and decided it was the route I wanted to take. I will be starting my degree in International Tourism Management at Chester University this year and I’m really looking forward to it. It will be a three-year course with a one-year placement. The trips are an amazing part of the Travel & Tourism course at the College.

Interviews You can obtain further copies of this prospectus by telephoning 01691 688 080, or by emailing info@nsc.ac.uk.

From October 2019 onwards we will be offering a series of interviews and guided tours at our open events. You will have a formal interview with a subject specialist who will discuss your career aims and ensure you are on the right course for you. Acceptance onto your chosen course may depend on your examination results.

Enrolling In the week before the beginning of the autumn term, you will be invited to college to complete enrolment formalities. You will find that you are really getting to know us by then. After the long summer break it is also an opportunity to meet up with old friends, make new ones and catch up on all the news.

As a North Shropshire College Student You will find that the first week is spent making sure that you have all the necessary information to make your time with us a happy, safe, and productive period of your life. We aim to give you the support to develop your full potential, but your time with us will not just be about computers, books, classrooms and exams. Should you wish, you will be able to be involved in a whole range of sporting, social and cultural activities.
