Welcome to NESCOT
Nescot, Epsom's college of further and higher education, offers full and part-time vocational courses and apprenticeships to learners and employers from Surrey and Greater London.
North East Surrey College of Technology has become one of Further Education's success stories as we progress towards being recognised as outstanding. In January 2016 Ofsted inspected the college and said that teaching was ‘consistently good’, that students ‘enjoy being at the college’ and praised the progress made at the college since the last inspection in October 2010.
At Nescot we want to help you succeed in your ambitions. Our students value our welcoming, friendly and caring atmosphere and our lively learning community will help you to make the most of your time with us.
Our safe campus is set in the beautiful Surrey countryside and we are only 30 minutes away from central London with direct trains from Victoria and Waterloo. The large, free car park makes access easy for learners from throughout the region.
Attracting learners from the local community, nationally and from overseas, our range of courses include Further Education, Higher Education, professional, leisure, short, full and part-time courses.
We pride ourselves in being able to offer courses which meet the educational needs of our students, and in giving you the freedom to develop as an individual. The College offers progression routes at all levels and to our own Higher Education courses in conjunction with Kingston University, University of Greenwich and BTEC.
As you would expect from a leading college we have specialist practical facilities to help you to get the most from your studies.

We believe it is vital that learners have the support to get the best out of their college years and we do this through our tutorial and enrichment system.
The role of Personal Tutor is one of the most important within the college as he/she is there to raise aspirations and act as an advocate and guide along the learner journey. The Personal Tutor’s role is to inspire and support the students in managing his/her learning, to guide with enthusiasm towards achievement of goals and to reflect positively on the learning experience in a supportive relationship.
Nescot is committed to supporting its students during their time in college to ensure that they achieve their set goals and are ready for the workplace. In order to support the student’s personal and academic progress during their time at Nescot a tutorial programme will include:
- The Induction process which will last for a minimum 7 weeks.
- Tutorial will focus around 1:1s and target setting managing and monitoring the students study programme with their personal tutor
- Rigorous monitoring of attendance, punctuality and academic progress as well as action planning for each student focusing on all aspects of the students study programme (Vocational, English and Maths & work experience)
- Providing individual pastoral support for each student
- The promotion and delivery of an Employer Ready Passport in collaboration with The Employer Hub based at Nescot
- Progression into HE (internal and external) and progression to employment
Student Attendance Mentors:
Under the pastoral and safeguarding support at Nescot, we have three Student Attendance Mentors. The role of a SAM is to improve the attendance, retention and achievement of all students at Nescot. A SAM will monitor and mentor students who are at risk of dropping out of college, or not succeeding on their study programme due to internal and external factors. SAMs also assist students in the completion and achievement of their study programme through referral to internal or external support systems if needed.
