From First Enquiry to First Visit
Enquiries for places at the Trust's three colleges typically come from
parents, guardians, Connexions advisers, social workers and schools. All initial enquiries should be made to the Admissions Coordinator at the college of choice.
They will discuss the learning and support needs of the prospective
student and advise on whether an Ruskin Mill Trust college placement is likely to be
appropriate. If an application is likely to be appropriate, they will send a prospectus
and application form to the referring party. If, however, they prefer
to visit before making an application they will make arrangements for them
to do so.
When the completed application form and accompanying reports are
returned the college admissions team will summarise them and produce a profile of the prospective
student's learning and support needs. They will then discuss that profile with the college management team and together they will decide whether to invite the
applicant to visit the college, if they have not done so before.
This visit, either before or after submitting an application, usually
lasts for about two hours. The prospective student and their party will
be shown around the college and they will have an informal chat with one
of the college's management team. They will be told about the college day and residential arrangements and they will have lots of opportunities to ask questions.
At the end of the visit, the student will be asked to write to the
college admissions coordinator to say whether they still want to pursue
their application for a place.
