All students are expected to arrive on time for classes and to attend every class within their agreed programme.
Punctual and regular attendance is critical to your success and any problems will be reported to employers, in the case of sponsored students, and parents where the student is under 18 years old.
If you are ill or have a personal emergency which prevents you from attending College, please phone your School Administrator and leave a message for your Personal Tutor saying when you expect to return. This will allow your Personal Tutor to record the absence. If your attendance falls below a certain level, you will not be able to claim financial support from the College, you may not be entered for exams, and action will be taken under the Student Disciplinary Procedure.
If you are late for a class, this will be recorded and you will have to complete a lateness slip explaining why you are late. If you have a pattern of unacceptable lateness, disciplinary action will be taken.
Always remember that your Personal Tutor and the Counselling Service can support you with problems at home or in College. If you have difficulties which affect your ability to get to College, let us know so that we can try to help.
The specific arrangements for your course will be confirmed during the Induction Programm
