Induction Day 2019

Induction Day 2019


This page has been created to inform you about our upcoming Induction Day on Friday 5th July. If you have anything you are unsure about before reading this, hopefully it should be cleared up within the document.

Welcome Assembly and Tutor Session
Upon arrival, you will be directed to the Sports Hall to collect your timetable and information sheet. Around 8:50am staff will start directing you to either the Students’ Union for the Welcome Assembly & Presentation or to classrooms for your first Tutor Session. Students who attended the Welcome Assembly will then go for a Tutor Session, and students who had the Tutor Session will then go for their Welcome Assembly.

Session 1 and Session 2
At 9:50am after all students have attended both their Welcome Assembly and Tutor Session, the first session will take place. Session 1 will end at 10:50am with a 30 minute break for all students, and Session 2 running from 11:20am – 12:20pm. 

Lunch and Tutor Session
At 12:20pm, Group 1 will have Lunch while Group 2 have a Tutor Session, and then from 1:00pm – 1:40pm the two groups will swap. At Lunch, you will have the chance to order your New College hoodie or/and hat from the ‘Official’ clothing range, which will be ready for when you enrol in August.

Session 3 and Session 4
Following Lunch and the Tutor Session, all students will then attend Session 3 which runs from 1:40pm – 2:40pm, followed by Session 4 at 2:40pm – 3:40pm.

Final Tutor Session (Change of Course)
To end the day, students will attend their final Tutor Session which takes place from 3:40pm – 4:10pm. Here, students will have the chance to discuss changes to their selected course before leaving site.

Bus Information
Buses will be leaving college slightly later than normal at 4:10pm to allow adequate time for students to arrive at Pontefract Park in time. Information regarding the purchase of the Bus Pass will be provided in Tutor Sessions taking place on Induction Day.

We appreciate that students may be nervous and unfamiliar with the campus, so our staff will do everything to make you feel comfortable and ensure you have a great experience at New College Pontefract. We look forward to seeing you soon!
