Here are some of the best reasons to study with us... Our Eastbourne campus is packed with fantastic facilities and offers you a university-style experience.

Eastbourne is known as the ‘Sunshine Coast’, as it regularly tops the charts as the UK town with the most sunshine hours in any given year. And given that sunshine equates to Vitamin D - the happy hormone - we’re always cheerful and smiling. Just like Eastbourne town centre, we’re undergoing somewhat of a resurgence. We’re investing in our campus facilities, we’re improving our equipment and machinery, and focusing on innovation. All of these things help us to excel in a number of areas including Motor Vehicle, Sport, Hair & Beauty, and Catering, to name just a few.

www.escg.ac.uk


Expert tutors Our staff are fully-trained in their subject area, often with an exciting work background in the industry they teach. This provides contacts and links to the industry, meaning you get the chance to work with employer-led briefs and get valuable work experience (More on that to come later on!) Our Art students have designed marketing material for Medi Tech Trust, held exhibitions at Charleston Farmhouse, and submitted work in the annual Royal Opera House Design Challenge, with winning entrants in each of the past six years! As well as giving you the best learning experience our tutors are also able to help you get your foot in the door with potential new employers and line up interviews once you finish college.

We are an important part of the community We love our community and like to think that we play an important role in making Eastbourne a great place to live, study, and play. We often host or support a number of community events such as awards nights, Christmas markets, gala dinners, SciFi conventions, and political debates. Each year, our catering students select a local charity to support and raise money for throughout the year. In the past, fundraising activities have included cream tea afternoons, Christmas dinners, and seven-course Valentine’s Day meals. Other things in the area we’ve been involved in that you may not know: Eastbourne’s town centre Christmas Market features log cabins built by our construction students and our Catering department provides pancakes at the annual Charity Pancake Race! We can also be found at Eastbourne’s International Air show, Airborne, albeit on the ground. The start of this summer event often ties in with A-Level Results Day for students.

Other facilities include a healthy complement of track and field facilities such as a 400metre running track, long jump, and discus net. We also have sports fields for competitive football and rugby, and a 3G all-weather pitch.

Industry placements

The perfect location

Gaining experience in the workplace is an integral part of our courses. This hands-on experience helps to bring your learning to life and demonstrates to employers that you are able to carry out the tasks that you’re being taught in class. We work with some amazing local and national employers (see page 20 for a full list!).

It’s not just our Media students who use the seaside town for their film projects. Eastbourne is a popular filming location, having featured in blockbuster movies including Harry Potter, Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, Pearl Harbour, and TV shows including Top Gear and That Mitchell & Webb Look.

Award-winning students If you dream it, then you can be it. This is the college ethos and something our tutors are here to support you with. You will be encouraged to take part in local and national competitions relevant to your course. Our students studying construction or beauty therapy vocational courses are often entered into - and win competitions including WorldSkills and UK Skills.

Our Creative Media students have assisted on video shoots with artists including chart-topping band Toploader, broadcast their own radio shows, received newsroom training with BBC reporters and showcased their work in local cinemas. Student artwork and photography has also been displayed at local venues including the railway station and Towner Art Gallery.

Beauty Therapy alumni Rebecca West competed in the WorldSkills competition, and represented Great Britain in the finals held in Russia 2019!

I chose to study with East Sussex College because of the facilities. There’s a very relaxed atmosphere that allows for a very effective learning experience.

Our campus shot... in a snap A huge LRC Sometimes you just need a quiet space to buckle down and focus. That’s why we have designed our campus to have accessible Learning Resource Centre and this one is huge. There are literally thousands of books, magazines, and journals in there so you will always be able to find the information you’re looking for. There are lots of computers and quiet study pods, as well as friendly and super helpful staff who are on hand to point you in the right direction for assignment research, referencing and proofreading.

Coffee shops and canteens

Lots of green open spaces

There are plenty of places for you to grab breakfast, lunch, snacks, or a cup of coffee before or after lessons. The newly revamped Room 1Ten coffee shop is a modern space located on the ground floor at the heart of the campus. Vending machines, canteens and a smaller shop are also on site.

Our campus has lots of green open space which means you’ll always be able to find a calm and tranquil spot to sit and study, or relax with friends between lessons.

Our students always tell us how our campus gives them the freedom and independence to learn and it gets them ready for their next steps into employment or university. A pioneering Creative Hub After the successful launch of our Creative Hub at our Lewes campus, we will be developing a Creative Hub in Eastbourne. The Hub will give ‘Creatives’ the opportunity to work on live briefs from real clients to enhance their learning. Students from across a range of the college’s subjects, which could include Art & Design, Computing & IT, Business, and depending on the brief may include others, are able to come together to work and create products and services for our local business partners. This could range from a website to the promotion of a sports event.

Student Experience

Students’ Union

College will be a very memorable and important part of your life. You’ll spend two or three years working towards gaining your qualification(s), however, college isn’t just about studying. You’ll be able to develop yourself as a person, gaining all the soft interpersonal skills you need in order to succeed by getting involved with activities outside of the classroom- you’ll also develop your social skills and have loads of fun too!

Run by the students, for the students! Our Student Union is run by our elected Student President who partakes in committee meetings with our Governors and Principal. The Union works to improve all aspects of college life for all students. Whether that’s through social events, political campaigns or raising awareness for local or national issues. If you feel you want to be more proactive within the Union, then you could stand for an executive role on the committee, including Student Governor. This is a great opportunity where you get to build up confidence and develop various skills in teamwork, leadership and organisation. You will help our students have a great time at college, giving a first-hand insight into the experience of being a student.

What are A-Levels?

Tutorial System

Advanced Level qualifications, better known as A-Levels, are two year courses that are perfect for helping you get into university. You’ll be able to choose three subjects to study and you will usually be assessed by exams. Our A-Level programme follows the linear structure which means your exams will be at the end of your two years, rather than at the end of each module or year.

Why should you study A-Levels with East Sussex College? We have a fantastic range of A-Level subjects for you to study at our Eastbourne campus. We’ve have great success rates for helping our students get into their first choice universities. Our large buildings and facilities mean you have the luxury of learning in clean and comfortable classrooms. Our A-Level art students have the freedom to use all There are lots of the art facilities and materials in of quiet spaces Eversley House which include paints, a photography studio, and digital for you to work software.

outside of class as well. There are lots of quiet spaces for

you to work outside of class as well. The Learning Resource Centre (LRC) is a popular spot as it has thousands of books and journals, access to lots of computers and quiet study pods. Our friendly LRC team are always happy to help you with finding the right book for your essay research and they’ll also be happy to proof-read your work before you hand it in.

A Sixth Form education requires determination and hard work and we realise that support outside of the classroom is essential to enable you to succeed. When you enrol with us you will be assigned a tutor. They will be aligned with the subject you have chosen and be able to give you expert support and guidance with those subjects.

Academic Support We can provide academic support in the form of study and revision workshops. These enable you to focus on developing your skills and knowledge of your subject and take place throughout the year and more regularly as we approach exams season.

UCAS Application Support If your goal is to head to university after A-Levels then we’ll be able to support you with your UCAS application. We regularly run UCAS surgeries to help you with each step of the process, from setting up your account to writing and refining your personal statement.

Outstanding Opportunities... We also offer you the chance to complete an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). The EPQ is a Level 3 qualification that is worth half an A-Level and will help to boost your UCAS application and develop your knowledge in a particular area of interest. You can choose a topic, carry out research, and then write either a 5,000 word essay or create a ‘product’ and write a 1,000 word essay, followed by a short presentation. The skills you’ll develop as a result of doing an EPQ, such as project planning, decision making, record keeping, evaluation, presenting are invaluable in most jobs and uni courses. As a guide an A* in the EPQ is worth roughly 70 UCAS points, an A 60, B 50 and so on.

We have a modern and trendy coffee shop, Room 1 Ten, in Tyler House and loads of outside space with grassy banks, shaded areas and benches - perfect for relaxing and socialising (as well as revising!). 30

Learn outside the classroom Your learning will also take place outside of the classroom with a number of work experience opportunities, guest talks, and trips. Each year you’ll be able to take advantage of our excellent links with local and national employers to gain valuable work experience in an area related to your studies. In the past, students have worked for accountancy Work firms, marketing departments, in experience, local hospitals, with local news outlets guest talks and in print, TV and radio, and worked industry trips with lawyers and solicitors. These opportunities not only give you valuable hands-on experience, it also looks great on your CV and UCAS application. We often welcome university lecturers and industry experts into the college to give talks about their jobs, their industry, and to give you an insight into what the industry might look like in the future. We also give you the opportunity to get involved with lots of trips throughout the year. We put on coaches to the UCAS fairs in London and Brighton so you can find out more about university courses up and down the country. Our subject areas also organise course related trips throughout the year. Our students often visit the capital to experience the Law courts, parliament, banks, marketing agencies, and tourist attractions.

We’re all in it together We have a cosy little sixth form that has fantastic progression rates - giving our students the opportunity to move onto the things they want to do next - including their first choice university, starting an apprenticeship, or venturing off into the world of work. Our students always tell us how friendly and welcoming our sixth form is. It is a place where they’re able to meet new life-long friends and they are able to mature and gain independence. The feel of the large, modern building, the interaction with the tutors, and the in-depth subject knowledge is the perfect stepping stone to university.

32

It’s not all work, work, work! As we mentioned earlier, there are plenty of activities for you to get involved with outside of the classroom. Whether it is joining one of our sports academies, becoming a student rep, or starting your own club or society there is plenty to keep you busy.

So how do you choose your A-Level subjects? Some of the best advice we’ve ever heard is to plan backwards. Work out a rough plan of what job you’d like to have in ten years. From there you can look into the details of whether you’d need a degree to do this, and the subjects you need to study at A-Level to get you onto that degree.

Play to your strengths There is nothing wrong with studying the subjects your good at. If you’re predicted 8s and 9s in English, then perhaps consider taking A-Level English Language & Literature.

Don’t get bored The linear structure means that you’ll study A-Levels for two years. So it’s sensible to choose three subjects that you’re going to enjoy and maintain your interest in right up until the end.

Do your uni research As well as researching the courses you want to study at uni, find out about the courses they offer and discover what entry requirements you’ll need to get in. You’ll also be able to find out what facilities they have, what the student lifestyle is like, and whether you’d like to study there.

Facilitating subjects If you’re the type of person that likes to keep their options open, then perhaps facilitating subjects could be a good option. Many of the top universities look for facilitating subjects such as Geography, History, Physics, or French, because they equip you with critical thinking skills, the ability to research data, analyse data, and you are able to demonstrate your ability to learn and retain information.

There is quite a lot involved in A-Level Chemistry, things like experiments, titrations, and theory work. One week you could be blowing things up, setting things on fire, or changing the colour of things; it’s all good fun. My tutor is really good, she has helped me with things like setting experiments for me to do in my own time to pointing me in the right direction for work experience.

After Your A-Levels University The popular route for many students after completing their A-Levels is to study at university. Students go on to study subjects that are related to the ones they have studied at college, or take the opportunity to specialise in a subject, for instance Sports Journalism, Architecture, or Sound Production. You will be able to apply to university in your second year of A-Levels, but there is “I’m off to Warwick no harm in looking at university to study courses and universities creative writing - look you’d like to study at while out for my books on you’re in Year 11 or in your Amazon!” first year at college. You will give yourself plenty Emilia King of time to get an idea of A-Level Student what the university is like, to research the types of courses that are out there, and to discover what types of jobs the course can lead on to. Our advice is to apply to as many universities as you can (although there will be a fee for your UCAS application), and then you will be able to keep your options open.

50

www.escg.ac.uk

Once you have applied, the university will make you a conditional offer to their course, based on your predicted grades at the time you apply. Once you have opened your A-Level results, and you meet the conditional offer, you will then be able to accept their offer.


“I wanted to have a gap year so decided to get a paid job as the Student President - it’s a great way to save up for uni and get experience!” Lucy Head, A-Level Student

Employment You may feel that you’re ready to start earning a salary and begin working full-time after A-Levels. Lots of our past students have opted for full-time work rather than uni or an apprenticeship, and this may be right for you too. You will have gained Advanced Level qualifications in three subjects, showing that you are able to learn and retain information. You may be able to find fulltime positions in a number of organisations that relate to the subject you have studied, even thanks to their work experience placements. In the past, students have gone to work for local banks, galleries, accountancy firms, solicitors, and language schools.

Apprenticeship You may decide that university isn’t for you, but you’d still like to learn more about a particular subject, gaining valuable work experience in that area. Since a few changes were made to apprenticeships, more students are finishing their A-Levels and are turning to this work-based qualification.

“I found out that I could study an apprenticeship to become a paramedic, so I jumped at the chance!” Alex Whiting, A-Level Student

030 300 39699

Students are able to study Higher Apprenticeship which allows them to gain the equivalent level qualification to a degree, while gaining valuable experience in the workplace. Students have started higher apprenticeships in a number of areas including Engineering, Software Development, and Public Relations.

What are T-Levels? T-Levels are brand new technical study programmes and are set to become one of the three major options available to you after finishing your GCSEs, alongside A-Levels and Apprenticeships. Just like A-Levels, you will study your chosen T-Level for two years and at the end of the course, you can achieve the equivalent of three A-Levels. T-Levels offer you the chance to study one subject in detail, focusing on core elements that will underpin your knowledge, concepts and skills in your chosen industry. You will then have the opportunity to study a specialised set of skills, before undertaking an industry placement with an employer, which will last for a minimum of 315 hours, which is roughly 45 working days. T-Levels have been developed by the government, alongside employers, to teach you the Knowledge, Skills, and Behaviours to get you ready for work in the roles and positions that employers need you to fill.

We will be adding more T-Level pathways in September 2021 in:

What are vocational courses?

Our courses are endorsed by local businesses! We have fantastic links and relationships with lots of local businesses who have endorsed our courses. We have been working closely with them to ensure the knowledge and skills we are teaching you are the ones that they are looking for.

You may hear many different terms or names used to describe vocational qualifications, such as professional and technical, but essentially they are more hands-on and usually very practical.

Within each family you will be able to find your specialism. One of the key benefits to this structure is that you will be able to learn core skills that are transferable across the whole career family - no matter what specialism you choose.

They will involve learning in real situations, such as cutting real client’s hair in the college salon or cooking for paying customers in the college restaurant, all helping to get you ready for a specific job.

Work experience is an essential part of our courses!

Pioneering education We’re leading the way in a new era of education. We’ve spotted an opportunity to improve our curriculum to make it even better for you.

We’re working closely with our local employers so that we can teach you the core knowledge, skills, and behaviours you’ll need for your chosen industry. We’re then giving you more time and more meaningful opportunities for you to demonstrate these skills during industry placements. Our courses are grouped together in what we’re calling Career Families.

During my time at ESC I have had several on and offsite work experience opportunities. I have been a part of the college fashion show, for 2 years in a row, as the photographer. I have run workshops for students in schools to learn professional media equipment and I was an onstage photographer for ESC MiniFest where I was able to photograph EO and Reggie Yates. Work experience is an important aspect of this course and so for my first year I spent 6 weeks at The Graphic Design House in Portsmouth where I learnt how the print industry is run and redesigned some of their previous work using new techniques I had learnt.

This will include topics such as government, policies and the public services, citizenship, and health and fitness. You will also build on your interpersonal and communication skills and learn how to be an effective team player - an essential skill in any public service. Once you have completed this course you will have gained the skills, knowledge, and confidence needed to progress successfully into a role in one of these services.

The Public Services are really stressful jobs and you need to be able to respond in a crisis! You will need to respond and not react. Managing your own state is key, which is why we will teach you to be brave and courageous. If you’re planning on joining one of these services and you are the first on scene, you’ll need to be able to think quickly and keep calm under pressure.

My favourite part of Public Services is definitely the practical side of the course. We’re able to get out and do lots of physical activity, whether it is days out at the Fire Service or expeditions in the New Forest in Hampshire.

After your course... Once you have completed one of these specialisms you’ll have gained expert knowledge and fine-tuned your skills so that you are ready to take that next step in making your dreams a reality.

or...

or Our Health, Care, Sport and Public Services courses are geared up to help you secure work after you have finished college. We have been working with key employers in these exciting industries to help shape the things that you learn during your time with us.

Even though our brand new courses are designed to help you secure employment within your dream industry, university is still an option after your studies. There are plenty of higher education and degree level courses out there in the Health, Care, Sport and Public Services industries. You may wish to study degrees in Health, Medical Science or Midwifery.

You will have developed many of the key knowledge, skills, and behaviours that employers are looking for which will make you a prime candidate for employment.

You could become a fully qualified teacher or study child psychology. Perhaps you’d like to study sports science or learn more about analysing performance or you could study degrees in Criminology or Policing studies.

Opportunities may include fulltime employment in a number of areas in your chosen specialism such as a care worker, youth worker, nursery assistant, primary school teacher, fitness instructor, sports coach, join the armed forces, or become an expedition leader.

As we have based our new curriculum on the occupational maps that apprenticeships are built on, there are also opportunities for you to move directly into an apprenticeship after college. Depending on the type of apprenticeship and your chosen employer, you may be able to move directly into a Level 3 or Level 4 apprenticeship in a whole range of specialisms such as Adult Care Work, Learning mentor, Physiotherapy, or Police Intelligence.

What are Specialist courses?

We have a range of specialist courses that have been designed to help you gain the qualifications you need to progress on to our college courses, help you re-engage with education, or help you to build confidence and independence - gaining some valuable skills for life. We have a course that will help you to build your confidence, meet new people, and gain some valuable work experience and employability skills. There are other courses that will help you to become more independent, learn about healthy living, learn how to cook a range of basic recipes, and learn to manage your own money.

For many of these courses, you won’t need any formal qualifications, just the commitment to come to college.

158

We also have courses that will help you to settle back into the college environment, help you to improve your English, maths, and employability skills, and get you involved with work experience and college enrichment activities. Our tutors have years of teaching experience and are experts at helping you to settle into college. They are approachable, friendly, and will be able to provide you with one-to-one support.
