Progress Review 2

By the end of January we would have released our second 'progress review' of the academic year on the student portal. Throughout the progress review period, teaching staff will produce a document which highlights the following:

  • Attitude towards the programme
  • Progress made this academic year
  • Attendance performance
  • Targets for the remaining of the academic year
  • Expected and aspirational grades

If your young person has given consent to 'Share Progress' with you on the student portal, you will also receive a copy once the progress review document is available. You can find further details on how your young person can give you this consent here.

Booking your parent's evening

You can book your parent's evening for your young person's course here from a list of dates and times which the course director is available. During your parent's evening, you'll find out how your young person is doing on their course and discuss their recent progress review. You'll also be able to ask any questions which you may have. Please choose your young person's course area and then click 'Book' next to their course.

Please scroll to the right (or set your phone to landscape) once you've found the course if you're on a mobile phone.

  • A Levels
     

    We are pleased to invite you to the virtual A-Level parent's evening on Tuesday 22nd February. This is an opportunity for you to meet your child's Subject Teachers and Personal Tutor and to discuss their progress.

    You should book an appointment for each subject and also one for your child's personal tutor. You can book your slots here.To do this please follow the below instructions:

    1. Go into the event and select a timeslot
    2. Select a single subject meeting and book
    3. Go back to the event homepage
    4. Select a different timeslot for each meeting

    You will need to book a different timeslot for each of your meetings. Where there are multiple tutors for a subject the slot options will state which tutor or year group each slot is for.
     
    Once you have booked your place, you will be sent a Zoom link for each subject area. Please join this just before your selected time slot; you will be invited into a waiting room and the tutor will invite you into the main meeting once they have completed their previous meeting. 
     
    Your child is welcome to attend the online meetings with you and we look forward to seeing you virtually at the event.
     
    The programme manager, Nicola Lloyd, will also be available on the evening and you can book a slot to speak with her by following the above instructions.

College of West Anglia is committed to providing a safe environment for our students. We have a zero-tolerance approach to sexual violence and harassment – it is never acceptable. We will take action to tackle this whenever it happens. All reports will be taken seriously, we will listen to you and will talk to you about how we can help and support you.

The college operates a financial support scheme which can help students whose financial circumstances make it difficult for them to meet the costs associated with study. If eligible, you could receive help with costs such as course fees, materials, kit and equipment, transport, childcare and accommodation. Free meals on the days you are at college are also available for eligible students. All awards are based on your financial needs and consider the amount of funds available.

All students aged 16-18 on the first day of their course will have their course fully-funded by the government (i.e. there is no course fee). Depending on the course, there may be additional costs such as equipment/uniform, DBS checks, printing and educational trips.

Life in lockdown has its challenges and not least is studying at home. Whether or not you have exams this year, it is still important to strive to do your best. Here are some tips to help you to stay on track.

We know that sometimes our students will be affected by many issues. The following information provides advice, tips and tools to help you make the best choices about your health, welfare and wellbeing and where to get support.  Just click the link to visit the website for support.

Now that you’ve completed your application, you’ll shortly hear from us to book an interview for your course. 

Booking your interview

We’ll contact you by email once an interview slot is available for you to book. You’ll choose a time and date which suits you (from selected dates according to the avaibility of the course director) through our student portal and details on how to do this will be included in the email. You can click here to watch our video tutorial if you're not sure how to log in to the student portal.

Once you’ve chosen a date, you’ll receive a confirmation email with further details on how to join your interview. 

What to expect from your interview

We use our course interviews to determine your suitability for the course. Most of our interviews double up as an information session, where you’ll learn all about the course and college life. Jonathan Boyall, course director for Professional Cookery – Level 2, said “college is a very different environment to school. The interview gives staff a chance to introduce themselves, their course and talk about what college is really like - we like for those new to the college to have the opportunity to answer and ask questions”.

Our interviews are generally relaxed but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be prepared! You’ll likely be asked the following:

  • Why did you apply for college?
  • What are you hoping to gain from this course?
  • What would you like to do as a career?
  • Is college (and the course) your first choice in September?

If your interview goes well, you’ll be offered a place on the course. You’ll have time to think about your offer but there isn’t a commitment if you accept your place during your interview – you’ll be able to change your mind or apply for a different course at any point before September.

You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions about the course - so make sure to read our top tips below!

Getting the most out of your interview - our tips!

Prepare - but don't be scared to ask questions

While you’ll learn more about the course during your interview, it’s worth spending time before your interview to use our website to prepare for your interview. You should use the course page on the website and videos on Virtual CWA to really get a head start on your interview.

You should also think about what else you need to know about starting a course at college. Have a chat with your parents / guardians beforehand and find out if there is anything they’d like to know and make notes of the questions you’d like to ask. You’ll always get the opportunity and it will show the interviewer that you’re actively interested in their course if you prepare a few questions to ask.

Review your interview invitation

It’s worth checking your interview invitation again as there may be something you need to do before or during your interview. For example, you may be asked to upload a picture of your predicted grades to the student portal or to prepare a portfolio for the interview. All of this will be included in your interview invitation (or subsequent emails).

Be yourself and leave a good first impression

Our interview session will likely be the first opportunity you've had to meet your course director - it's your chance to leave a good first impression. We'd like to know what you are good at, what your future plans are and what you'd like to get out of college. Paul Gibson, Programme Manager for Creative Arts, said "We want to see that you are enthuastic about the course you've applied for. We want to hear you talk about and describe what it is that you are looking forward to about studying at college". 

Are you aged 19 or older* and thinking about further education? With an Advanced Learner Loan, there are no upfront costs and you won't start to pay anything back until you earn at least £27,295 a year.

Below is a guide to how to access the main college learning systems from home.
