If you’re a sports student, you’ll love our partnership with our neighbours, Wave Leisure, to offer you industry placements and additional sports leadership and lifeguarding qualifications.

Lewes is our stand-out campus for A-Level courses. We have a strong track record of helping our students get into some of the top universities in the country, and our students always tell us how friendly and welcoming our sixth form is. We’re certain that you will meet new life-long friends, gain independence, and achieve fantastic grades.

Performing & Visual Arts: Lewes is all about the creative industries. We excel in performing and visual arts thanks to our purpose-built Performing Arts Centre, which is home to our Music, Dance, and Drama subjects. If you study one of these courses, you will have the opportunity to excel and collaborate with the likes of the Royal Opera House, the Theatre Royal Brighton, and Brighton Dome and Festival. Our vision for the future will include new performance spaces and studios - which means our offer will get even better! We have a culture of excellence, and over the last few years, our students have achieved top prizes in national competitions in the Royal Opera House Design Challenge. 5


“Before I came to Lewes, I had a very clear goal for what I wanted to do in the future, but after studying my A-Levels here, it has really opened my eyes and my mind to what is going on in the world. This college has given me skills, ideas, and confidence to express myself and strive to make a positive difference.” 6

WE’RE GIVING YOU THE OPPORTUNITIES TO FUEL YOUR AMBITION. No matter which course you choose, we will give you opportunities to complete meaningful work placements, allowing you to put everything you have learnt into practice - in real situations.

We are constantly building new partnerships. Recently, we placed over 15 Health and Social Care students into local hospitals so they can get first-hand experience in operating theatres.

We have hundreds of contacts across a multitude of industries, so you can ignite your imagination and be well on your way to starting that dream career.

Are you ready to create new ambitions?

Our Childcare students enjoy first and second-year placements in local schools and nurseries across the region to understand what it takes to become a practitioner. Our Sports students take advantage of our partnership with neighbouring Wave Leisure to help run fitness classes and achieve lifeguard qualifications, while our Uniformed Protective Services students help organise and run Safety in Action week. Animation & Illustration and Art & Design students had the opportunity to develop ideas for the redevelopment of the Phoenix industrial estate in Lewes. They came up with 3D models, designs for ‘parklets’ (small green spaces that include seating and bike parking) and presented their ideas to a live audience before the best ones were selected and built over the summer.

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!

Cliffe Building is home to our vibrant and successful Sixth Form. We have comfortable classrooms and common rooms, libraries filled with resources, new science labs, and fully-equipped art studios to help you achieve academic excellence.

Solomon Fitzpatrick

Our Evolve Salons are also in Cliffe and help prepare you for a career in the industry. Our Lewes salons also hold Eco status, which means we care about the environment and only use products that don’t contain any nasty chemicals. Our Performing Arts building is a purpose-built space that offers you the opportunity to train and rehearse in Theatre, Dance and Music. We have studios fitted with full-length mirrors, lighting, and excellent sound systems. We also have our own theatre, which allows our budding actors the opportunity to put on a grand performance at the end of the year.

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 only get better over the next three years! Our classrooms, studios, gyms, and salons all mirror real-life working environments, which means you will be able to learn and hone your skills.

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.

Safety and Well-being

Come and Visit

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.

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.

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.

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 Lewes campus is located right around the corner from Lewes train station and a short walk from Lewes bus station.

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.

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.

“My time at college was amazing. I got to go on some really great trips, which have given me lots of inspiration for my music career.” 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.

“I have new goals and ambitions thanks to the experience and life skills I’ve gained while at college and on my industry placement.” I was really well prepared for my placement thanks to the course. Then, during my placement I gained better life skills and created new career goals and ambitions. I went from being really nervous and thinking I wasn’t ready for the world of work, to not wanting to leave, and realising that I had a purpose. TIEGAN COPPARD HE ALTH & SO CIAL CARE STUDENT

EDUCATION & EARLY YEARS Early Years Educators play crucial roles in supporting young children and their parents. Women dominate the industry, and it is thought that men only make up 2% of the workforce. Our Early Years courses enable you to learn a huge range of knowledge and skills in working with young children and education. Practical learning plays a big part in this course. There will be plenty of opportunities for you to put your learning into practice through industry placements, projects, and trips. You will have the chance to visit local nurseries, primary schools and even travel abroad to see Early Years practices in action. Our tutors are fully qualified professionals in the industry. They have been practising and teaching for a number of years and are passionate about passing on their knowledge and pushing boundaries. Their own experiences from running nurseries and working with children from all over the world means that you will have an enriching experience. They continually develop themselves to ensure that their knowledge and teaching is as up to date as it can be.

AFTer you’VE MADE YOUR application: Can’t make up your mind?

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.
