NESCOL (North East Scotland College)
S3-S6 NESCOL School Links – Offer Letters
An electronic offer letter for each pupil who has secured a place on a SCHOOL LINKS COURSE has now been sent to the PUPILS GLOW EMAIL ADDRESS.
We ask that they view the 15 minute pre-recorded Welcome Webinar on receipt of the offer letter. You may also view this for information at https://bit.ly/3flwGPC The letter also has a link to a subtitled version for those that require it.
The offer letter also provides the pupil with their individual NESCol Student ID number. This number will be required for their NESCol email address and to log in to our Virtual Learning Environment, Blackboard. Nescol teaching teams will be using many delivery tools similar to those pupils have been experiencing with schools in recent months, albeit from a different launch platform. The instructions on how to log into Blackboard are available via the webinar. They will not be able to log in just yet as they are not yet enrolled, but we will complete this process in time for their return after summer and send a reminder of how to access Blackboard at that time, and the webinar will remain live as a reference point for them and their parents.
We would like to ask them all to complete the online form at this link (also in the letter) https://bit.ly/3foi6Xz by Wednesday 1st July. This will allow us to identify anyone who has perhaps not read their letter, chosen not to engage at an early stage, or who has ICT barriers. We will then be able to work with you to encourage engagement or resolve any issues.
I appreciate there will be very many questions from pupils and parents that cannot be answered at this time, if you have any queries please email the school liason team firstname.lastname@example.org and we will pull together responses to the most frequently asked questions.
Where a pupil has been identified during the application process as having a need for a Learning Support Needs Assessment, the team who carry those out will be in touch either direct with the pupil if we have their contact details, or with school on return after summer.
On your return after summer we expect to have further course by course information in respect of delivery methods.
If you have not received an offer letter please contact email@example.com immediately.
