South Gloucestershire and Stroud College runs a probation system with learners classed as being on probation during the first six weeks of their course. During this period, learners will be assessed based on attendance, attitude, punctuality, aptitude and performance; this will be clearly stated within a learner's course handbook, which is issued to at the start of their course. Within the course handbook, it also states what is needed in order to progress to the next level of a learner's programme of study. This will be based on end of course achievement, attendance, attitude and disciplinary record.
*Please note, fees are payable from the start of your study programme and regardless of whether you pass or fail your probation period.
