Induction – One Day – 5th or 8th July 2019

What is Induction?

The purpose of this day is to enable you to find out more about the subjects that you are interested in studying; to meet the teachers and other students as well as finding out more about the College and what you can expect as a student at Worcester Sixth Form College. It is helpful if you bring writing equipment with you.

Your Induction is planned on the subjects you discussed with your interviewer – this will be listed on the Induction page of your application. However, your final subject choices will not be confirmed until Course Confirmation at the end of August – so don’t worry if your plans change over the summer.

What do I need to do if I have changed my mind about what subjects I want to sample?

Log in to your application by midnight on Sunday, 23rd June to make any changes.

  • Go to the Courses@wsfc tab
  • Then go to the Induction tab to see how many sessions you have already selected out of the maximum available (6 subjects)
  • You will only be able to make changes to Induction Only subjects
  • If the maximum number of sessions is already selected, you will need to delete one that you want to change before you are able to add the new one
  • If you are considering adding any of the following options under Enrichment - Sports Academies, Performing Arts Academy or Duke of Edinburgh – please add this to your application as trials/auditions/meetings will take place early September.

How will I know where to go when I first arrive at Induction?

You are asked to arrive in the main foyer by 9.00am where you will be welcomed by a member of staff and given your programme for the day.  You will then be directed to either the Hall or the Learning Resources Centre to meet either the Principal or the Deputy Principal.

Please attend all the sessions shown on your programme. Your attendance will be registered and your Induction Programme signed at each subject session you attend.  Once you have completed your Programme, you will be directed to the LRC to be seen by a member of staff before you leave for the day.

We expect that all students will have completed their Induction by 4.10pm – some students may finish a little earlier.

If you are unable to attend the Induction day allocated to you, please telephone our Admissions Office and we will endeavour to make an alternative arrangement.  Please note National Citizenship Service are aware of our Induction Days and if you are involved with this over the Induction period you will need to ensure your Supervisor is aware of your need to attend WSFC.

If you change your mind over the summer about the subjects you wish to study, you will be able to discuss this at Course Confirmation at the end of August. You will receive an email during August advising you of your Course Confirmation appointment time.

The Learning Support team have arranged to meet me – how will I find them?

They will be waiting for you at the Meeting Point in front of Visitors’ Reception.

Why do I need to go to Induction if I am already sure what I want to study?

This is a unique opportunity for you to find out more about the College and the subjects on offer before you start in September and we believe it is important for all prospective students to attend.

What will I do about lunch?

Our Cafeteria will be providing lunch, free of charge, for all students. There are also vending machines available within the Cafeteria and you are welcome to bring your own food if you prefer.

Transport to College

Please note that you will need to check your transport arrangements for the day as some dedicated College buses may not be running.  Students who would normally catch the S23 can instead use 144/144A from Bromsgrove and Droitwich to Crowngate Bus Station which connects with service 44/44C up to Worcester Sixth Form College.
