Information for students studying or intending to study at the college.
If you choose to study with us, you will find you are working alongside students of all ages and backgrounds, although the majority of our students are between 16 and 18 years old. Most courses however also have adults enrolled on them, and some are aimed purely at more mature students.
At North Lindsey College we pride ourselves on our friendly and welcoming atmosphere. You will find that life at college is rather different from school. For example, you can wear what you like - from jeans to saris - as long as you observe Health and Safety Regulations (e.g. in our workshops and other specialist areas).
Class sizes vary, but an average group will contain between 15 and 20 students. Some groups are larger than this, whilst in some specialist areas much smaller groups are the norm.
We are keen that parents and carers feel involved in the education of our 16-18 year old students. We find that involvement and encouragement from parents and carers helps to ensure that students have the best possible experiences during their time at College.
The Further Education prospectus is the first step in finding out about the courses on offer at the College, the level at which they can be studied and a little bit about College life. To request your copy call customer services on: 01724 294030 or fill in the online request form.
At our annual open evening, held every October, the entire campus is open for school leavers and their parents to wander around, talk to tutors, see the facilities and get answers to any questions relating to courses or college life. In addition, we hold regular Advice and Enrolment Sessions throughout the year. These are hall based events and allow prospective learners and their parents to gain advice from College tutors and our experienced Guidance Team.
Cost of Course(s)
FE students aged 16-18 do not have to pay course fees, although students may be required to purchase specialist equipment and materials for their chosen course. Many courses offer enrichment activities and residential trips and visits which may incur an additional cost.
Notification of Absence
We ask students, or their parents/carers, to notify us of any absence due to illness by 9am on the first day of illness and any subsequent days. Notification should be made to the Student Absence Line on: 01724 294030 or text 'SICKNESS + student number + name + reason' to 07797800657.
Your attendance and progress will be monitored on an on-going basis by your course tutors and your Progression and Achievement Coach. Any students giving cause for concern will be identified and given one-to-one support to achieve personal targets and goals. You and your parents will be invited to attend parents’ evenings with course tutors.
For some courses a clean, enhanced DBS certificate is required. If you have any concerns regarding this, please speak to Customer Services on 01724 294030.
North Lindsey College welcomes students with additional needs such as a learning difficulty or disability. We offer advice, assessment and support to help students achieve their chosen vocational programme. Initial assessment processes will be used to help you, your tutors and your progression and achievement coach identify whether you need extra support to achieve your learning goals. The learning support team will identify how best to support your needs.
The Learning Support team assists students with both physical needs and learning needs. Services can include: literacy and numeracy support, in class support, communication and mobility support, assistive technology and specialist equipment. We also provide exam access assessments.
If you wish to speak to our success centre team about additional support for a disability or learning difficulty please contact Ann Cooper on 01724 294074 or by email at email@example.com.
