Bolton College
School Leavers' Enrolment
Enrolment 2016-17

We are delighted that you will be joining us in September. We are confident that the course or Apprenticeship you have chosen will provide you with the skills and qualifications you need to eventually gain employment. We are proud of the support we offer our learners so if you need extra help, don't be afraid to ask your tutor. The information below is all about what you need to do to complete your enrolment.

Who can enrol?

Adults (aged 19+) and young people (aged 16-18 years old) can enrol at Bolton College. 

Adults can enrol at any of our College locations (see for hub details). Young people need to enrol at our Deane Road campus. 

Please check the times below before you enrol.

What do I need to bring with me to enrol?

You will need to bring your exam results to enrol. If you have just taken your GCSE’s you can collect your results slip from your school. If you have taken GCSEs and don’t bring your results with you, we won’t be able to complete your enrolment and you will need to return on another day.

What will happen when I arrive at College to enrol?

Whilst each person will have a slightly different enrolment experience, every person will need to;

  1. Meet with a tutor to complete a Study Programme Form
  2. Visit our maths & English team to discuss how you will continue to develop these vital skills
  3. Sit with an Enrolment Officer to get your results copied and collect your College ID 

Is there anything else I may need to do before I enrol?

IIf you haven’t already taken an Initial Assessment (BKSB) you will need to do this during your visit. This assessment can take quite a long time to complete so we would encourage you to take this assessment before Thursday 24 August. All students have to sit this assessment. It’s nothing to worry about and it won’t stop you from getting onto the course you want. The assessment just helps us to decide if you will require any extra support. 

How long will my enrolment take?

The college will be very busy during enrolment. If you arrive at the right time (see list below) we’ll work hard to get you enrolled within two hours but it could take longer.  If you need to sit the initial assessment, please allow at least an extra 1.5 hours to complete your enrolment (see above for how you can sit your assessment before you enrol). 

When will my course start?

Most courses start on Monday 11 September, however, you will be told your exact start date and time once you have enrolled. You will also be told what you will need to bring with you on your first day and about all the exciting things you can experience in the first term.
Once you have enrolled you will be given your College ID Card, please keep this safe as you will need to wear this whenever you come to college!

Is there anything else I need to do between now and enrolling?

Firstly complete your exams to the best of your ability, and then give yourself a well-deserved break!

You should have already received your invite to attend our New Student Day on Friday 7 July 2017. This event will allow you to get to know the building and the staff at Bolton College before your course starts. We’ve also organised lots of fun activities and a free lunch! 
If you haven’t received your invite please give us a quick call on 01204 482 000 or 482 181 and we will reserve you a place.

Who can I talk to about financial support?

If you meet the criteria specified please call our Student Services Centre on 01204 482 182 to request a 16-18 Student Financial Support Application Form. Forms will be sent out in August. Alternatively, you can pop into our Deane Road Campus and collect a form after Tuesday 1st August

Who do I talk to about my support needs?

If you have a learning difficulty or disability and haven’t already told the College it is really important that you tell us as soon as possible.

Telling us early will give us time to talk to you about your needs and get them in place ready for your first class. You, or your parent/carer, can give our Learning Support Team a call on 01204 482 669 or 482 670.
