The Application Process for Adult Learners

Adult Education offers courses throughout the year at several dates and times, so the application process can be on-going depending on the course you would like to study and its start date.

We will be organising enrolment events where you can enrol for your chosen course(s) and ask any questions that you may have about the course.  These enrolment events will be held on the following dates;

  • Saturday 7th September 10am - 1pm
  • Tuesday 3rd September 4pm – 8.00pm
  • Wednesday 4th September 4pm – 8..00pm
  • Tuesday 10th September 4pm – 8.00pm
  • Wednesday 11th September 4pm – 8.00pm

Our enrolment events can take up to an hour and you should be aware that there is limited parking on site.  At the enrolment event you will be required to bring identification and payment for your chosen course.  You will also have your student ID photograph taken for your student lanyard.  You may also be required to sit an initial assessment for Maths and English (or both) to enable us to determine your current educational level and see if the course level is suitable for you.  If it is not, then you will be offered a more suitable course
