We want to be sure that you are enrolled on the right course. Before enrolling on some courses you will need to attend a Pre-Course Assessment session (PCA). Staff will talk to you about what you want to achieve and any support you may need. You will be offered the best class for you. This will help us to ensure you enrol on the right level course and we provide appropriate support to help you achieve.

What to expect:

The Pre-Course Assessment can last up to three hours.

You will:

  • Complete a maths and/or English initial assessment
  • Tell us about your past achievements and long-term goals
  • Find out more about the course
  • Find out where and when the courses run
  • Tell us if you think you need extra support.

You need to book your Pre-Course Assessment before you enrol.

How to book your assessment:

  • Arrange a date and time.
  • We will give you an appointment confirmation setting out the date, time and location of your assessment.

Please do not bring children to these assessments. They will not be allowed in the assessment rooms and cannot be left unsupervised.

Please bring certificates or proof of any previous qualifications

After your assessment:

  • We will tell you your English and maths skills level.
  • We will then give you a letter that confirms the course you can enrol on, you can enrol on your course straight away or at a later date.

Please note, courses are offered on a strictly first come first served basis, therefore we recommend that you enrol straight after your PCA to avoid disappointment.
