MESSAGE FROM WALTHAM FOREST COLLEGE

 

Given the current situation with COVID-19 and the restrictions likely to be put on students due to lack of exams and practical assessments, please reassure your students that no learners will be disadvantaged in terms of continuing their studies at Waltham Forest College for their chosen course. We want to keep you updated on the College processes for applications and interviews during the ‘remote-working’ period.

Applications

 

We are continuing to accept applications. Students wishing to apply to the College can do so online via our College website www.waltham.ac.uk

If anyone encounters an issue while applying for a course they should contact Learner Services via myfuture@waltham.ac.uk

Interviews

All interviews will now be conducted by phone. Applicants will have the opportunity to talk to the subject tutor, who will review the application and provide high-quality, impartial  information, advice and guidance.

During the interview the tutor will recognise all prior learning and discuss with the applicant courses or awards / certificates they hold, what programmes they are currently engaged in and the predicated grades they have been given in all subjects, especially Maths and English. The College may decide to seek references at a later stage for some learners as necessary.

An assessment may need to be completed later on in the year to ensure students are studying at the right level and on the right course.

You can refer to the Application Process page on our website for the full application and interview process.

We would like to thank you all for your continued support and for any specific enquiries you can contact the Learner Services Team via email on myfuture@waltham.ac.uk who will respond as soon as possible.
