Terms and Conditions

Completing the Application Form

We ask for information from you to make sure we are operating fairly and you are put on the correct course.

Why we ask specific questions is explained in more detail below.

1. Personal Details

This information is essential to keep you up to date on the progress of your application. 

If any of your personal details change please tell us as soon as possible.

2. Equality & Diversity Data Monitoring

This information is collected and monitored so we make sure all learners are able to access our services.

3. Learning Needs

This will make sure you have the correct support for your learning difficulty or disability.

4. Marketing Information

This helps us to judge the success of our promotional campaigns.

5. Declaration

Under The Data Protection Act of 1998 we need your consent to process your personal and sensitive data. Signing this application form means you agree to Furness College processing such data for any purpose connected with your course. Your information may be shared with other government and educational organisations performing research and statistical work on behalf of Furness College or its partners. (Please note that such data will remain securely on the College Information System).

A Parent or Guardian should also sign the application form to confirm that they endorse their son/daughter’s application if under 16 at the time of application.

6. Criminal Convictions

Furness College has a duty of care, particularly to learners who are under 18 year of age and any vulnerable adults.

In view of this all applicants are required to declare any relevant convictions at their interview.

Relevant convictions are only those convictions for offences against a person of a violent or sexual nature and convictions for offences involving unlawfully supplying controlled drugs or substances where the conviction concerns commercial drug dealing or trafficking. Convictions that are spent (as defined by the rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974) are not considered relevant and you should not reveal them.

We will not use the information you provide to discriminate against you but we may contact you for more information. Depending on the nature of your offence we may need to carry out an assessment which you would be involved in. This is done only for the most serious of convictions.

7. What happens next?

After completing your online application form you will receive an automatic email message confirming we have received your application form. 

If you do not receive this message please contact us on 01229 825017 or email

After submitting your application you will be invited to attend an interview. You will be notified of the time and date by post. At your interview we will discuss your preferred choice of course, entry requirements and support needs.
