Over the summer, up until you enrol with us, you will experience a variety of activities that will help your transition from high school to college.
Watch our short video below to find out what you can expect:
get ready, get on the platform
Get On The Platform is part of our summer transition programme aimed to give you a taster of the subjects you are interested in and get to know college staff and other like-minded students.
We want you to be confident in your choices on this next stage of your educational journey and the Get On The Platform has been tailored specifically to help you achieve this.
On Get On The Platform, you can sample the subjects that you are interested in the most by having a go at some fun and exciting activities (more information about these activities is further down in this newsletter). These activities will give you a better understanding of each subject so that you know that you have made the right choices before you enrol.
Each subject has its own dedicated channel where college staff will:
- Schedule live chats and Q&A’s with teachers.
- Create spaces to chat with like-minded students.
- Post fun and engaging tasks to complete.
- Suggest resources from podcasts, books, videos, and more.
HOW TO LOGIN: GET ON THE PLATFORM
Get On The Platform has been created in Microsoft Teams which some of you may be familiar with. You will access the Platform via the Microsoft Teams here. You will need to log into the MySFC Hub using your college Microsoft login details which are:
- Your username is your student email address, which is your student ID followed by @sfc.potteries.ac.uk. Your student ID will be included in your Get Ready for Sixth Form Pack which has been posted to your home address.
- Your password is Sfc + your date of birth written in a six-digit format i.e. If you were born on the 3rd October 2007 your password would be Sfc031005.
If you are struggling with accessing or how to use the Platform do not worry, we have created two short step-by-step videos below:
