Hello, I’m Kate Martin and I’m deputy principal here at Derby College Group. Let me be the first to welcome you to Derby College Group. You’ve made a great choice in studying here. This video will introduce you to all aspects of life at Derby College, including getting online, course specifics and student support. The facilities here are topnotch, the courses stimulating, and the qualifications recognised by some of the country’s top employers. All technical and academic roots will provide you with the skills and attributes needed to prepare you for the next stage of your life and the world of work. We’ve got a great community here at Derby College Group and this video is designed to help you get involved. First things first, getting here. You’ve got plenty of options for travel. Broomfield is the only campus with student car parking facilities, but you shouldn’t have any problems wherever you are coming from. If you are local to the city or within a couple of miles you might want to take advantage of the good cycle paths to get here either by bike or even walking. The train is also really convenient with the station right outside the Roundhouse Campus. There is a short walk to the local bus service to travel to Broomfield and a 20 minute walk to the Joseph Wright Centre. All Derby College Group campuses are secure and safe with state-of-the-art facilities. The first thing you’ll need to know about is your ID card. It’s important that you wear your ID all times. You’ll need it to gain access to the campus. Your ID card can also be used for things like printing, photocopying, and borrowing books. It is essential that both staff and students display their ID at all times. You are not allowed to issue your badge to others or allow anyone else onto a college campus. This is for safeguarding purposes, ensuring that everybody stays safe. Here at Derby College, we’ve developed a great community which we’re very proud of, and it’s vital to that community that we all understand the expectations we have which are for the benefit of everyone. We have 5P’s of Professional Behaviour. These are our five things we expect our students to aspire to. They are positive, polite, punctual, prepared, and professional. These character building qualities will support you on your college journey. We understand everyone is different. Our expectation is that everyone is positive about each other’s differences, valuing and respecting each other, being patient and tolerant of each other, as well as respecting our peers, staff, and learning environment. We don’t have specific college uniform, however, we expect people to wear clothing which is appropriate for yours and others’ learning. Please be aware that woolly hats, baseball caps and having your hood up indoors are seen as unprofessional and therefore prohibited. There is also no littering anywhere on campus and eating, drinking and smoking or vaping are restricted to designated areas. We are all responsible for safety and for alerting members of staff if you see or hear something which is a risk to yourself or others. We are also responsible for ensuring we follow the health and safety guidelines and are familiar with the fire exits and assembly points. DCG places the highest importance on safeguarding and the safety and wellbeing of students is paramount in all college activities. If you’ve got a problem or are worried about someone you know, it can be hard to know what to do to make the situation better. You don’t have to manage on your own. Talk to a trusted member of staff, pop and see the student welfare team on site or contact them online. We are here to help and support you all the way. You are here to get the best you can from lesson time and you are expected to attend all elements of your programme and on time. We have high expectations on attendance and punctuality. If attendance falls below 93% intervention will be put in place to support you to improve. If you’re going to be absent for any reason, it’s important that you follow the absence reporting process. You should also make sure you get to all lessons on time with your mobile switched off and prepared to learn. Student life is not all about academic and technical qualifications. There is an expectation you all gain some valuable work experience and contribute positively to the community via social action projects or raising money for a chosen charity. All these experiences enhance and develop your personal and employability skills. You will get opportunities to meet employers to gain insight to specific industries, understand careers within the sector and deepen your knowledge on the world of work behaviours expected. You can support our employers with live projects, helping them solve their problems and showcasing your skills. Taking advantage of the breadth of experiences at college enhances and develops your employability and study skills, supporting you with your next steps to your desired destination. Whether this be further education, higher education, employment with training, or an apprenticeship, you will have access to a breadth of supports including a pastoral coach who can support you with breaking down barriers to learning, a work experience mentor who can help you to prepare for the world of work, as well as a dedicated careers advisor who can explore future options and offer personalised careers with guidance. You will have access to our learning support services who can offer small group work session, one-to-one support in our supportive and fully inclusive base rooms, access to assistant technology, adapted resources, and issue advice and guidance on how you can manage yourself. We are here to help you on your journey to your next steps. We are here to educate, advise and guide you on your career pathway and we want each and every one of you to succeed. Make the most of your time whilst at college. Work hard, show effort, and all the rewards will follow. Welcome to Derby College College.
