New Starter Info

READY TO START YOUR FUTURE?

We’re gearing up to welcome you for your first class in September, but before that, we need a bit of info from you, to meet you properly and to show you around KC!

It’s been a strange year hasn’t it? We know some of you haven’t been able to make it into the building, so we want to change that. We also need to issue you with your ID badges, get your official exam results off you and get all your information confirmed on our system! (As you can tell, it never stops here at KC!)

We do this in three parts over the summer; these parts are:

Part 1. Online Enrolment -- Part 2. KIT Days -- Part 3. Onboarding

LET'S GET YOUR INFO...

We need to get you all up and running on our system; all the information you give us is really important, it helps us work out registers, timetables and it officially gets you on your chosen course!

It’s time to look out for an email from us, we’ll be emailing you between the 19th and the 23rd July which will have our Online Enrolment link in it. Give it a click, fill out the details and then hit submit. Easy as pie. Don’t panic is you have any issues, you can drop our Admissions Team an email on admissions@kidderminster.ac.uk 

If you’re joining us to do Access To HE (Health Care Professional) your tutor will be in touch with you; your enrolment and onboarding process takes place late August/early September, so don’t panic!
