 Frequently asked questions

 What is an accredited course?  

It is a course which enables you to achieve a certificate from a nationally recognized Examination Board, eg City and Guilds. The courses are assessed in a variety of ways, eg  course work, end-of-course examination, or building a portfolio during the course.

Why do we ask you to complete a Course Approval?     

We do this to ensure that students are enrolled on to correct courses and have the skills to manage the courses successfully. It is also an opportunity for you to inform us of anything that you would like the tutor or the College to be aware of before the course starts.

Do I need to do any preparation for the online Course Approval?

Please ensure you have read the course details, available on this website, and that you meet any entry requirements.

When you have applied for the course that you wish to enrol on you will receive an email containing information on an online assessment/approval for your course.

How do you allocate places on courses?

Places are offered to applicants on a first-come first-served basis, so early application is recommended.

If I am approved, am I guaranteed a place on the course?

No – once you have been accepted, you must enrol if you want to secure your place.

I am already a Sutton College student this year. Do I still need to attend?

If you are already a Sutton College student on an accredited course, you may not need to attend a course approval session if you are applying for a higher level course in the same subject and so please contact your tutor for more information.
