1 HE Admissions at NULC SPA Communities of Practice Liz Wyman

2 About Newcastle under Lyme College  Large tertiary college in the West Midlands  3,600 full time students, 800 part time adults  1,400 work based students, 1,250 apprentices  Small HE offer – around 400 students

3 HE Offer  Lengthy partnership with one university – formerly the SURF partnership  Just signed agreement with another university  Full time courses – FDs, HNC, HND, Fdn Year  Part time courses – FDs and Teacher Training  Across a range of subjects. Creative subject specialism.  Full time recruit through UCAS, via the university. New partner doesn’t use UCAS with colleges  Part time apply either to the university or to college

4 System nuts and bolts  Applications dealt with by college faculties (except Fdn Year)  All applicants interviewed – some by telephone  Some initially assessed for maths and English  In some subjects applicants exclusively from our level 3  Part time applications almost exclusively work based

5 Issues  Neither central nor fully devolved  Small staff teams  Course leaders stretched across provision  Different calendars  Small applicant numbers  Internal applicants  Feedback

6 Issues (cont)  Changes to university systems  Communication with university  Duplication of paperwork  Working with employers  Part time applications lack of structure  Communication between departments
