Dear Year 11
For students who have already applied and been offered a place, you will soon receive a spring project which can be completed at home. Your place is secure, and we look forward to seeing you in September.
If you haven’t yet applied to Fareham College, you can still apply online at www.fareham.ac.uk Your application will be sent straight to our Careers Centre Team, who will then contact you over the phone and discuss the interview process.
Our Careers Centre Team are on hand every day, and can contact students via phone and email. Students can contact the Careers Team at email@example.com, please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.
We are still accepting applications for full-time courses starting in September 2020, including the new T Level qualifications in Digital Design, Production and Development and Education and Childcare.
Students who have applied and are awaiting their interview
Our Careers Centre Team will contact each student and conduct their college interview by telephone. Intro Sessions are cancelled for the foreseeable future, so after their interview, if successful, students will receive their conditional offer to attend the College by email. Please can you ask your teams to encourage students to answer all calls, so we can secure them a place as soon as possible.
Students who have already received conditional offers
For students who have already received a conditional offer from the College, their place is reserved for them. Students will receive their invites for enrolment during the summer term. We are looking at revising this process should we find ourselves in a prolonged period of social distancing, so not to disadvantage students in preparation for a September start. Any revised procedures or timings for enrolment will be communicated to students by email, on our website and through social media.
Students will shortly receive details of spring projects from our Careers Centre Team which they can work on to help them to prepare for their transition to College. Please ask your teams to encourage completion of these projects, as it ensures we offer the most suitable provision to each individual student in September.
Resources to assist transition to College
We are currently preparing a booklet with information to assist your Year 11 students with their successful transition to College. This will be emailed out to all Year 11 students who have applied, whether they have a conditional offer, or are awaiting interview and will also be uploaded to our website. We will also share it with your Careers Leads, who may also wish to include this resource on your website and/or in communications with your Year 11 students.
We strongly encourage prospective students to contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
should they have any questions or concerns regarding the application process and our Careers Centre Team will respond as quickly as possible. Please can you also encourage your Year 11 students to contact us should they have any questions.
I do hope that this information helps to reassure you and your Year 11 students that we are working hard to ensure that their transition to the College is a successful one, despite the current situation, and if there is anything further we can do to support you and your students, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
