GET INVOLVED. Students’ Voice. The Students’ Voice at East Sussex College is central to providing an exceptional student experience. Our Students’ Voice includes:

Students’ Union. All post 16-year-old students at East Sussex College are automatically members of the National Union of Students (NUS) and as such, members of the College’s Students’ Union.

Course Representatives. To ensure a representative Students’ Voice, each course group, including adult, apprentices and international students, elect two Course Representatives.

Our Students' Union is run by the students, for the students! Student Governors. Student Governors are elected to both the College’s campus-based Local Governing Boards and the College’s Main Governing Board. The role of the Student Governor is different to that of the Course Representative who is required to represent the views of their respective groups. Student Governors provide a student voice, their voice, to the College governing body and respective governance meetings.

Course Representatives represent the views of their fellow students at both the campus-based students councils and their relevant course area curriculum feedback meetings.

PARENTAL GUIDANCE. What is Further Education (FE)? Your young person is getting ready to enter the next stage in their education journey, ‘FE’. FE stands for Further Education, as that is exactly what they are doing after school. This is their chance to specialise in the area or industry that most interests them. This can either be through Vocational courses such as Diplomas and T-Levels, a more hands-on approach through an Apprenticeship, or three A-Level subjects. All of these routes are the next step in helping your young person prepare for work or university. FE is free to all young people starting a course if they are aged 19 or under on 31st August prior to them starting college. However there may be additional costs for kit, uniform and trips.

Come & visit us! We host a number of open events throughout the year at each of our campuses! This is a fantastic chance for you to visit with your young person, have a look around, chat to our tutors and get to know us a little better. Don’t worry if you can’t make it to one of our events, book a campus tour or you can watch our virtual events from the comfort of your own home.

www.escg.ac.uk

Choosing the right course(s) There are many qualifications to choose from at East Sussex College. Your young person may already know what they’d like to study, but don’t worry if they’re still undecided. Our highly qualified team can talk through all the options - looking at things like predicted grades, personal interests, and future goals. Our careers advisors are also on hand to guide and recommend next steps after college.

Safety & Wellbeing. The safety and wellbeing of our students has always been our top priority.

Training Hub

NEW!

Green Training Hub. East Sussex College was selected to establish one of five new decarbonisation academies across Sussex to support the development of skills in retrofitting and green energy installation. We are working in partnership with OHM Energy to do this. The new ESC Training Hub in Eastbourne launches for the 2022/23 academic year. Located at Hampden Retail Park, the centre will support Local Authorities, construction employers, homeowners and businesses to improve insulation and install green energy products in commercial properties and housing. SCAN HERE TO FIND OUT MORE.

www.escg.ac.uk

“OHM brings 20 years’ commercial experience to the project, delivering the training so students can enter the workplace with the knowledge required. We are mindful that there are not enough educated engineers in renewable energy. We bring in our experience to change that.” - Jason Lindfield, Managing Director, OHM Energy. 030 300 39699

Greener sites: Changes to our campuses. Our Carbon Zero project is underway! We have secured Salix grant funds from the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS) to deliver energy-saving projects, with the aim of becoming carbon zero by 2030. Our decarbonisation plan includes a range of opportunities to decrease energy consumption and heat loads, increase on-site renewable generation, and improve carbon performance across our estate. This includes the addition of Ground Source Heat Pumps (Ore Valley, Eastbourne and Lewes) and Air Source Heat Pumps (Station Plaza and Lewes).

WHAT ARE A-LEVELS?

A-levels are perfect for helping you get into university!

Advanced Level qualifications, better known as A-Levels, are two-year courses that are perfect for helping you get into university.

APPRENTICESHIPS - Once you have finished your A-Levels, you could start an Apprenticeship. The introduction of Higher Apprenticeships a couple of years ago, means that you will now have an opportunity to study up to the equivalent level of a Degree.

Most students choose to study three A-Levels or equivalent (such as a combination of A-Levels and BTECs /other Technical and Professional courses). 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.

WORK - Students may be able to find full-time positions in a number of organisations that relate to the subject they have studied, thanks to their work experience placements. In the past, students have gone to work for local banks, accountancy firms, solicitors, and language schools.

What next? Entry Requirements

All of our courses provide fantastic progression opportunities, whether your goal is going away to university or staying local to study your Degree here with us. You may also be considering an Apprenticeship or entering fulltime employment. Our A-Levels give students excellent and varied progression opportunities.

Our general entry requirements to study 3 A-Levels are: 5 GCSEs grade 4-9 including English Language and/or Maths at grade 5. Our general entry requirements to study 4 A-Levels are: 6 GCSEs grade 4-9 including English Language and Maths at grade 6. Subject specific entry criteria may also apply.

Opportunities UNIVERSITY - A-Levels are the most common route to university. If you want to study a degree, it is useful to look ahead at the courses that you are interested in as this often helps you figure out which A-Levels to take. We regularly run UCAS surgeries to give course advice and help you with writing your application and personal statement.

WHAT ARE APPRENTICESHIPS? An Apprenticeship is a real-job, with a real employer, typically working a minimum of 30 hours per week.t is an Apprenticeship?

You will learn on the job and gain a qualification at the same time. Some Apprenticeships are known as day-release where you will come to one of East Sussex College’s campuses to study, typically once a week and the rest of the time you will work with your employer. On the other hand, you may complete a work-based Apprenticeship where you won’t come to college and instead an assessor will visit the workplace every four weeks.

APPRENTICESHIPS. Our Apprenticeships. Apprenticeships are suitable for anyone 16+, that has finished secondary education and lives in the UK. Apprenticeships are suitable for those already in employment, school leavers or adults.

School Leavers. If you are 16 - 18 then you will have to remain in education and an Apprenticeship counts as a form of full-time education. It is a way to break into your desired industry, gain a qualification and gain work experience in your chosen field. As an apprentice you will be paid for your time at work, as well as the time you spend studying.

Adults. Many adults use an Apprenticeship as a way to break into a new industry or build upon their existing skills, in a current job role. You will be able to progress in your career without paying for the qualification and you will be able to sign up to the Apprenticeship scheme regardless of age.

Employed. Many of our existing apprentices are already in employment and approach the college to gain a qualification whilst staying in their existing job role. It can be a way to upskill and gain a nationally recognised qualification, which is beneficial for career development.

An Apprenticeship is a real-job, with a real employer, typically working a minimum of 30 hours per week.

How do I find an Apprenticeship? There are a few ways to find an Apprenticeship, including: Option 1: Find your own employer: You can start with this option at any time if you hope to secure an Apprenticeship. Offering to do some work experience may be a good way forward as you could then try and turn it into an Apprenticeship. Start putting together a CV. If you don’t already have one, start by Googling ‘write my CV’ and you will get lots of ideas. It should be no more than two pages. You will need to find out who the manager/owner of the company is so that your details are sent to the relevant person. We can ring the employer with more information if they would like to take you on. Option 2: Register for the Talent Bank: It may be useful for you to attend a remote Apprenticeship Information Session at East Sussex College, currently running over Zoom. We will run through any questions that you may have and explain Apprenticeships in further detail. We will also keep you on record on our Talent Bank in case any vacancies come up that may be of interest. Option 3: Look on the National Apprenticeship Website: All the live Apprenticeship vacancies are on this website: https://www.gov.uk/apply-apprenticeship You will have to create an account if you want to apply for anything. If you decide to apply you’ll need to complete an application form - fill this in with as much detail as you can as these are used to decide who to shortlist and put forward to employers. Put down any qualifications you already have and be honest about all of the information you include. If you are 16 - 18, we recommend that you apply for a full-time course just in case you can’t secure an Apprenticeship.

KEY FACTS Maths & English.

Train - debt free!

Maths and English Functional Skills will be included alongside the Apprenticeship if you don’t have GCSE grades 4 or above, or Level 2 Functional Skills, regardless of age. You will be asked to provide certificates if you do have GCSEs so we can make you exempt. Functional Skills are very practical qualifications, and the aim is that they apply to your working life and personal life.

As an apprentice you will never be asked to pay towards the cost of the qualification. This means that you will never have to take out a student loan, but you will have the benefits of still gaining a formal qualification.

Earn a salary. With an Apprenticeship you must be paid at least the Minimum National Apprenticeship wage. If you turn 19 in the second year of your Apprenticeship, you must then be paid minimum wage for your age.

How long does an Apprenticeship last? All the College’s Apprenticeships last between 1-4 years, depending on your chosen Apprenticeship. Any approved prior learning you may have may also mean the programme length is reduced, depending on what you can evidence and experience in the subject of interest.

An apprentice is a real job. You will be employed, with a contract of employment provided by an employer. The contract of employment should last at least the duration of the Apprenticeship and you cannot be self-employed. Because you are employed you will benefit from holiday pay and sick leave and are subject to statutory employment rights and responsibilities as per any person of employed status.

Off-the-job training. If you are employed for at least 30 hours per week, six hours of your working week will be spent on training. Training will be made up of lots of elements, but essentially you will be asked to record any activities where you are learning a skill relevant to the job role. Forms of training include day-release to college, putting together your portfolio of evidence, written work, meetings with your assessor, observing other members of staff (shadowing), being mentored by other members of staff, competitions, mock assessments, industry events or conferences and so on. You will also be paid for this training.

Gain a qualification. At the end of the Apprenticeship, you will receive a certificate confirming that you have the relevant skills, knowledge and behaviours for your specific job role. We offer a range of Apprenticeships at different levels. The level you complete will be based upon your responsibilities within your day-to-day job role. Many of our apprentices start at a lower level and may complete more than one Apprenticeship, as they work their way up with a company and into higher level education.
