Firstly, thank you for the huge interest in joining or returning to your studies at Hartlepool College. We are having a record enrolment which, in the current landscape, is even more pleasing than normal. That said, this significant increase in student enrolments and the extra precautions we are putting in place to make you safe have led us to make the difficult decision to POSTPONE INDUCTION OF FULL TIME LEARNERS UNTIL THE WEEK BEGINNING 7th OF SEPTEMBER.
This decision has not been made lightly, we are desperate to get our new academic year up and running and for many of you signal the start to education after several months without any. However, as we have put in place strict adherence to the Government’s guidelines for COVID 19 security the increased demand has put an added pressure onto our building.
Our number one priority is your safety, this additional preparation time allows us to modify our building to meet our increased demand whilst maintaining the highest standards of safety.
Prospective students – you can still apply online by finding the course of your choice https://www.hartlepoolfe.ac.uk/courses/finder and clicking apply.
Recently enrolled? – our tutors will be in touch by 2nd of September with a revised induction timetable.
Progressing students – If you haven’t yet re-enrolled, please contact student services using the Livechat function. If you have, your tutor will be in touch by 2nd of September with a revised induction timetable.
Apprentices – our apprenticeship team will be liaising with your employers to coordinate your enrolment, don’t worry this won’t have changed from the original plan.
Higher Education and adults – your induction forms part of your start to college so don’t worry your plans haven’t changed.
