Why Choose NPTC Group of Colleges?
Our open evenings give prospective students and parents the opportunity to experience the College and its facilities and find out more about the range of subjects and courses we have on offer.
Students and parents will be able to see the educational experience that NPTC Group of Colleges provides, having the chance to ‘have a go’ at certain subjects or trades. You will also have the opportunity to discover life outside the classroom and see what the College offers in terms of extra-curricular activities.
We want everyone to enjoy their time at College and expect good behaviour from all students, including respect for others.
The Student Code of Conduct explains our key rules and regulations.
Students should familiarise themselves with this policy which can be found on Moodle.
We have a formal Student Disciplinary Procedure. Staff will make students aware of any issues of concern. All students are normally entitled to go through each stage of the Student Disciplinary Procedure (other than for serious offences). However, there may be times when the nature of the behaviour results in a written warning or exclusion even though it may be the first time such behaviour has taken place.
There are normally 4 stages to the Student Disciplinary Procedure:
- Verbal warning
- Written warning
- Final written warning
- Serious misconduct, leading to exclusion
Where appropriate, we will involve parents/guardians in the Disciplinary Process; this will usually be regarding instances of repeated behavioural problems and/or serious incidents
