You will be invited to talk to one of our team for a guidance interview. Typically, we would invite you in to the College to meet with a Tutor, however, due to COVID-19 this may not be possible. During this time a tutor will contact you for a telephone interview, we will communicate how this will commence using the email address you provided us with on your application.
The Tutor will consider making a verbal offer at your interview, this will be based on your predicted grades and meeting other criteria. A confirmation email will be sent once your offer has been processed. We will try and get any offer to you as quickly as possible but on some occasions there may be delays should extra checks be needed, e.g. for a foreign national, EHCP recipients, safeguarding concerns.
It is important that if you have an Education, Health and Care Plan, that you tell us so that we can support you appropriately on your course. You can do this at any time, e.g. when you apply, when you enrol, or by emailing us at: EHCPenquiries_Cambridge@camre.ac.uk or EHCPenquiries_Huntingdon@camre.ac.uk .
For EHCP recipients, it is a statutory requirement that your Local Authority forwards a copy of your EHCP to the college for assessment. We work closely with all Local Authorities. It would help speed up your application if you have informed your school where you think you will be starting your education in September. A good opportunity to this will be at your Annual EHCP Review, or by informing your Local Authority by email. For Cambridgeshire Local Authority, please contact them via this email address email@example.com , informing them your name, date of birth and that you are applying to Cambridge Regional College.
