“The college courses I had my heart set on were perhaps regarded as ‘less academic’, meaning they weren’t on some top universities’ wish lists. My tutor told me, ‘Forget their list. This is about you,’ which is some of the best advice I’ve been given. I made it to the London School of Economics!” 6

WE HAVE CREATED A SAFE AND FRIENDLY COLLEGE ENVIRONMENT...


...WHERE YOU WILL FEEL INCLUDED AS PART OF OUR COMMUNITY. Our college is a place where you can feel safe. We have created an inclusive, multicultural environment, welcoming students of various cultures, beliefs and backgrounds. 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.

Performing Arts alumni Amita Suman says encouragement to achieve without limitation is what spurred her to carve out a successful acting career. “My teacher told me I could play whatever role I wanted, without being limited to a stereotypical Asian character.” She now stars in the No.1 Netflix series, Shadow & Bone.

Alumni Josh Babarinde, joined the ESC College Board in 2021, after running an award-winning business and volunteering as a youth worker. He now strives to support young adults in the area, saying, “At ESC, I had great teachers who believed in me. Since college, I’ve been to the US Embassy, met entrepreneurs, and even had the chance to work with ex-gang members in L.A. I grew up in Hampden Park, an underestimated part of town. But it’s packed full of great people, innovative businesses and a strong community spirit. I want to build on this and help to create opportunities for more local folk to thrive.”

MINDFULNESS AND Well-being PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN KEEPING YOU MOTIVATED. We are here to look after you and support you. Your safety and overall well-being is our top priority, which is why we have dedicated teams to help you cope with college life and remain motivated throughout your studies.

Our highly trained team meets the Matrix Standard for providing excellent Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) and Careers support. We’re serious about mental health and wellbeing and want you to feel good. We host a range of events, such as our Stress Awareness Month activities, to help you relax and focus before busy revision and exam time.

On the surface level, support comes from your tutor and peers (your own group of friends or your Students’ Union). If you require additional help with literacy or numeracy, need some 1-to-1 support or any extra resources, then our Additional Learning Support (ALS) team is here for you. Our Well-being Team is also on hand to provide confidential help and support with any struggles you may have with college work, college life, or your personal life.

Most recently, Uniformed Protective Services tutor, Zoe Carroll, who is also a fully qualified NLP practitioner, offered Maths & English students an insight into mindfulness and life coaching to help them prepare for their exams. So whatever you’re thinking of doing after college, we’ll be able to help you find the thing that is right for you.

We are delighted to be working with the Turing Scheme, the UK’s global programme to study and work abroad. It was recently announced that 40,000 students will receive funding to study and work abroad on the scheme, and this includes ESC students! We are proud to be one of the 363 successful applications made by universities, schools, FE and training providers across the UK to take part in the scheme. The Turing Scheme gives participants the opportunity to benefit from working and studying abroad, inspiring students to pursue their career goals, develop new skills and gain international experience. What’s more, nearly half of the places are allocated to those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Students will be inspired to achieve their career goals as they develop their soft skills, language skills and get a better understanding of other cultures.  We are excited to offer students this enriching and exciting opportunity, and with the easing of lockdown restrictions both at home and abroad, we hope to be offering our students more in the way of international trips very soon!

We’re revolutionising our college to better equip you with the skills you need to succeed.


We’re one of the select few colleges in the country to offer T-Levels.

DID YOU KNOW?

Our incredible music facilities feature eight recording studios with industry-standard mixing desks (the same ones that Ed Sheeran has at home). We also have our own performance space, perfect for working on performances, recording albums and shooting music videos. Our Construction Centre is a real-life working environment and set up just like the environments you will find out in the industry. We have a dedicated Brickwork Centre, workshops for Carpentry, Plumbing, Painting and Decorating, and Engineering. Our facilities for Motor Vehicle are some of the best in the South East. Our Eastbourne campus is the only place where you can study a Body Repair course and perfect your painting skills in our purpose-built spray booth.

We are leading the way in a new era of education! We have evolved and developed our courses and now our estate too so that you can learn the essential skills you need for your future. Everything we do is to make sure you get the knowledge and skills in your chosen subject, because this is our passion. We maximise these possibilities with our exceptional facilities - which will get even better over the next three years. Our classrooms, workshops, kitchens, studios, and salons all mirror real-life working environments, which means you will be able to learn and hone your skills. Eversley House is the place to be if you have a creative flair. The building is set up to offer you everything they need to explore and experiment. In the art studios, you’ll be able to work with a huge range of resources to create paintings, pottery, or clothing.

Our facilities are already improving following a £1.2m investment earlier this year. We are relocating our A-Level courses to buildings at the heart of the campus. We are also investing in the redevelopment of the Eastbourne Sports Park where you will be based if you study Sport or Uniformed Protective Services with us. You’ll also have exclusive access to our 400-metre athletics track, a huge indoor sports hall, approved by the Lawn Tennis Association, and a 3G all-weather pitch. We will also be moving our Hair and Beauty salons to the main building at the front of the college, making the commercial venture easily accessible and visible to clients. Our future estates plan means a better education and overall student experience.

George Tenywa, Mvule seedling supplier Mvule trees are the key tropical hardwood species in our tree planting project.

www.escg.ac.uk


...AND BE PASSIONATE ABOUT THE THINGS YOU BELIEVE IN. We’re passionate about empowering you so you can take action, stand up for the things you believe in, and strive to be the best you can be. We’re also passionate about doing our bit to protect the planet, and we’re grateful to have proactive students, striving to do the same. In 2020, we signed up to the Mvula Carbon Capture Project, run by United Nations Association, where we pledge to offset our carbon emissions by planting a mixture of 3,000 of tropical hardwood trees in Uganda each year. The Mvule tree can capture an exceptional amount of CO2 over 80 years. As a college group, we produce 5,800 tonnes of CO2 per year, so our yearly plantation of trees will comfortably offset our carbon emissions each year. As of 2021 we are planting an extra 750 trees per year to offset our historic carbon emissions at a rate of 25% per annum! “This is a really exciting and important step for the college group as we take action to reduce our carbon footprint.” - Rebecca Conroy, CEO & Principal. Along with offsetting emissions, we are taking significant steps in reducing the amount of energy we use.

We have secured a £3.9m grant from the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS) to support us in achieving net-zero carbon, reducing our impact on the environment. Our de carbonisation 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. We are committing £1.25m for new windows and roof insulation, Ground Source Heat Pumps, solar, LEDs and Building Energy Management Systems (BEMs).

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 via theoretical and typical classroom based learning or 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.

Our dedicated Safeguarding teams ensure that your young person is safe and protected. Our Well-being 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. Scan the QR to find out more.

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. Scan the QR to find out more.

Education for all... We strive to build 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.

Progress your way 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.

University A-Levels are the most common way of getting into 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.

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.

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,

“There are lots of reasons why I like this course. The tutors are really nice and friendly. They’ve always helped me learn if I don’t know, and it’s never been a problem if I don’t know. They’ve been a great motivation.” The lessons are great, and I’m able to work on other projects that further educate me on welding and spray-painting.

INCLUSIVE LEARNING

Scan here to find out more about Inclusive Learning Courses at ESC

All young people in our local communities have the right to a good quality of life and to join a college course which will give them the skills, knowledge, behaviours, and support to successfully progress into a more independent adulthood. The Inclusive Learning team will work closely with each young person and their family to plan an individual pathway and set aspirational goals for achievement, which will be celebrated throughout the year. Most young people on an Inclusive Learning course will have an Education Health and Care Plan and some of them will require support and therapy which is written into their EHCP. Our specialist team of curriculum, therapy and support staff will celebrate and build on the strengths of every young person whilst ensuring that all support aims to increase independence and confidence. Our courses are intended to prepare young people for adulthood and start them on a pathway to life, independence, and the world of work.


Sensory Learning for Life and Independence

Step Up Level One

Sensory Learning for Life and Independence supports and challenges young people with a diverse range of inclusion needs who benefit from a sensory approach to learning. Students are supported by a dedicated team of specialist staff in a safe learning environment and will have opportunities to achieve a qualification, make friends, develop relationships and engage with the community.

Step Up Level One supports and challenges young people who are not yet ready to access a full-time vocational study programme at college due to a diverse range of learning, social, emotional and inclusion needs. Some students will have an education, health, and care plan, require wraparound support or small group teaching to successfully prepare for progression onto a full-time level 2 course, an apprenticeship or the world of work. Students will have the opportunity to experience learning in different vocational subjects, as well as community projects and work placements.

Supported Learning for Life, Independence and Work Supported Learning for Life, Independence and Work supports and challenges young people with a range of inclusion needs such as learning difficulties, disabilities, and Autism Spectrum. Students are supported by a dedicated team of specialist staff in their own learning environment which has the additional benefit of being based on and having full access to a college campus.

Project SEARCH Project SEARCH is a one year supported internship programme for young people aged 18 to 25 who have an education, health and care plan. The course is based at The Eastbourne Hospital which gives the young people the opportunity to gain and develop work related skills, knowledge and behaviour whilst they are on placement in three different hospital departments. Job coaches and work mentors ensure that any barriers to accessing a work placement are removed and that the learners receive the right balance of support and challenge which they need to get ready for employment. On graduation, some students have been successful in gaining paid employment at the hospital whilst others find work in their local community.

Each student will be supported to make decisions and develop skills for adult life such as going shopping for food, using public transport, and managing money. Each student will achieve a qualification and will have opportunities to take part in enterprise events, a work placement and or voluntary work in the local community. Through the combination of practical activities and classroom learning our students will develop their communication and teamwork as well the skills, knowledge, and behaviour which they will need for the world of work. At the right time, young people are will be supported to think about their future and choices after college.

All learners will be supported to improve their maths and English skills as part of their programme and will be able to take a Functional Skills qualification if it is right for them.
