How do I apply?

Information about the College and our courses are available in this prospectus and on our website  where you can search for courses, download detailed course information sheets and submit your details online to start the application process. Alternatively you can contact us for course details on 0303 003 1234 or if you have a specific question you can email

You can speak to our tutors about which course is right for you at one of our Advice Evenings. The National Careers Service offers free advice to anyone aged 13 upwards, on skills, careers, work and life. Contact them on 0800 100 900

Request an application form
Print a full-time or part time application form or contact Admissions for an application form on 0303 003 1234. You can also collect one in person from one of our five centres. Note: all completed applications must be sent to the Admissions office at the Enfield centre.

Complete the application form
Fill out the application form and return it to the Admissions office at the Enfield centre as soon as possible. Our courses are very popular and we allocate places on a first come, first served basis. To avoid disappointment we advise you to send in your application form early. (Applications received after 14 August 2017 are considered late applications and will be handled differently.) Reference forms are required for full-time programmes so to speed up your application, your reference form should be returned together with your application form.
Students aged 19 plus need to include a deposit of £40 for all courses which secures a place subject to meeting entry requirements and availability. This is a non-refundable deposit unless the course does not run or there are changes to timing/location that is not convenient.

You will receive a letter or email from us acknowledging receipt of your application form.

Your interview
You will be sent a letter or an email inviting you for interview.
Interviews are scheduled in centres where full-time courses are based, from December 2017 onwards. If you do not meet the entry requirements you will be offered guidance for possible alternatives. If you are successful at your interview you will be offered a conditional or unconditional place, dependent on criteria such as a satisfactory reference being received and achieving predicted grades.

Second interviewor learning support assessment
You may be invited for a second interview or assessment by Student Services to help determine which course is most suitable for you and/or what support you might be eligible for. Once the tutor has received the assessment feedback and the course is deemed suitable with the conditions set, you will be sent an offer or be given the opportunity to discuss alternatives.

You will receive a letter or an email usually 3 to 4 weeks before the start of your course telling you when to come to the College to enrol. It is vital that you attend enrolment in person as you are not guaranteed a place until you have paid your fees, signed your Learning Agreement and obtained your student ID card. Students who have not fully enrolled will not be allowed in the class until officially enrolled.

Completed application forms and reference forms should be sent to:

Capel Manor College
Enfield Centre
Bullsmoor Lane

 Please note:

  • All applicants for full-time courses and apprenticeships are interviewed in order to assess their suitability for the course. Basic Skills screening tests for literacy and numeracy are conducted at interview sessions. If we do not think that the course you have chosen meets your needs then we will discuss other options with you.
  • We aim to respond to applications within one week of receiving your application. Please ensure you have completed your application form fully as incomplete applications will be returned and delayed applications could result in not getting a place on your chosen course.
  • The allocation of a place does not mean you are fully enrolled. The College holds enrolment sessions which you must attend in order to enrol on your chosen course.
