What about hours of attendance and absences?

Classes for full time learners will not normally be timetabled to begin before 9am or finish after 5.30pm but this may vary according to the course. Each learner has an individual timetable and it’s a good idea to make sure you have a copy of this so that you know when they will be in college.

On average, a learner will have between 15 - 16 hours a week of contact time (teaching hours) spread through the week. Every learner will also have college work to complete at home. This will include, for example, course work, assignments, research and individual study.
