#weareEscg we specialise in helping you take your next steps towards your career. We work hard to ensure that we are the leading college in: Health, Care & Sport:

Construction

& Engineering:

Creative Industries:

Our Health, Care and Sport courses, based at Station Plaza, are some of the best in the South East. Our expert tutors have an incredible amount of knowledge. Some still work in the industry, which means their knowledge is always current and up to date. When you combine that with our pioneering and exciting industry placements, like working in the operating theatres of the Conquest Hospital, you will be able to learn all the key knowledge, skills, and behaviours you need for a successful career in the industry.

Our outstanding facilities at Ore Valley and the Automotive Training Centre make it the obvious choice if you’re looking to study Construction, Engineering, or Motor Vehicle subjects. Ore Valley features 7,000sq ft of realistic working environments, with livebuild areas and workshops that mirror those you will find out in the industry. We’re really lucky to have some of the best engineering workshops in the area, packed with lathes, milling machines and welding bays.

Our Creative courses have everything you need to explore your subject and let your creativity flow. Facilities include printing presses, pottery wheels, kilns, metal workshops, photography studios, a darkroom, sewing machines, and the latest Adobe software for animation and digital work. We’re really proud of our long and successful history of Art and Design courses in Hastings and give you the chance to stay with us for another three years to gain BA (Hons) degrees in creative subjects.

...WHERE YOU WILL FEEL INCLUDED AS PART OF OUR COMMUNITY. 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 a young 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. All of our tutors are incredibly talented and have years of industry knowledge and experience that they are passionate about sharing to help your learning come to life.

Music alumi Arjuna Dianto praises the college for their support and encouragement.

Business student Tina Yang praises the Mental Health support available at the college.

They also strive to make college an inclusive and enjoyable place to be. When football player Marcus Rashford became involved in the campaign for free school meals during lockdown, Hastings Chef de Cuisine, Robert Donachie, shared budget-friendly recipes, which included everyday ingredients found in the cupboards at home, with students and their families. 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.”

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 and how far you push yourself. You’re in control of where you go after college.

MVULA CARBON CAPTURE PROJECT 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! Along with offsetting emissions, we are taking significant steps in reducing the amount of energy we use.

“This is a really exciting and important step for the college group as we take action to reduce our carbon footprint.” - Rebecca Conroy, CEO.

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 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.

Come and Visit

Safety and Well-being

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.

The safety and well-being 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 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.

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 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. As an ESC student, your young person is expected to treat others with respect.

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. Scan the QR to find out more.

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. Scan the QR to find out more.

Travel Getting to us is really easy. Our Station Plaza campus is right next to Hastings train and bus stations. Our Ore Valley campus is a very short walk from Ore Valley train station and our Automotive Training Centre is on the main bus route along the ridge.

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. You may also be considering an Apprenticeship or entering full-time employment. Our A-Levels, vocational courses (or a mixed study programme combining the two) gives you excellent and varied progression opportunities.

www.escg.ac.uk


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,

S.

and language schools.

MOTOR VEHICLE Over the next five years (2021-26), the Motor Vehicle Maintenance and Repair industry is expected to grow (Source: IBISWorld Industry Market Research).

Green and renewable technologies are growing at a rapid rate too, which means there is plenty of opportunity for employment in this industry. Our motor vehicle courses will provide you with everything you need to become a highly-skilled individual in this sector. We have dedicated motor vehicle workshops at the Automotive Training Centre, along Ivy House Lane, just north of Hastings town centre. Our two large garage spaces are kitted out with high-tech, industry-standard equipment, the types you’d expect to see in all top vehicle repair workshops. As well as gaining hands-on experience at college, you’ll also be able to understand the industry and put your skills to the test during industry talks and work placements. Our tutors have years of industry experience and have worked on thousands of different vehicles. They also create exciting opportunities - our students recently had the chance to repair and renovate a 1986 Robin Reliant so that it could enter into a charity rally across Europe!

Course cancellations

If you can’t decide on a course, don’t panic. You can apply for more than one course on your application form. You will have the chance to discuss your options with us at interview. We also offer bookable careers guidance appointments for you to explore your options. The most important thing is you enrol on the course that’s right for you we are here to help you.

In the unlikely event that your course is cancelled, we will do our best to find you an alternative course to help you succeed in your career ambitions. Where possible, any payments towards the cost of your course can be transferred to your new course. Any refunds will be credited by bank transfer (BACS) to your bank account.

Interviews If we have all the information we need on your application form, we will invite you to an interview. The sooner you submit your application, the sooner you’ll receive an interview. You will receive a letter/email telling you what you will need to bring with you on your allocated day and time. As a general rule, interviews are held weekly. The interview is a good opportunity to find out more about your chosen subject(s) and will give you more information and make sure you are considering the right course for your future. Your parents /carers are welcome to come with you.

Offers After your interview, you will be given written confirmation of your offer and exam grades (or other requirements) you need to secure your place. Once you have an offer, you will continue to receive information about starting college and your journey to an exciting future will begin. After your exam results in August, you will be invited to attend enrolment in late August or early September – this is when you officially become an East Sussex College student! You will need to bring in your exam results and we’ll contact you to tell you exactly when you start your course.
