Enquire about studying with SCL and based on your eligibility and location we will talk to you about what programmes we have that are suitable for you. We will then be able to book you on to open days or open evenings at one of our education centres depending on which programme you would like to find out more about.


This is your chance to find out more information about the programme and ask any questions that you may have. We will use this time to find out more about you and collect important information to ensure you are eligible for funding and in preparation for your enrolment onto the programme.


Following your interview if you meet our eligibility criteria for funded education with SCL, you will receive a conditional offer to start your programme and take your next steps on your career journey. You will need to confirm in writing in response to SCL you are happy to accept your offer to secure your place.


Depending on which education centre you have applied to study at you may be invited to a taster session. This will allow you to get a feel for what it will be like to train and educate at one of our centres. Please note taster session availability will differ from centre to centre.


Good luck! You will receive an invite to a GCSE results drop sessions in August at your chosen study centre. We will review your results to ensure the programme you have applied to is still suitable for your next steps or if another programme may be more suitable. During this stage of your application, you will also be able to finalise your enrolment with your tutor to ensure you are ready for your start date.


Congratulations! We look forward to seeing you for your induction week and the start of your education experience with SCL. In the lead up to your start date you will receive information supporting you with what to bring and anything you need to do ahead of starting your first week with SCL.

Since starting his SCL programme, Dylan has been a dedicated learner on and off the field. With a fantastic attitude to training and education, his playing ability has allowed him to break into the first team at CACT’s partner non-league side, Welling Town. Dylan has a promising future in store, with his recent performances having even caught the eye of Charlton Athletic’s academy scouts.
