The College has an expectation of 100% attendance which is followed up if attendance drops. It is the student’s responsibility to inform the College if they are absent – just like they would if they were at work. If they are going to be absent – even if it is for just one lesson they must either:
- Telephone the Absence line on 01233 743101 and leave a message. If they leave a message, they must speak clearly and:
- Give their name
- The course they are on
- The reason for their absence
- When they expect to return
Or text 07860 002032 starting the text with abi followed by their name, Student ID number (found on ID badge) and the reason for their absence.
- If they know they are going to be absent then they should inform their Personal Tutor beforehand. They are expected to arrange personal appointments like non-emergency dental appointments and driving lessons outside College time so that they don’t interfere with their attendance.
Please Note: Holidays are not to be booked during term-time
