A warm welcome to BHASVIC Parents' Information Pages. We recognise the importance of the involvement and support of parents and guardians of all of our students throughout their time at the College. The information included within these pages is aimed at keeping you informed about the College and what we expect from students, so that you can participate as effectively as possible in your son or daughter's education.
Parents Survey 2012-2013 – PLUS your chance to win an I-pad mini
At BHASVIC we value the involvement and support of parents and guardians of our students throughout their time at the College and we would be grateful if you would take the time to complete our Parents’ Survey 2012-2013. The survey is open until 30th June and it should only take 10 minutes. In order to increase the number of completed surveys, we asked students how we could encourage parents to take part. They said “Incentivisation works for us!” so there will be a prize of an ipad mini for one parent, chosen at random after the closure of the survey.

Student Social Events held outside the College day (8.30am-4.30pm) and/or off the College premises
Please be aware that the College cannot be held responsible for the safety, or behaviour, of any student whilst they are travelling to or from an event, and any time spent outside of the venue. The Venue Staff, Police and/or College can ensure safeguards are in place for students whilst they are inside the venue but are not in a position to extend this responsibility beyond the venue site or the times of the event.
Parents should be aware of the following conditions to which students must adhere when attending Student Social Events that are organised by the Student Union or College Staff. They are outlined on the reverse of the ticket and are highlighted to students at point of purchase:
- All students will be required to show valid BHASVIC ID on entry to the venue.
- If the event is licensed, and a student wishes to purchase alcohol, they must show valid photo ID.
- The venue staff reserve the right to refuse entry to students who are obviously under the influence of alcohol.
- They also reserve the right to remove students from the venue, and/or deny them re-entry, if they are behaving in aggressive, drunken or antisocial ways.
- The College and venue’s responsibility to safeguard students ceases when they are outside the venue.
The College would ask that parents/guardians support us in our policy of promoting responsible attitudes towards the consumption of alcohol. The promotion of responsible attitudes and behaviour can be put to the test by a minority of individuals at these times.If a student does not abide by the conditions above, they must accept that sanctions applied by the Venue staff, the police or the College as a consequence may well have an impact on their experience of the event and their position at the College.
HE & Progression Information Evenings for Parents – March 2013
We are aware at BHASVIC that the many recent changes in Higher Education can be confusing and difficult to navigate for students and their parents. The cost to the individual of studying a degree and the impact this is having on admissions policies at universities can mean that it is difficult to be confident of knowing the facts. To help you in your discussions with your son or daughter about what and where to study, or whether to study a degree at all, we invited all A1 parents/cares to an information evening. Please find below the presentations and materials used at these events.
If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
