SCHOOL LEAVERS

The College has committed to providing a college place to all school leavers. This is possible due to the different levels of courses available at the college. We would however reiterate that it is vital that you continue to work hard to secure the best grades possible to ensure that you enter post-16 study at a level that reflects your hard work and places you on the highest level of course available.

We can also confirm that we will once again be undertaking a face to face enrolment process as this is the best way to ensure that the right advice and guidance is provided.

The enrolment days for school leavers will be:-

Thursday 25th August 2022
Friday 26th August 2022
Tuesday 30th August 2022
  • Applicants will be invited into college at allocated timeslots and will be required to bring their GCSE results slip as proof of their previous school. We do accept these electronically and you can show them on your mobile phone. Applicants will not be able access the enrolment process outside of their timeslot. This will enable us to ensure appropriate time is given to all of our applicants.
  • If any applicant cannot make their allotted enrolment time, you can contact us for a different time during the 3-day enrolment period.
  • If any applicant cannot make the 3-day enrolment period dates, we will have enrolment appointments available to book w/c 29th August. Full details will be provided to you in your enrolment letter which will be sent out Mid July.
  • Applicants for apprenticeships will be supported in trying to secure an employment vacancy. We guarantee a place on a study programme at college for those applicants who do not secure employment and will continue to search for a vacancy during their first year at college.
  • If you have an employer and have not yet let us know, please contact the apprenticeship team at employerengagement@wigan-leigh.ac.uk. The team will then contact you directly to arrange your apprenticeship enrolment / sign up.
