Our college is a mature environment where you will be responsible for your own learning. What you put in will be what you get out. College is very different from school. You’re now in control of what you want to study. You’re in control of how far you push yourself. You’re in control of where you go after college.

Our Evolve Salons hold eco status, which means we are fully committed to looking after the environment and reducing our waste. All of our products are vegan, cruelty-free and don’t contain any harmful chemicals.

You are our number one focus, but we’re also passionate about doing our bit to protect the planet. Over the past few years, we have been installing energy efficient bulbs in all of our buildings, we have increased the number of recycling points across campus for you to recycle and we are committed to reducing the amount of single-use plastic in our canteens and coffee shops.

Are you ready to take action?

But the most significant change we’ve made is taking steps to offset our carbon footprint. We have planted 6,000 hardwood trees to capture at least 60,000 tonnes of CO2.

But that’s not all...

We have created a safe and friendly college environment... Our college is a place where you can feel safe. We have created a friendly, caring, and inclusive environment to help you excel in your studies. Our tutors take the time to get to know you, treat you with respect, and talk to you as an adult. They give you the freedom to take control of your learning, build your independence, express yourself, and encourage you to make a positive difference.

Our tutors boast a wealth of academic excellence and have years of industry experience in their subjects. Before coming into teaching, they completed degrees, masters, and PhDs, to be experts in their field. Others ran their own business and worked for well established companies. A-Level English tutor and published author, Paul Fisher Davies studied his PhD while teaching and writing his first book: Comics as Communication. Our Early Years and Childcare guru, Carol Tomsett (top left) owned and ran a very successful nursery before joining us. Her extensive amount of knowledge in an Early Years setting is invaluable to help prepare our students. Public Services course leader, Carey Bridge (bottom left), has been running our course for over 20 years and has industry contacts in a multitude of services. Before teaching, Carey was part of the UK Border Force at Gatwick Airport, and uses her connections to arrange annual visits so students can get an insight into this protective service.

The learning that you do outside of the classroom...

INSPI We know that the learning you do outside of the classroom can be just as important as the things you learn in it. Industry trips, workshops and guest speakers are essential elements to our courses. That’s why we work hard to make sure these experiences are valuable and the best they can be. Opportunities to visit businesses and organisations related to your subject will help to expand your imagination and inspire you to reach your career goals. Our students have visited some top cities in the UK and around the world to learn about history, culture, and tourism. Our Performing Arts students get to see the bright lights of Broadway as they visit New York to watch shows and take part in singing and dancing workshops. Visiting the Royal Albert Hall is grand enough, but our Music students actually got to perform at the prestigious venue some musicians can only dream of. 20

Our Public Services students are well travelled as they visit London to learn more about the Houses of Parliament, they visit Gatwick Airport to see what goes on behind the scenes, then jet off to Cyprus and New York to see public services in action. Our Sports students enjoy an annual Ski trip to Europe for a week on the slopes. Our Travel tutors say that the best way to learn about the subject is to travel, so our students are lucky enough to have the opportunity to visit lots of tourism businesses in the UK and go to some of the world’s best travel destinations. Most recently, they have been to the Emirates Experience and Barcelona.

All of these experiences inspire our students to reach for more, push themselves, and achieve things they never thought they could.

Parental Guidance.

What is Further Education (FE)?

Choosing the right course

Your young person is about to enter FE and you’ll probably hear this term a lot as they work through their final year of school. FE simply 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, for more academic students, three A-Level subjects. All of these routes are the next step in helping your young person prepare for work or university.

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. There is plenty of help at hand so students can make the right choice. You can book a meeting over the phone, video call, or drop in to see us. 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. To find out more, or book an appointment, scan the QR code.

Find out more and get the ‘Qualifications explained’ by scanning the QR code.

Safety and Wellbeing

Come and Visit

The safety and wellbeing of our students is our top priority. When your young person starts with us, they will be allocated a personal tutor who will be their go-to person for any questions, concerns or problems. Our dedicated Safeguarding teams ensure that your young person is safe and protected. Our Wellbeing mentors provide a safe space to seek advice and support about any issues they may be facing, whether it’s college related or something more personal.

We host a number of open evenings throughout the year at each of our campuses and online! 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. Want to find out more about our open events?

Depending on their grade and the outcome of a short assessment, we’ll be able to enrol students onto the right level of course so they can work towards gaining either a Functional Skills or GCSE qualification. Learn more about qualifications explained by scanning the QR code.

Education for all... We have built a college environment that respects and promotes diversity. We recognise the value that disability, gender, race, sexuality, faith, culture, age and background brings to our college and we strive to produce a work and learning environment that is safe and free from all forms of discrimination.

Additional Learning Support If your young person requires any additional support then our Additional Learning Support (ALS) team can help. They’re an incredibly important part of our college and can help with things such as learning difficulties and disabilities, in-class support, and assistive technology. Learn more about the support we can offer by scanning the QR code.

Financial Support Students joining us from school, aged between 16 and 18, won’t have to pay any course or exam fees. There may be some additional costs for courses such as uniform, materials and equipment or trips, but students may be eligible for a grant or bursary. We can discuss this further during your young person’s interview or even at enrolment. Learn more about the types of financial support available by scanning the QR code.

Travel Getting to us is really easy. Our Lewes campus is along Mountfield Road and is right around the corner from Lewes train station and a short walk from Lewes bus station.

Why should you study A-Levels with us?

Industry Placements, Talks & Trips When you study with us, your learning will also take place outside of the classroom. You’ll benefit from lots of industry placements, guest talks, and industry trips.

You will be able to take advantage of our excellent links with local and national employers to gain Amazing valuable work experience in an industry related to opportunities your studies. Students to help get you have worked in a diverse range of businesses and to university organisations in the private, public and charity sector. These opportunities not only give you valuable hands-on experience, but it also looks great on your CV and UCAS application.

Fantastic Progression

3

We’re a Community

We always welcome universities and industry experts into the college to give talks about their unis, courses, their industry, and to give you an insight where your degree could take you in the future.

4 You will also have the opportunity to get involved with lots of trips throughout the year. We put on coaches to the UCAS fairs in London and Brighton, and our Student Union organises course-related trips throughout the year. Some of our exciting A-Level trips include visits to Law courts, parliament, banks, marketing agencies, and tourist attractions.

30

We have an extremely supportive sixth form with fantastic progression rates to some of the best universities in the country. This means you will have the opportunity to move onto the things that you want to do next.

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 supportive student body, the interaction with the tutors, and the in-depth subject knowledge is the perfect stepping stone to university.

5

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.

UCAS Application Support

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 society, there is plenty to keep you busy.

www.escg.ac.uk

Tutorial System

We can provide academic support in the form of study and revision workshops. These take place throughout the year and more regularly as we approach exams season.

If your goal is to head to university after A-Levels, then we’ll be able to support you with your UCAS application. Our careers advisors are qualified to Level 7 to give you the best careers advice and guidance. Make sure you sign up for our regular UCAS surgeries too. They give you help with setting up your account and writing personal statements.


u

Don’t know what you want to study? We can help! Backwards planning 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, and what subjects you need to study at A-Level to get onto that degree.

Play to your strengths There is nothing wrong with studying the subjects you’re 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 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 demonstrate your ability to learn and retain information.

I met so many great people and learnt so much. I had the best time, and I was quite sad to leave to be honest. I studied Music, Musical Theatre, and Photography and was able to go on some really great trips. I used these experiences to inspire me in my career. For example, photography comes in really handy with getting bits for Instagram and social media. College definitely set me up for what I’m doing now.
