You will be invited to an interview following your application. This is an opportunity for you to receive more information and ensure you are considering the right course for your future.
Your application form will have given us some background information about you.
Your interview will give you an opportunity to talk in more detail and depth about yourself, interests and ambitions. You will also be able to find out more about the College and the course/s in which you are interested.
Getting to know you better during the interview means that we are able to make sure you are offered a place on the right course for you.
Before the interview there will be a group presentation for approximately 30 minutes, which will provide details about the College and the courses available. You will then be given an individual interview for approximately 15 – 20 minutes.
Your parent/carer/friend is welcome to attend the group presentation and individual interview but we may want to spend some of the interview time with you on your own. If you have applied for more than one course, you will have an opportunity to be interviewed for the alternative or additional course.
We would normally expect you to be in school uniform or smartly dressed in your own clothes.
One or more of the following, if you have them:
Please note: If you aren’t able to bring any of these with you, please be prepared to talk about them at interview.
Your offer of a place will be subject to you achieving or holding the required entry qualifications as listed in the prospectus and in your offer letter which we will send you within 10 working days of your interview.
After you have been offered a place, we will expect you to continue to work hard and, if relevant, attend school/college regularly and punctually and complete all your coursework as applicable.
Please note: If you haven’t yet had your individual interview with your careers adviser, don’t worry. It won’t affect the outcome of your interview at Bridgwater & Taunton College. If you bring a portfolio/examples of your work with you, please make sure you don’t bring any GCSE coursework which your school requires for assessment purposes.
