What is Further Education (FE)?

Which qualification is right for my son/daughter?

FE covers a wide range of education which goes beyond what has been achieved in primary and secondary education. Typically, FE includes: A-Levels, Apprenticeships, Vocational qualifications, and Foundation Learning. It also provides the foundation to Higher Education including Degrees and Higher Apprenticeships.

There are lots of qualifications to choose from at Sussex Coast College Hastings. Knowing which one is right can be a tricky decision. We have a dedicated team to help you with this choice and to discuss the available options. For more information, call 01424 458475, email info@sussexcoast.ac.uk or drop in to see us.

How will I be involved?

How does my son/ daughter apply to college?

You will be kept informed of your child’s progress through regular Parent Consultation Evenings. We also host a Parents’ Voice session where you will be invited to give us your views on all aspects of college life. You can also contact tutors directly to discuss any issues during term time.

4

Your child can apply for more than one course and have more than one interview. There are 4 ways to apply, with the most popular being through UCAS Progress (through school). The other ways are online, by post or in person. We except applications until September.

Can I visit the college before my son/daughter applies? We have open evenings throughout the year for you to find out what our College has to offer. These events give you the opportunity to explore the campuses, check out the facilities, meet the tutors and talk to current students.

What happens at the start of college? Our Induction Days provide a further opportunity for students to have a successful transition from school to college. Students are provided with the opportunity to tour the college buildings, meet other students, and get to know tutors and other members of staff who are on hand to support their learning.

Did you achieve a Grade 3 or lower at GCSE in Maths and/ or English?

Are you 16-18 years old and have completed your GCSEs?

If yes, you will be automatically enrolled on to either Functional Skills or GCSE to study English and/or maths, alongside your chosen subject.

A-Level Courses

Maths and English GCSE

Don’t worry if you don’t achieve a grade 4 at GCSE in English and/or maths at school, we can help you. If you achieved a grade 3 at GCSE in either English or maths you will be automatically enrolled onto our GCSE programme. Our specialist tutors will help you achieve a higher grade with Sussex Coast College Hastings.

Functional Skills

If you achieved below a grade 3 in your English and maths GCSE, Functional Skills will become a part of student life to help you achieve a higher grade. The government developed the Functional Skills study programme to help you achieve the fundamental skills in English and maths to help you work in a business environment. The skills taught are designed to be used in real-life situations. Functional Skills is a standalone qualification.

If you’re academic, enjoy studying and thrive under exam conditions then A-Levels might be for you. We have a suite dedicated to A-Levels and understand their value in helping you to get a place at University.

Vocational Courses

You’ll be able to learn all the skills you need to work in your chosen industry, while being assessed through course work and practical tasks.

Student Union Run by the students, for the students! By becoming a Sussex Coast College Student you will automatically become part of our Student Union. Our Student Union is run by our elected Student President who partakes in monthly Committee meetings with our Governors and Principal. The Union works to improve all aspects of College life for all students. Whether that’s through social events, political campaigns or raising awareness for local or national issues, our union at SCCH is here for you.

So how do I become part of the Union? It’s simple! Everyone who is a current student is automatically part of the Union but if you feel you want to be more proactive within the Union, then you could stand for an executive role on the committee. This is a great opportunity where you get to build up confidence and develop various skills in teamwork, leadership and organisation. In addition to the Students’ Union, you could apply to become a Student Governor. This is where you will sit alongside the Student President on the Board of Governors at Corporation meetings and will be able to give firsthand insight into the experience of being a student at SCCH.

Student Ambassadors

Whatever your goals, the Get Active Programme will help you achieve them.

Becoming a Student Ambassador is your chance to tell others about your time at SCCH.

Duke of Edinburgh Award

You can apply to become a SCCH Ambassador and take part in speaking at school assemblies, supporting at College events and undertaking surveys and feedback sessions.

We have a long and successful history of running the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award and will again be running the popular course starting in September.

Student Voice

You will achieve your Award by completing a personal programme of activities in four sections - Volunteering, Physical, Skills, and Expedition.

Student Voice within the college ensures students views are heard and acted upon.

You’ll find yourself helping people and the community, getting fitter, developing skills, and going on an expedition! Ask your tutor for more information.

Do you want to represent your fellow classmates? Then why not become a student representative and attend faculty student forums. This is your chance to make changes to your course and College.

Every apprentice has been an enthusiastic candidate and an asset to us. We always get great support from the college team and I would recommend them to any local company.”

“The Engineering courses at Sussex Coast College provide learners with an excellent range of skills and attributes which are essential for meeting our workforce needs for now and the future.”

“Modern building techniques such as timber frame construction, require a highly skilled and innovative workforce to preserve the sustainability of the building project.

Top Tip

Top Tip

Do your uni research!

You know you want to go to university, but you don’t know what you want to study

Before deciding what to study with us, research your A-Level subjects and universities you’d like to go to. Some degree courses require certain A-Levels to get on to the course. By doing this you will have a goal to aim for and stay focused. A great website to use is university.which.co.uk.

You’re not the only one! Taking certain facilitating subjects will keep your course options wide open. You can always ask our tutors for advice. Remember it is important to study subjects you are interested in otherwise you may not enjoy your experience.

Did you know?

Did you know?

We offer degrees and other Higher Education courses that you can progress onto

A Higher Apprenticeship is an alternative to a degree.

We have many students who progress onto our own degree courses. The University Centre Hastings boasts its own facilities on the fifth floor of our Station Plaza Campus as well as an Engineering, Construction and IT wing at our Ore Valley Campus.

24

28 | Student Support

Higher Apprenticeships are level 4,5,6 & 7. Higher and degree apprentices typically split their time between college/university and the workplace. Apprentices achieve a full Bachelor’s or Master’s degree as a core component of the apprenticeship. On a Degree Apprenticeship, you will be tested on your academic learning, as well as your wider skills and ability to do the job.

Tutorial System 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 enrolled at the Sixth Form, you will be assigned a tutor. The tutor assigned to you will be aligned with your academic programme, and will therefore be able to support you through your studies.

Academic Support At the Sixth Form we provide academic support in the form of study workshops. These enable you to focus on developing your skills and knowledge in a specific subject area. The workshops tend to be allocated in free periods during the week so that you are able to attend. The Sixth Form works in partnership with the Learning Resource Centre to provide study skills sessions. These sessions focus on developing the transferable skills you need to succeed in examinations, for example focusing on revision methods and examination technique.

A-Levels

We pride ourselves in our ability to provide outstanding support for all our students through our Academic Support and Tutorial System. We want you to stand out from the crowd, so take advantage of our Career Development Programme and UCAS Application Support. Share

Career Development Programme Our Career Development Programme ensures that as well as developing academic excellence, you’ll be able to make informed decisions about your next steps, whether that is into university or into work. The Sixth Form has established contacts with a multitude of employers, from a variety of backgrounds. You can take part in placements in whichever industry you’re interested in. We have opportunities ranging from working in the creative industries here in Hastings, to working in finance in the City of London.

UCAS Application Support After following the Career Development Programme during your first year, you’ll start to have an idea about the type of degree that you want to study. From the end of the first year you will be supported through your UCAS application by your personal tutor. Through our links with the University of Brighton and Compact, you will receive expert support on how to complete your application and also receive information in regards to any other questions you may have about student finance and bursary applications.

Transferable skills are essential in all employment. You may decide to change jobs a number of times during your career, whether it is a change of role or complete change of industry. At the Sixth Form, you’ll learn all the essential skills that employers look for in potential employees. So being flexible and having skills such as attendance and punctuality, good communication skills, and leadership qualities, are essential to ensure employability. As part of the Sixth Form Pathway Plus scheme, not only will you develop these skills you will have the opportunity to learn more about careers and progression within your chosen sector.

fore you choose your A-Levels...

Do you know what university you want to go to and what you want to study?

Do you roughly know what you want to study but not what university?

Great! First thing you need to do before deciding which A-Levels to study is look at your chosen University course online and its requirements.

Great! It might be a good idea just to look at some universities online and the courses they offer to get an idea of what A-Levels you may need to apply for.

Roughly match your A-Level choice to those requirements. Use the required grades as your goals through the next two years, and we will help to keep you motivated to achieve them.

Getting an idea of what qualifications you need to apply for good university courses should give you an idea about what A-Levels to choose. This should also help you start to think about your options and inform your tutor about what you want to achieve and how they can guide you in the right direction.

Remember, be open to change as two years is a long time and you may change your mind about your chosen university. But don't worry, our tutors will help and guide you.

You know you want to go to university but you don’t know where or what you want to study?

You don’t know if you want to go to university but you want to study A-Levels?

Don’t worry! Firstly you are only trying to decide what A-Levels to study University is the next step.

University isn’t for everyone. If you decide not to go after your two years with us, that's fine! A-Levels are still highly regarded by employers and you could go onto an Apprenticeship to further your study.

However, researching universities and their courses will really help you get an idea of what will be expected of you. When choosing your A-Levels think about facilitating subjects - these will keep your university options wide open! Just ask our tutors for advice. During the next two years with us we will help you decide what is best for you through tutor and careers guidance.

A-Levels

Think Progression! During your time with us, we will support and offer advice to help you to make decisions about what you want to do next.

A-Levels provide you with lots of opportunities. After your two years with us you may decide that you don't want to go to university. You may consider an Apprenticeship. You can now study Apprenticeships to Level 7. Many large companies are now hiring Apprentices - do your research!

I’m aiming for a career in graphic design and am looking to go to either the Slade, Goldsmiths, or Glasgow – really high achieving Uni’s – that is where I want to be!

Fine Art, Graphic Design & Politics School: Fitzalan High School (Cardiff) I moved from Cardiff to Hastings as this College has a really good reputation for art! It was totally worth it because I love it here. The teachers are fantastic, they will always encourage you to keep doing what you’re doing to find your own way. They’re great role models too; good at giving advice and really good at helping us achieve the grades we need. I want to continue on to the Foundation in Art and Design course as it has a really great reputation for getting so many students into prestigious universities. So my plan is to complete this course and go on to study Fine Art at either Goldsmiths, Glasgow or Slade School of Art.

Before I came here I was thinking about going into Radiology! But now I have experience in these three A-Levels I want to go to University and study either Photography or Media Studies. I want my career to become something to do with cameras, photographs or film, so coming here has really helped me choose a path!

My choice to throw myself in the deep end by coming here without my school friends has built my confidence. This College is much more mature than school and everyone is treated equally - everyone has different styles but no one judges them or even cares! This is great as everyone is so nice to each other and the tutors are so nice too!

French, Maths, Physics & Economics I am from Uganda, and came to Hastings in September to study A-Levels. The College is really different to anything we have in Uganda â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it is such a beautiful building, when I first walked in I thought it was a shopping mall! I love Economics because I get a good understanding of the world. My teacher is so nice and encourages my class to work together. All of my classes are a lot smaller than in my old school in Uganda. All of my teachers here remember my name and always say hello and ask me if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m ok. The best thing about the College is the LRC because it is a great place where I can study after class. I am hoping to go to either MIT or Stanford University to study Automotive Engineering or perhaps something to do with Robotics. I want to work for a global car manufacturer like Toyota or Mercedes.

Geography, Economics and English Previous School: Rye College The college is really easy to get to. I live in Peasmarsh, not too far away from the train station and once I get to the other end in Hastings, the station is right next to the College. I definitely enjoy it here and the teachers are great! The class sizes aren’t too crowded which means you get more time with the tutor during and after lessons – more one to one teaching. The teachers are very helpful and very knowledgeable about what they teach. They’re also very good at supporting with assignments and homework, giving you really thorough feedback, which is good and helps so much with your learning and development. It’s also great that College is right next to town, so you can go off at lunch time. I want to go onto university after college and study either Economics or Geography. I’ve got a few places in mind, and hopefully I’ll be able to visit some open days this summer. I want to go into finance and perhaps become a Financial Consultant.

English Language, Literature & Classics Previous School: Claverham You have much more independence at college. The College has really good transport links. I get the train to College and the station couldn’t be any closer. The building is great, nice and new.

The tutors here work ridiculously hard all the time. They are so supportive, helpful and we also have lots of fun inside and outside of class. English language is much more than just reading – we have to be analytical and think more. I find the whole subject fascinating; language change is really interesting because it looks at the more scientific side of the English language, looking into how people learn. I also find language and gender interesting. We’ve had lots of great class discussions about the texts we’ve read around gender and feminism. I want to go to Warwick University to study Creative Writing -I really want to be an author and have already written 3 books. A lot of my inspiration comes from things around me, extracts that I read in class and other books. I tend to write about fantasy and wrote 6 drafts of one book, 80,000 words each time!.

He makes each lesson fun, and gives us the responsibility and confidence to conduct our own experiments and take learning into our own hands.

Being on first name terms with the teachers is much more of a relaxed style of teaching, you’re open to discuss with them any worries you have – whether it's part of the course or not. It’s really friendly and nice here too. The environment is quite grown up, so the students here seem to mature a lot more quickly – which is a real positive about the college! The campus is brilliant, I really like the open plan style and the atrium lets in lots of natural light. Like

My plan is to look at London Universities and study Medicine. From my time at the pharmacy and hospital where I helped and cared for people, I decided that I wanted to re-train for a career as a surgeon. So that is why I’ve come back to college to study science and maths, and hope to go on to medical school. I’ve not narrowed down a specialism just yet – but I know that I have the options to choose once I’m at university.

The best thing about the college is that there is always something going on in the Atrium the atmosphere here is great! The jump from school to college is quite difficult, but you will soon get used to it. If you don’t do the work then you will get left behind. I started college with the aim of becoming an engineer. However, after finishing a work placement at an engineering company, I decided it wasn’t for me, so decided to go down the psychology route. I already have an unconditional offer to Roehampton University to study Sports Psychology which I will start this September. But it wasn’t an immediate jump to psychology, it was via statistics. I did another work placement in London and found out that to work for that organisation I didn’t necessarily need a background in statistics, so instead of limiting myself I chose A-Level subjects that I enjoyed, hence psychology. The work experience was really good and very useful. It was something I found myself because I wanted to have something extra on my UCAS application and personal statement for university.

There is a bit of a jump between school and college. There is a lot more work outside of class and there are more exams, and the exams are more difficult. You need to definitely have good time management. My tutor is a really good teacher. He’s funny and makes the classes and subject interesting. He knows his subject and guides us - we’ll often cover something in class and then he’ll say you can look this up if you want, because it’s cool!

Previous School: Bexhill Academy Studying: Level 3 Art and Design I was really interested in art at school so knew I wanted to study it at college. There is so much more freedom here to look at artists you want to look at, learn about lots of different techniques and mediums such as ceramics and printing – things I’d never done before – which is really cool. I wanted to study purely art – so that is why I chose to study the vocational side of the course, rather than the A-Level route, because I wasn’t interested in studying anything else alongside art. There’s so much to the course – we get to take part in workshops and given briefs within the workshop – so we were learning something new, and then having to apply our learning during projects. My tutor is brilliant. He’s such a good illustrator and has produced some amazing comic strips. He’s so helpful when it comes to giving me pointers with my own illustrations. I’ve applied for Portsmouth University to study illustration – I want to become a commercial illustrator but also a teacher who teaches illustration at a local college- Maybe I will come back to Sussex Coast one day!

Previous School: Ark William Parker Studying: Art & Design Foundation I love art. I love the fact I can express myself as a person and anything I feel strongly about. I chose to study the Art and Design Foundation Diploma at Sussex Coast College as it has a great reputation in delivering students to the top universities in the country. Everyone at the College is friendly and interested in helping me develop my style and art practice. My tutors are amazing at guiding my ideas and helping me develop to make them work. They are relaxed but professional. My tutors are extremely knowledgeable and specialised in their field. The facilities here are fantastic and visiting artists and designers really inspire my ambitions. In September I am going to the Slade School of Fine Art, to study Fine Art.

They hired me after my work experience! As part of my course, we have to go on work experience for a week. I think this is a great idea as students can find out what it is really like to work in a professional environment. I found a placement with Santander in Hastings. I really enjoyed my week with them and afterwards my boss Ian invited, me for an interview and I got a full-time job after! This is a really exciting opportunity for me and one that I probably wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have had if I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been on this course. Thank you Sussex Coast! Like

Studying: Level 3 Business

I chose to study at Sussex Coast College as I was impressed with the courses. I also read a lot of positive reviews on social media. I personally like the method tutors choose to teach us. They combine different teaching styles and ensure that students are engaged and understand the topic. They create professional relationships with every student and are ready to support us with course work or even any personal issues. As a student, I think that the college is a world of opportunities, that every student should embrace to successfully achieve their qualifications. I plan to go to university to study a degree in accounting or finance. Also, I will get a parttime job that is in the industry I want to work in to get experience. Like

“We have recruited many talented students from the college who work part-time during their business studies; some have decided to then join us full-time to pursue a career rather than opting for university, showing all the business acumen and potential to do well with us. We have also launched an apprenticeship programme in partnership with Sussex Coast College, enabling us to offer jobs to individuals who may not have considered Hastings Direct as their next career step.” Hastings Direct is one of the largest employers in the area and have worked with us for a number of years in offering part-time roles to our students, supporting us at careers events and has now developed an apprenticeship programme.

While studying here I saw a part-time job as a Claims Advisor advertised at Hastings Direct so I decided to apply for it. The hours were flexible and fitted around my College timetable!

The course is really good. I find it really interesting and I would recommend it to anyone – but you do need to have an interest in business and want to study, otherwise you will find it difficult. You can’t just choose it for the sake of choosing it.

In the summer holidays, I changed my hours to work full-time which also expanded my knowledge as a Claims Advisor and gave me great experience.

I think the BTEC helps you to focus on one subject, rather than choosing 3 or 4 at A-Level. I was also thinking about my longer term future when I chose Business, as I thought having this qualification behind me would be helpful as I’d have good business knowledge, so could be quite dynamic when applying for different jobs. The course gives you a good and wide insight into the world of business. You learn how businesses run and function, and it’s actually a good insight into how the world functions too.

Working in a large company has supported my learning and I’m able to use real life examples in my case studies at College. Hastings Direct also offers real career opportunities if colleagues are thinking about working full-time after College rather than going to university. Although you may start in the contact centre there are other opportunities to progress into different areas such as HR, marketing, and management. Working at Hastings Direct has given me confidence working in different departments; I was able to secure an opportunity to work in HR for work experience, which helped me decide that I wanted to get into HR as a career. I have also received the rising star of the year award and to hear my name being called out gave me such a sense of achievement it was a great motivator. Like

Previous School: St. Richards Studying: Level 3 IT I am going to go to University and study Computer Science at Southampton. The best thing about this course is that we get to debate about new technology, old technology, gaming, the internet and everything else IT. We get to have an opinion and we're encouraged to think for ourselves. I have learnt so much on this course including web design, data base coding, e-commerce and game creation. We get to test out all our new skills in set projects. One project was to create a game from concept to development - this was really fun! I think the ICT facilities at the college are the best locally and the teachers are great. My tutors guide me, showing me how to improve my work as well passing down their knowledge.

Previous School: Robertsbridge Foundation Construction Skills I chose the Foundation Construction Skills course because I wanted to get an idea of what each area was like, then I can focus on one in particular and hopefully build a career in it. You study each area for a term, we studied carpentry first, got to know all the tools, health and safety and how to put together basic joints; and were set tasks and projects which we had to complete in order to pass the module. Then it was on to bricklaying where we did the same and then finishing off with plumbing and painting and decorating. The teachers are really friendly and they’re easy to get on with. They’re quite straight talking, which is good, because we know what we need to do, so we just get on with tasks. They know a lot about their subject too, and pass on really good tips from where they’ve had years of experience in the industry. They also try to push you and stretch your learning so we’re not just settling down with the basics or the easy stuff – it’s a nice challenge. I want to come back next year and focus on one of the construction areas, quite possibly brickwork as I really enjoyed it. My longer term goal is to get a full time job in the industry, gaining lots of experience and learning as much as I can with them, with the view to starting my own business one day. Like

My tutor is really great. I’ve already been offered some work in Canada so I’ll be moving out there in the next few years and hopefully work out there for a while! This course is very hands-on, and that’s what I enjoy! I think compared to school, College gives you a much more detailed look at the subjects. Just from going from year 1 here, I’ve already learnt so many different cuts and how to join different materials. I really enjoy the practical side of the course, learning different techniques and then being able to go off and practice in the workshop is a great experience. My tutor doesn’t tell you what to do and walk you through it, it's more like he’ll set you a task and then let you figure it out for yourself, so you’re actually putting your mind to it and you’re actually learning, and since he’s been here the carpentry has really improved.

We’re doing a project at the moment where we’re designing and building items from recycled wood to then sell to people and raise money for local charities. So from the very start of a product we’re getting involved, from design all the way through to sales. I’ve always been interested in carpentry, even from a young age when I used to build ramps for my BMX, and I thought I’d go to college and learn how to do it properly and get a qualification in it. A lot of people I know came here and did carpentry last year and they recommended it to me. The tutors here are great. They’re very interactive and they’ll always be available to help or talk to you if you need it, not necessarily carpentry, they’re really good people to talk to. I work part -time at the moment, so after this year I’m hoping to go on and do an Apprenticeship with the company I work for doing a Level 2. I think an Apprenticeship will suit me because I prefer to be out on site, and also get paid. After the Apprenticeship I hope to stay with the company I work for and build up my experience. Like

“Modern building techniques such as timber frame construction, requires a highly skilled and innovative workforce to preserve the sustainability of the building project. The Carpentry and Joinery courses at Sussex Coast College explain to the students exactly what is required of them while instilling core values, so that they can leave college with the essential skills they need for a more sustainable future.” Timber Frame is fully behind the carpentry and joinery courses here at the college.

Previous School: Hastings Academy Level 2 Painting and Decorating Apprentice

I really liked the course, and could have gone on to study the level 3, but wanted to become an Apprentice and gain more experience and knowledge while learning on the job. I decided to go for it because there is even more opportunity to learn while actually working, plus I’m able to earn money at the same time too. The teachers are great, they guide you through everything, even if you get stuck – they’ll explain things really well. Before you start an activity they’ll explain how its done, and why you’re doing it. At the College you learn everything you need to know about painting and decorating. You start with all the tools and what they’re used for, then move on to basic techniques, and how to work safely. The other great thing about college is that it gives you an opportunity to make mistakes, which is perfect for helping you to learn from. I’m glad I was able to practice at College because making mistakes can have an impact on the cost of material etc. Like

Previous School: St.Leonards Academy Studying: Level 2 Plumbing Ore Valley isn’t as busy as the Station Plaza site, but it is perfectly set up for students who want to learn the construction trade. It has everything you need. The workshops are big enough for you to work comfortably and there are always plenty of tools. I tried the course out and really enjoyed it, and thought that it was something I’d like to make a career out of. Plus I’m also a real firm believer that women can do these sorts of jobs and we can be just as good, if not better than men at these jobs. It is becoming a bit more common now, but I still feel that a lot of girls think that it’s just a masculine role. I’m up with the high flyers in the class, my grades are really good and I am not at a disadvantage just because I am a girl. The tutors are really nice and really helpful. Not just in class but also outside of class. They’ll do their best to help you so that it doesn’t affect your learning. I'm hoping to go onto level 3 next year. After this I’m hoping to get qualified in the gas side of things so I can work on boilers. In the long term, I’ll hopefully be able to work full-time, build up my experience and knowledge in the industry, and then one day set-up by myself and run my own plumbing business. Like

Previous School: Bexhill Academy Studying: Level 3 Engineering There are quite a few areas of studying that I enjoy. My favourite part of the course is the machine shop skills, mathematics and material studies. There is a bit for everyone really. We have a theory day, which involves CAD, Engineering materials, Health and Safety, maths and more. Then we have a practical day for electronics which includes a little bit of theory, and then we have a welding day and machine shop skills. There is a lot of practical work for people who like to be hands-on and learn that way. There are lots of inspirational and knowledgeable tutors who are easy to connect with and have similar interests to me. You can have a laugh with all of them, and they get to know you personally and your learning styles. This is the best part of being a student here, because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not working for someone who is telling you what to do, but for someone who is guiding you along the right path. Like

You need to have a lot of self-motivation to study here. Unlike school, you’re given a lot of independence and you’re in control of your own learning and need to be disciplined to keep up with the work otherwise you will fall behind – meaning you’re your own boss.

I feel like the College has helped me with my confidence as well as my knowledge of hairdressing. I have enjoyed both of my years at College and made loads of friends which I hope to keep for the rest of my life.

I really like the fact that all the tutors have industry experience, so they know what they’re talking about. I feel like they pass down their knowledge to us and give us a good chance to succeed. I like how we all have different uniforms. I do feel proud to look like a beautician when I come to College, and that’s what I’m training towards and it’s nice to look the part already. I now have a part-time job at a beauty salon while I study. I want to progress onto Level 3 Beauty Therapy and specialise in electrical treatments. I’m really keen to progress onto the Level 4 IPL Treatments course too. Like

The tutors have become more like friends than teachers, they have been incredibly kind and supportive of me throughout my time at College which has helped me with my confidence. I am very appreciative of everyone at the College that has helped me from the first day, as they are the reason I am who I am today. My goal is to work on a cruise ship for a couple of years so I can travel the world as well as doing what I love in the cruise ships salon. After a couple of years, I would like to either open my own salon or work abroad for a while. Like

Beauty Therapy Diploma Level: 3 Campus: Station Plaza Course code: 3651 What entry requirements do I need? You will need to have obtained a Level 2 Beauty Therapy qualification or equivalent.

Ami Freed

Studying: Level 2 Beauty Therapy

I studied Art and Design but wanted a change of career and decided to re-train in beauty. I felt it was a really good industry to go into as I could still fulfil my artistic flare and passion by being creative with nail art and make people feel good with treatments and massages. I travel from Battle to come to College and it's really easy to get to. The facilities all over the College are amazing. There is a great range of places to eat and I can use the gym, the beauty facilities are amazing. We’ve got a sauna and Jacuzzi - it’s a real shame that you wouldn’t necessarily know about them unless you’ve been here for a treatment. The course is really great and I love it – the tutors are really lovely. Like

Studying: Level 3 Health & Social Care I’ve always wanted to work in Care and while studying a Level 3 Health and Social Care Diploma at the College, I have been able to progress in my role at a care home. The course covers a wide range of subjects such as Equality and Diversity and Health and Safety, but I have found the psychology module particularly useful. The tutors are really easy to get on with and the College offers great progression opportunities. I plan to start a degree in Health and Social Care here next year. Like

Previous School: Hastings Academy Studying: Level 2 Health & Social Care I decided to study here because I really like the College, I think it’s amazing. I knew that the College had a really great health and social care course, and that I would be able to achieve the qualifications I need to help me achieve my future career. The tutors are great. You get a lot of respect from them, which in return means that you respect them too. They are always available to help when you need it, and more than happy to talk to you if you have any problems. After College I’m planning to start my career as a carer. I hope to build up my knowledge and experience and then move into a different care setting perhaps as a counsellor, youth worker or social worker.

Previous School: Ark William Parker Studying: Level 3 Professional Patisserie I chose patisserie because I had been here for two years studying cooking at level 1 and level 2 so really wanted to stretch myself a bit more and try something a bit more technical. One thing I’ve realised from my time helping in the restaurant kitchen is that you need to develop a thick skin. When you’re right in the middle of service then you need to not take things to heart – because once service is over, you all go back to being best of friends again.

We have a large state-of-theart training kitchen for you to learn and practice your skills. We also have a fine dining restaurant so that you can experience serving food and drink to paying customers - great work experience for your CV!

The Martin Chiffers visit was incredible. I learnt so much from him. I’m really interested in chocolate work and we have to make a centre piece for one of our final assessments. I’d love to find a job in a restaurant in the kitchen or in a bakery. I may even consider the Concord Management programme, because I’d quite like the idea of working somewhere new. The only pastry chef jobs are in hotels and that would be something I’d love to do. I love coffee and cakes, so perhaps one day the dream would be to open a coffee and cake shop. Like

What will I learn?

This has changed my life.

This course gives students the opportunity to show their commitment and enthusiasm towards improving their maths, English and life skills.

I am now working and showing my ability to work. I don’t have too much time to get myself into trouble and I am now inspiring my children to work hard.

They will receive pastoral care, individual targets and teaching to meet their individual needs. Students can participate in educational visits, work experience, taster sessions and enrichment activities. What could I progress on to? On completion of this course you can continue on the Pathways programme to improve maths and English to Entry Level 3.

I no longer watch programmes like Benefit Street and feel ashamed – I hated it. But now my life has changed and it feels great! I work at Subway and we get a sub for lunch, and you don’t get bored, as there are over 3000 different combinations to make! Like

Rhiannon Angel

Previous School: St. Leonards Academy Studying: Level 3 Music Practitioners I love the music room - it’s one of my favourite places to be! There’s a lot more freedom at college than school and it’s all down to yourself to make the effort in your work and assignments! The atmosphere in the classrooms is amazing because everyone else around you are all doing the same thing. There are numerous computers to settle down at break times, and the LRC is always open after class. Palmer and Malcolm are really helpful when teaching us everything from the basics to intermediate music technology. They are both great to have a laugh with, and are always there to lend a helping hand. Even when I don’t understand something they always go through a little demonstration on the board. It really helps and I understand it better afterwards. I hope that after I finish this course I can someday travel around the world as a Musician/Music Producer. Like

Previous School: Hastings Academy Studying: Level 3 Football Academy The football academy is great. I now play for Hastings United! In a typical week we train Monday, Tuesday and Friday – 9-11am and then I’ll have theory lessons around that. I have one lesson on a Monday, one on a Tuesday and up to three on a Friday. We play matches on Wednesday and we have a rest day on a Thursday, to help us recover from the match the day before. In lessons we cover a whole range of things. We’re covering coaching, psychology, anatomy, health and lifestyle, learn about sports more in-depth, in terms of rules, history and funding. The practical side of the academy is intense. Training is really good. The academy has got a set up like a professional club academy. The facilities allows us to cover a range of different training. We also study to gain our Level 1 coaching badge. When I finish playing football I would like to go on to coaching and I’d love to stay in the sport. I plan to go to University, but who knows what could happen between now and then. With the football academy coaches and their contacts, there is always the opportunity to be invited for trial by professional clubs, so I could actually have a life in football.

Previous School: St. Leonards Academy Studying: Level 2 Sport I want to become a badminton coach! I studied PE at school so have a good understanding of the subject. I wanted to study somewhere I could make friends. This college is a really friendly, big environment. The teachers here are friendly and more on an adult level with you. My tutor is quite laid back, but when it's time to focus and concentrate then he’ll let us know. He can be quite strict, but he’s got all of our respect so we know when we can have a laugh and when it's time to work. I like the mix of classroom based work, gym work and self-study time. I’m really interested in learning about anatomy and physiology, the body, muscles and exercise. I’m looking to go on to study Level 3 next year and after College I’d love to become a badminton coach, or something to do with coaching. I love badminton and I’ve been playing since I was 4. I already have my Level 1 badge, and once I turn 18, I'll be able to study for my Level 2. England Badminton are based in Milton Keynes so it would be great to move there and coach one day.

Previous School: Buckswood Studying: Level 3 Advanced Sport

You have a lot of independence here and you’re not made to do something if you don’t want to do it – you’re here because you want to be which makes you enjoy it more! During the course you get to experience a bit of everything in sport so you can go into anything after. Some of our units require us to pair up and design fitness programmes for each other, and then do fitness testing to see if the programmes have worked, which was really enjoyable. The College has a great feel to it. The lessons are really good, because we get a mixture of learning. Sometimes we’re in the classroom, other lessons we have in the gym and we also go up to Horntye for more practical elements and sports, so to play netball and tag rugby. I plan to go to Plumpton college to study a foundation degree in outdoor adventurous activity as I’d quite like to be an indoor rock climbing instructor. But I also have this dream of doing that on a cruise ship, because you get to travel around and teach rock climbing. Like

I got a cabin crew job with British Airways! My tutors really helped me prepare for the interview - thank you

I was ecstatic to find out that I got a job with Monarch. It was all a bit of a whirlwind to be honest. I saw their recruitment day pop-up on Facebook and a couple of days later I was travelling to Brighton. Everything I learned during the course, and the fact that we had to wear a cabin crew uniform and make sure that our make-up is immaculate, really paid off during my assessment. In fact, to help us even more, representatives from British Airways came into College a few months ago to put us through our paces during mock interviews. The course taught me lots about flight procedures, safety procedures, airport codes, currency, and what to do in an emergency. With all of that under my belt, it meant I could be confident and make a really good impression. Like

I’ve always wanted to work abroad because I love visiting different places and experiencing different cultures. I think this course is really good! You get to go on a lot of trips and there are so many opportunities for us. For example, there are always job opportunities coming up from our tutor contacts. Our tutors often help us apply for them, or help us get some work experience! At the end of this year, we have mock interviews with professionals from the industry to give us interview practice. I also like the uniform, it makes me feel like I’m ready to go into the world of work. You get treated like a grown up here. My tutors are so lovely. They listen to any problems you may have and don’t want you to feel like you can’t talk to them. One of the best things has to be the trips we get to go on. On one trip to Disneyland Paris we were there for three days learning how the park operates, future plans and new rides. I want to become a Holiday Camp Rep and work in holiday destinations as an entertainer. I would organise lots of fun activities for children while they’re on holiday – and I am a keen dancer and studied drama at school, so I’d be really interested in doing something like that. But more short term I want to stay at the College and study the extended diploma next year. University doesn’t really appeal to me. I’ll look to get into the industry after the second year, and hopefully make a long and successful career out of it.

I want to work abroad perhaps even on a cruise ship. This course sets me up really nicely and gives me so many options! There is a lot more work; it’s quite full on learning about continents, countries, landscapes, top tourist destinations, time zones – and also learning in depth about cruises and tour operators. We go on lots of trips including the World Travel Market at the London Excel. There were lots of reps from large organisations around the world to talk to. I think this college is great. The best thing is that it gets you ready for a career in the industry. So if you want to work in travel, then this is the place to come. Like

College is a lot better than school because the tutors treat you with much more maturity.

I think the course here is great. It's very structured and even the small things like the uniform standards and a regular timetable help to instil discipline.

Previous School: Rye College

The course is very different from anything I’ve learned before. Parades and drills are quite similar to the ones I've done in the sea cadets – but the knowledge of the industry is different – you learn much more. You learn about all the public services, the fire service, ambulance, police, and all the different sectors within that. Also voluntary, nonvoluntary, uniformed and non-uniformed services – all the sort of things they have to do, what each service is responsible for, how they are managed and how they are funded. The tutors are brilliant, they support you with all your work. If you have any problems, they help you and sort it all out for you. Next year I will study another course to expand my knowledge and to help me boost my application to the armed forces. Joining the armed forces has been a goal of mine for about 5 years. Hopefully with qualifications and experience with the sea cadets I’ll be able to go in at a higher level.

144

Studying: Level 3 Public Services

There is also lots of opportunity to do parades, with uniform checks, which is very similar to the army. We learn about the British army core values, and get to go on trips – at the beginning of the year we went on a week-long camp with the NCS which was really great, because I was able to get to know my new class mates and tutors and make some new friends all before I started. For certain assignments we have to learn about the human body in terms of muscles and fitness and for others we have to do physical test, like gym sessions, the bleep test or go out for 1.5 mile runs. What I really want to do is be a dog handler in the police service for counter terrorism – that’s what I'm aiming to do. I’m thinking of going to the university of policing – we know that our grades are really important and it is quite competitive to get into the forces, so every grade really matters.

The course was single-handedly one of the best experiences of my life. There was not one day where I dreaded coming into College.

I love college so much that I even considered doing another course here. I really couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say a bad word about studying Public Services at Sussex Coast College!

I believe two vital parts of this course will help me excel in my career; the most important is the physical fitness. Since joining the UPS course I have lost 2.5 stone and have improved my cardiovascular fitness tenfold.

I have always wanted to go into the police but when my tutors suggested University, I thought, why not! Now I am going to be studying Policing and Criminology at Birmingham City University and hope to go into the police after.

This has given me an edge over some of the other officers. The second thing is discipline. This is vitally important, especially when you are a public body.

We get involved with events from Armed Forces Day, to Remembrance Day and running our own Christmas fairs. The events are all different, not necessarily related to the army or police, so we get to experience many things.

I have now applied to work for the Ministry of Defence Police and am currently half way through the initial vetting procedure. The section I have applied for is Operational Support Unit (OSU), and within 12 months I want to have started the 17-week training course. Like

You do have to be prepared to be disciplined, but the tutors are the best tutors I have ever met and I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pick my favourite if I tried. The best bit is we get to play paintball with the tutors and shoot them at the end of term! Like

I have found that apprenticeships give you so many more opportunities to get into a job that you want to do. Some people go to university and study for 3 years, and when they graduate they find it so difficult to get the job they want. The beauty of an apprenticeship is that you gain industry experience, which is what a lot of employers are looking for, as well as earning money simultaneously

Your Employer You’ll spend most of your time with your employer gaining industry knowledge and experience. Your employer will pay your wage, so you will need to find a company that needs an apprentice and is happy to employ you before you start the programme.

What will my Apprenticeship cost me? If you are aged 16 -18 it won’t cost you anything. If you are aged 19 and over, your employer will be asked to pay a contribution towards your Apprenticeship programme.

Entry requirements For Intermediate, Advanced and Higher Apprenticeships you will need: •

A contract of employment for a minimum of 30 hours per week; and to successfully complete a probationary period at work

Meet with the Apprenticeship Team to discuss your GCSE qualifications and industry/work experience to determine your Apprenticeship level

Successfully complete assessments in English, Maths and ICT (if necessary). The initial assessments and interviews will be carried out at the College

You may be required to regularly attend College depending on your Apprenticeship (maximum 1 day a week)

Functional Skills Depending on your prior attainment you may be required to complete Functional Skills in English, Maths (and possibility ICT) for any Apprenticeship you undertake.

152


There are three levels of apprenticeship: 1. Intermediate Level Apprenticeship Working towards a work-based Level 2 competence qualification, as well as Functional Skills (if required) and in most cases a relevant knowledge-based qualification. A Level 2 Apprenticeship is equivalent to 5 GCSEs at grades A*–C /Grade 4 and above. 2. Advanced Level Apprenticeship You can expect to gain a work-based Level 3 competence qualification, as well as Functional Skills (if required) and in most cases a relevant knowledge-based qualification. A Level 3 Apprenticeship is equivalent to 2 A-levels. 3. Higher Apprenticeship You’ll work towards a work-based Level 4 competence qualification and a learningbased qualification (if required) and a knowledge-based qualification such as a HNC/HND. The Government is committed to expanding the number, range and quality of apprenticeships that offer progression onto degree level study.

Leia has now finished her Apprenticeship and she has a very bright future with us, she is an asset to the business.

At the end of your interview, you will be given written confirmation of any exam grades (or other requirements) you need to secure your place. Once your place is confirmed, you will continue to receive information about starting college and your journey to an exciting future will begin.

You will receive a letter telling you what you will need to bring with you on your allocated day and time, as a general rule, these 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.

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 a Sussex Coast 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.

Can’t make up your mind?

Course cancellations

If you can’t decide on a course, don’t panic. You can include all the ones that you are interested in, on your application form (a copy of this is at the back of this prospectus) and then discuss them with us at interview. We also offer bookable guidance appointments for you to explore your options.

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.

The most important thing is you eventually enrol on the course that’s right for you.
