Hello and welcome to Havering College if you are 14-19 years old.
If you are leaving school and thinking about your future, the best choice of courses are here for you.
We consistently achieve results that are above national averages in all our courses and have a huge choice of subjects for you to choose from.
Our teaching is high quality and we are serious about achievement, as well as making sure that you are happy on your course.
As a student at Havering College, you will receive a wide range of help and support to make sure that you are on track.
You will have weekly tutorials, where you will discuss with your personal tutor how you are getting on and what you need to improve in order to achieve the best results possible.
We will help you plan for your next step after college and you will get involved in a number of events and activities to help you find out about what is on offer for you after you succeed with us.
We will ensure that you know about; our higher education and degree level programmes, how to apply to university and write your personal statement (required for your UCAS form) and what employers locally and nationally are looking for in potential employees.
You will enjoy getting involved in college life and we encourage you to take part in extra-curricular activities, so that you are enjoying your time with us and building other skills useful in your life, as well as extending your social network.
We have an active student union who will welcome you and encourage you to get involved. Our student services section will ensure that you get any help you need as well as providing a large calendar of social, sporting, information and other events for you to enjoy and learn from.
If you need financial help, there are bursaries that you may be entitled to. These have been created to replace the Educational Maintenance Award (EMA) and are available to help you meet the cost of being a student, such as helping you towards the cost of any kit or equipment you need as part of your course, or towards books, living expenses and travel costs. To find out more and see if you are eligible please contact student services.
So whether it’s A levels, GCSE’s, BTEC’s or other qualifications, you will see that we have them all here for you to choose from. Have a look at our School Leavers’ Prospectus to see which qualification, subject and level is right for you.
If you are interested in working as well as studying, you should check out our apprenticeships. These are available at level 2 and 3 and in a range of employment areas, and will help you build your skills and knowledge of your chosen industry.
Apprentices will attend their work place for most of the week and attend college the rest of the time.
Apprentices get the skills, knowledge, understanding and qualification in the trade that they are learning, whilst they are working and gaining experience, becoming confident and extending their practical understanding of the job. Apprentices learn whilst they earn.
