Your Virtual Bridging Programme
Before you join the College in September, we want you to begin to develop your knowledge and give you an understanding of some of the techniques and skills you’ll need to be successful as a learner at Weston College. This year we developed a bridging programme that will focus on 6 core components that will be released in three blocks. We will be reviewing the bridging programmes and your learning as part of the induction process in September, so make sure you save a copy of completed workbooks or documents.
You’ll also have received messages through you the Team pages you have been allocated as part of completing your enrolment for September 2021. We will be releasing the other four components of the programme on the 28th June and 19th July, so keep an eye out for future notifications on Teams and on our social media. The links to those components will become live on these dates.

When you enrol you're automatically part of the Student Union (SU). As well as organising fun events and activities, one of the elements is to ensure that your voices are heard on your course.
Student reps are nominated and pass on your feedback in order to make the college life even better.
Once a year the SU also runs a campaign to elect executive members including President, Vice President, Secretary and Campus Officers for each campus.
Here's a list of helpful items we think you should take a look at before starting in September!
