Policy for the admission of applicants under the age of 18
In April 2021 a number of changes were implemented to the Policy for the admission of applicants under the age of 18. These changes potentially affect all students.
The changes made
- The requirement for Students aged 16 or 17 (other than those in Scotland applying as part of the Young Applicants in Schools Scheme (YASS)) to submit their application at least 4 weeks ahead of the published final enrolment date.
- Learners on apprenticeship programmes have been brought into scope of sections 2.1 and 2.3 only.
