2020 Starters Facebook Group
This is a group for all applicants to join to keep updated on college news and developments and meet new friends before they start with us in hopefully September.
Applicant support
We know that the majority of schools are supporting current year 11’s with work in preparation for college life so we want to let you know that faculty administrators are sending out worksheets, projects, reading lists to all applicants in the coming weeks. If any of your pupils have applied and doesn’t receive this then please let us know and we will pass this on.
NSCG examining bodies for work setting
A few schools have been in touch asking what examining bodies we use for both A level and Vocational areas. Well, attached is the full list so that you can share with subjects leads- we hope you find this list useful.
And finally, we are still processing applications and running telephone interviews so please advise pupils to apply in the usual way via our website (www.nscg.ac.uk).
