How to Enrol on a Course

Joining a course at Thurrock Adult Community College

Search Find a Course and click on 'Enrol Now' or 'Enrolment Information' to book a course, assessment or register for a waiting list. We continue to keep our fees as low as possible, thanks to co-funding from the ESFA. Any prices can be found against each course listing, including any fee remissions or reductions available.

You will need to open or login to your account. Previous learners can email us on to reset their password. You will then be enrolled onto either your course or pre-course assessment.

For qualification courses, you will be contacted by our friendly Assessments team (this is to make sure you are on the right course, pay the correct fee, know about any financial support and understand course requirements or discuss any support required) before receiving a course offer.

If you are unable to enrol online, email our Learner Services team on or call 01375 372476 during opening hours who can arrange for you to either enrol over the phone, or book an appointment for you to come onsite, with any relevant paperwork for fee concessions.
