Hi,
What do we use?, "enrolled in" or "enrolled for".

Both enrol in and enrol for mean register.

1) 'for' of enrol for indicates the object, aim, or purpose of an action or activity

EX: enrol for school/enrol for the course/enrol for special offers

2) 'in' of enrol in indicates placing one's name in a roll, list, or record

EX: enrol in school/enrol in the course

If the object of 'enrol', say, school or course, refers to a list you can add your name to, then use either 'in' or 'for'. If the object of 'enrol' does not have a list you can add your name to, then you can't use 'in'

EX: enrol for special offers (OK)
EX: enrol in special offers (Not OK)

'special offers' doesn't have a list you can add your name to. That is, you register to get (i.e. for) special offers.

All the best, :D
