PART–TIME & SHORT COURSE GUIDE

2020/21 Hereford Campus | Holme Lacy Campus


GETTING STARTED Where do you want to study? To help you find what you are looking for, courses are listed alphabetically in table format and split into the Hereford Campus and the Holme Lacy Campus. What type of course do you want to study? This guide covers a wide range of subjects and study options. To help you find what you are looking for we have categorised them into two options. Option 1 – Leisure Courses I hope you will enjoy browsing this prospectus to discover the wide range of part-time courses available locally for you, at our Hereford City and Holme Lacy campuses. Thousands of people from Herefordshire, and much further afield, choose to learn at HLC. Many wish to achieve qualifications to develop their career prospects; others want to learn for pleasure and to develop friendships. Course costs vary because they do not all receive government subsidies; some are fully funded by students and/or their employers. We work hard, however, to provide you with an excellent choice of affordable and accessible programmes. Whilst all of the courses in this prospectus are planned to go ahead as described, some courses listed may experience delayed start dates, amended content or delivery styles and could be cancelled if required, due to the ongoing pandemic. Whatever decision is made, it will be in line with government guidance and advice at the time. The College is implementing assorted processes and procedures to ensure the safety and welfare of both students and staff throughout this time.

We offer many low-cost short leisure courses for adults (19 years and above at the start of the course). These courses are perfect for sampling a new subject or continuing with a hobby you enjoy. Courses are frequently added throughout the year with varying start dates, making them really flexible. With the majority of courses being low-cost they are perfect for dipping into and a great way to meet new people. To help you find these types of courses we’ve added this logo so you can easily spot them in this course guide. Option 2 – Professional Skills & Training We offer a wide variety of professional courses in a wealth of subject areas. Part-time students come to HLC with a variety of motivations to study; retraining for a change in career, looking to progress in the workplace or maybe setting up a business. From professional creative sewing courses and construction industry qualifications to management training and counselling, there are many opportunities for you to study for your next step. How to Apply

I trust that you will find a course that meets your requirements and join us to benefit from our vibrant learning community.

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 because 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 to equality of opportunity and helps prevent discrimination. Increasing our understanding of the needs of different groups of people promotes good relations between people.

Support Available at HLC 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 following; your Tutor, Team Leader, Assistant Principal or the College’s Safeguarding Officer.

SUPPORTING YOU Making decisions, balancing your life, studying hard – you might need some help along the way. We have an exceptional learner services team to support and guide you throughout your time with us at college, whatever challenges come your way.

► Age ► Race ► Disability (including physical, mental and learning impairments) ► Sex ► Pregnancy, maternity, breastfeeding ► Gender identity ► Marriage or civil partnership status ► Religion or belief ► Sexual orientation Everyone has several of these protected characteristics, therefore everyone is protected by equality legislation from discrimination in education, at work and in other situations.

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 may 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.

discrimination. These groups of people share ‘equality protected characteristics’ such as:

SAFEGUARDING & PREVENT Safeguarding our students, staff and visitors is important to us. Safeguarding means: ► ► ► ► ► ►

Promotion of 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 & extremism

The term ‘safeguarding’ embraces both child and vulnerable adult protection and 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 and neglect Prevention of discrimination Anti-bullying and harassment Addressing attendance issues Supporting health-care plans for students with specific medical needs ► Safety and security ► Prevention of terrorism & extremism – HLC supports the Government’s ‘Prevent’ strategy working against terrorism and extremism in all its forms If you, as a student at the College, have any concerns about your well-being, safety or rights, then you should contact your Tutor, Team Leader or any of the Safeguarding Panel Members whose details are all shown to the right.

MONEY MATTERS Course costs vary depending on individual circumstances. Some courses receive no government subsidy whereas others are partially or, in some cases, fully subsidised.

How Much Is My Course? When you are offered a place on a course, this is conditional upon payment of the appropriate fee at enrolment. Fees have been included alongside the relevant courses to act as a guide when choosing your course. Not all fees are available at the time of print and some may be subject to change or may exclude material and exam fees. For these reasons we strongly advise that you find out the relevant costs before you enrol. Contact T: 0800 032 1986 E: enquiries@hlcollege.ac.uk If you wish to undertake a course which is funded by the government, and you are under 19 years old on September 1st 2020, you will not have to pay tuition or exam fees, although other fees for example, covering professional fees, materials, necessary equipment and trips may still apply.

Fee Reductions for Adults Adults (aged 19 years or over) undertaking courses funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency may be entitled to reduced course fees if they meet the following criteria: ► Adults (aged 19 to 23 years) wishing to study at: • Level 2 who do not have a first full Level 2 qualification (i.e. do

6

| www.hlcollege.ac.uk

not have 5 GCSEs at grades 4–9 (grades A*–C), an NVQ at Level 2 or an equivalent qualification); or • Level 3 who do not have a first full Level 3 qualification (i.e. do not have 2 or more A-Level passes or 4 or fewer AS Level qualifications, an NVQ at Level 3 or equivalent will be exempt from tuition fees, although other fees covering examinations, certification and materials may still apply ► Adults undertaking English or Maths basic skills, including GCSE level if the student has not previously attained a grade 4 (grade C), will be exempt from tuition and exam fees ► Adults who are in receipt of certain means-tested benefits (Job Seekers Allowance, Employment and Support Allowance in the Work-related Activity Group) may be entitled to apply for a reduction in fees ► Recipients of Council Tax Benefit, Housing Benefit, Income Support, Working Tax Credit, Pension Credit, Contribution-based ESA, DLA, Tax Award Notice or the new Universal Credit who are unemployed and wish to train in order to find work, may also be entitled to apply for a reduction in fees Valid documentary evidence of any qualifying benefits received must be provided in order for fee reduction to be allowed. For further information contact: T: 0800 032 1986 E: enquiries@hlcollege.ac.uk


Advanced Learner Loan Advanced Learner Loans provide financial support for those aged 19 years and above to access some advanced (Level 3) and higher (Level 4) further education courses. These loans operate in a similar manner to those available in higher education for tuition costs, and are managed by the Student Loans Company. This means that rather than an individual having to pay for their course upfront they have the option of accessing an advanced student loan. Students can apply from 1st April 2020 for courses starting on or after 1st August 2020. It’s easy to apply, household income is not taken into account and there is no credit check. Students will not have to pay anything back until they finish their course and their income is over £26,575 a year. Further information is available by following the link below: https://www.gov.uk/ advanced-learnerloan/ overview

Finance for University-Level Courses Whilst many university-level courses are labelled as ‘full-time’ the attendance can vary greatly, sometimes being only one day a week in college or university. Detailed course and finance information is available at www. hlcollege. ac.uk or in the UniversityLevel Course Guide. We strongly recommend that you refer to the most up-to-date information on our website so you can make an informed decision.

Can I Pay By Instalments? You can pay by instalments on certain high cost courses. We regret that we are unable to offer this facility on courses where the total cost payable is less than £200. The instalment plan consists of two simple steps: 1) 25% deposit at enrolment 2) Followed by three equal monthly payments by direct debit commencing at an agreed start date Alternative payment options include bank transfer, credit/ debit card, cash, cheque or online via our website. Account facilities are available to employers, provided that written evidence is produced in advance of the student’s enrolment, indicating that the employer is willing to pay fees on the student’s behalf.

What Happens If I Need a Refund? Classes need to be viable in order to run. If there are not enough students, a full refund will be paid. Refunds for any other reason are only granted in exceptional circumstances at the discretion of the College.

What Fees Will Apply If I Am a Student From Overseas (non-eu)? HLC welcomes students from overseas and we’re sure that you will find HLC an ideal place to study. HLC has attracted students from all over the world. Fees for students who are from overseas are

applied at a different rate from those indicated in this guide. For information regarding course fees, when applying as an overseas student (this includes those who have not lived in the EU for more than three years), please contact: Admissions Team T: 0800 032 1986 E: admissions@hlcollege.ac.uk

Rules and Regulations ► Classes will not be formed unless enough students enrol to make them viable ► Classes may be cancelled if numbers fall below the minimum required ► HLC reserves the right to alter or cancel courses or parts of courses for whatever reason, without prior notice ► The Principal’s decision is final as to whether or not a student may be enrolled for any particular class or course Further details of HLC regulations are available from reception at the Hereford Campus. PLEASE NOTE All fee policies and concessions are correct at the time of printing; changes in government policy may mean that arrangements could differ when enrolment takes place from August 2020 onwards. Students should make enquiries to establish the current position prior to enrolment.

3) Higher Apprenticeships: Higher and Degree Apprenticeships involve the development and assessment of skills and knowledge at Level 4 or above (relevant to the occupational sector or job role), and as defined by the Framework or Standard. Higher Apprenticeships at Level 4 and Level 5 can allow progression on to university degrees, and Degree Apprenticeships are now becoming more widely available in many sectors. To start a Higher or Degree Apprenticeship, the applicant should ideally have a relevant Level 3 vocational qualification, three good A Levels, or have completed a relevant Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship. More specific entry requirements can be found on our website: www.hlcollege.ac.uk

HOW TO APPLY & FIND AN EMPLOYER So you’ve chosen an industry and you think an apprenticeship might be for you. What next? You need an employer and there are a few ways to get one: 1. Approach them directly - 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

How Long is an Apprenticeship?

2. Call the College - many businesses contact HLC to find them an apprentice that would be suited to them, so there might be just the right job for you. Get in touch on 0800 032 1986 and we can advise you on the next steps like sending us your CV and possible interviews.

The minimum length of an apprenticeship is 12 months, but some apprenticeships will be designed to last two, three or four years.

3. Look for adverts - some companies advertise apprenticeship vacancies and they are looking for people like you to join their business. This could be in local press, national press, at job fairs, through recruitment agencies or online through sites such as:

College Attendance

► The College hows some vacancies online in its apprenticeship section: www.hlcollege.ac.uk ► The Government’s job search site: www.gov.uk/jobsearch ► The Apprenticeship Guide: www.apprenticeshipguide.co.uk ► The National Apprenticeship Service: www.apprenticeships.org.uk

You may be required to attend college or other off-the-job training in order to gain certain skills and undertake certain assessments. This can be on day release or block release, depending on the apprenticeship you choose.

4. Current employer - if you already have a job your employer might consider taking you on as an apprentice. If they need to find out more, direct them to the National Apprenticeship Service website for more information.
