    1. Log in to the Learner Portal using the login details you set up when you applied.

    If you have forgotten your password, click on the Forgotten Password link to reset. 

    2. Fill out your personal details (e.g. Name, address etc.)

    3. Provide other details such as household situation, equality and diversity, residency, employment etc.

    4. Upload your evidence - upload one item at a time (scanned or photos).

    Evidence required: 

    • Photo (must clearly show your face and no hats)
    • Evidence of examination results (16-18 year old learners)
    • One of the following: Valid UK Passport, UK Driving Licence, Birth Certificate or National Insurance Card

    • How will my induction work and when will I get my timetable?

      16-18 year old full time learners will have received details of your induction by letter. On your induction day, you will be greeted at reception by your tutor. They will escort you to your classroom and introduce you to some of your classmates. You will be shown around the College and your tutor will share your timetable and introduce you to your virtual learning environment, as well as explain how you will learn during your first term at college.

    We look forward to welcoming you to Team BSDC!
