Hello, and welcome to Sussex Downs College. As the recently appointed Principal I am both delighted and excited to welcome you to our part-time course guide. Whilst Sussex Downs College is proud of its commitment to full-time 16-19 students, it is more than an FE College for school leavers. We offer learning opportunities to adults of all ages, with courses designed to update and develop a skill area, help you change career path and improve your job prospects. Or, quite simply, you may be looking to pursue a new course as a hobby or be looking to meet new people. Whatever your reason, here in this guide you will find a very wide range of courses and qualifications on offer. We also outline our support services, the facilities available and details of course fees. Finance needn’t be a barrier to gaining new skills and for some students who meet the criteria, fees can be reduced. Our part-time courses have enrolment dates throughout the year, meaning you can start your dream course as early or as late as you would like. Study with us and you will gain a nationally recognised qualification which will help you to move forward in your dream career. We cater for all abilities, so whether you are a complete beginner, or are looking to build on what you already know, you will find something to suit you. And, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, or need more information on a course listed here, speak to our Student Services Team, who are here to help. Did you know: at Sussex Downs you can take a degree, or even a post graduate qualification, validated by the University of Brighton? If you are looking to change career, our Recruitment Service team are here to help. Our relationship with local and national employers will help to highlight the opportunities available to you after your studies. Not only that, at Sussex Downs College you will receive support to refresh your job search skills and interview techniques, as well as industry-specific training to help you re-enter the job market.

ADVANCED LEARNING YOU are YOUR

BEST INVESTMENT

value your

FUTURE

No matter what stage of life you’re at, the opportunity to study has never been more within your reach. The Government’s nonmeans tested 24+ Advanced Learning Loan means anybody over the age of 24 can improve their qualifications on a ‘buy now, pay later’ basis. The College offers support in applying for the loan to help pay towards the costs of its advanced courses at Level 3 or 4 – which include A Levels, Access to Higher Education, Diplomas and Certificates. Receiving the loan doesn’t depend on household income or credit history and repayments won’t start until 2016 – and only then if your earnings are above £21,000 per year. If you’re interested in finding out more about Advanced Learning Loans, our fast facts will tell you all you need to know.

HOW MUCH MONEY CAN I APPLY FOR? It depends on the type of course you take and the cost of the course. The minimum loan amount is £300.

HOW IS THE LOAN PAID? The loan will be paid directly to the College once you have attended your course for two weeks or more.

HOW MANY LOANS CAN I APPLY FOR? You can apply for up to four loans, but you can only take out one loan at a time. You can’t get a loan to do another similar level course, for instance, two at Level 3, except for A Levels.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM ELIGIBLE? 1. You must be over 24 years old on the day you start the course. 2. You must be living in the UK on the day the course starts and have been a UK resident for three years prior to starting the course. 3. The course must be an approved Level 3 or 4 course. 4. The course must be delivered by an eligible provider such as Sussex Downs College.

HOW DO I APPLY? 1. You can apply either online at www.gov.uk/advanced-learning-loans or by post now. You can apply for a course that has already started after that date but not after a course has finished. 2. Applications can take up to five weeks to process but you can track your application. 3. You will need to know your National Insurance Number as no monies can be paid without this. 4. You will also need another source of identity, such as a valid passport or birth certificate.

WHAT ABOUT REPAYING THE LOAN? 1. You will not begin loan repayments until April 2016 - even if your course finishes before then. 2. Repayments of the loan, plus interest, will start once you reach the income threshold of £21,000. If your income should drop below this, repayments will be halted until the £21,000 threshold is reached again. 3. If you are self-employed, you will make repayments as part of your self-assessment in your tax return.

WHAT IF I CHANGE MY MIND ABOUT STUDYING ONCE I HAVE TAKEN OUT THE LOAN? If you leave or change your course after the initial two weeks you will be liable to pay the full amount of the course fees for the programme.

WHAT IF I WANT TO PROGRESS TO HIGHER EDUCATION EVENTUALLY? If you apply for a loan to cover your Access to Higher Education course and then successfully complete a degree, you will not have to pay back your Advanced Learning Loan – it will be written off. To find out more about 24+ Advanced Learning Loans and which courses at Sussex Downs College are eligible for support, contact Student Services on 030 300 39551.

Understanding Levels Sussex Downs College offers a wide variety of programmes.

Some lead to nationally recognised qualifications at different levels, the details of which can be difficult to get to grips with. Our friendly staff in Student Services are always available to give advice and guidance, but for a brief overview of how qualifications compare, take a look at the chart below, showing the different levels and what they can lead to.

In some cases you will need to start at Level 1 or 2 to ensure you gain the background knowledge and skills you need. In others, as long as you have achieved a certain level of qualification, e.g GCSE at grade C, you can go on to higher study. If you are employed in a role that requires higher level skills and competence, you may be able to ‘jump’ a level.

Human Health and Physiology GCSE This course enables students to gain an informed insight into how the human body works, the structures that make it work and how to keep the body healthy. Key aspects of the specification include nutrition, blood and circulation and defence against disease. A wide range of material will be covered in only two hours per week, therefore a high level of commitment from students is required to succeed. Integral to the subject is the development and use of practical skills relevant to the study of science. This course fully meets the needs of those requiring GCSE Science (for example, for teacher training purposes). Please note that this is an examination course.
