Virtual Transition Days
If our planned Transition Day in July cannot go ahead, we are excited to announce that we will also be hosting Virtual Transition Days for our prospective students! These will begin w/c Monday 11th May. Students can sign up for sessions by clicking the link: https://www.leggott.ac.uk/transition/
The sessions will be led through a platform called Zoom, students can download this through the appstore on their phone. There will be an opportunity at the end of each session for Q&A with the area lead.
If you have any questions regarding college applications, interviews or the transition process please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
"I know that we are in anxious times. I just wanted to let you know about JLC’s approach to this year’s GCSE results and our entry requirements. I hope this gets rid of one of your worries. Our guarantee to you is that we will liaise with your Head Teacher and if they confirm your potential grade matches our entry requirements we will honour that.
We want to reassure our prospective students that as information comes through, we as a college will adapt to ensure your future is not affected at JLC.
Our School Liaison Team will be working though all applications and will be conducting telephone interviews over the next two weeks throughout the working day. Please note these phone calls will be from a withheld number.
Following on from this, an offer letter or email will be sent to prospective students but we cannot guarantee the timeframe for this.
We appreciate your patience with us, our students are at the heart of what we do and we will be adapting our processes we are implementing in line with government advice.
Applications to JLC are still open and we will continue to process these.
If you have any further queries about your individual circumstances, please email us at email@example.com

The removal of end of year assessments also has a significant impact on all of our feeder schools. We have already had several queries from applicants and schools looking for guidance on what it means for their application to study with us in the autumn.
Our position is simple:
- We will honour all of the offers we have made to students.
- We will accept the outcomes that they are awarded and use these to assess their suitability for courses according to our published entry criteria (as ever, these are subject to change)
- We are not giving guaranteed enrolment appointments for applicants who apply after 31st March
Given our move to remote working, applicant interviewing will take place by phone. These telephone interviews will commence from 20th April.
John Hamlin, Liaison Manager

North Lindsey College
All students who have applied to study at North Lindsey College have been sent a letter in the post this week outlining the pre-College work they will need to complete prior to enrolment later this year.
We have set-up a bespoke page on our website called September Starts, for all students progressing to study with us in September: www.northlindsey.ac.uk/september-starts/
This is for students who could be coming to us straight from school, transferring from another College or current students moving up to a new Level or programme of study.
On this page students will find all of the pre-College work they will need to complete prior to enrolling with us at the end of August and starting with us in September. This work can be completed as a handwritten piece of work, or on a computer and then printed out or emailed to us. Whatever option is best for each individual, as we appreciate not everyone has access to a home computer.
Students will find information for each subject area, with a link to download or view the tasks.
If students need further assistance regarding access, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the College. Students can either message the subject area contact directly as listed on each of the sections, or contact the main College switchboard on 01724 281111 or email@example.com
We’re really looking forward to our new students starting with us in September! All students who have applied to study at North Lindsey College have been sent a letter to their home address to outline what to expect from us in the coming few months, to reassure them and remind them that we’re still here for them during lockdown if they're in need of any help.
Once students have applied and been offered a place at North Lindsey College, the next step is for them to enrol.
North Lindsey College enrolment normally takes place in August 2020 once students have received their GCSE results. As a College we are currently looking at different options for our enrolment activity and depending on the circumstances, we will either enrol students online or if lockdown is eased, we will be inviting students into College in person to complete the process on one of our enrolment days.
We will keep everyone updated on the enrolment events, applicants will receive an enrolment invitation nearer the time to outline their next steps and what they you need to do to enrol.
Between now and August course tutors will be in touch to outline a simple activity we would like students to complete prior to enrolment. The activity is just an opportunity for the College and Curriculum area to get to know our new students a bit better and help with their move from school into College life.
To help with the transition from school, North Lindsey College are holding regular #VirtuallyHere experience open events, so please keep an eye on the College's social media for all updates and how to register for these essential events.
