COVID-19: Information for all College users

We’re really looking forward to welcoming our students in September!

All students will receive a full programme of learning from w/c 7th September (start dates will differ according to the course you are enrolled on). Study Programmes will consist of face to face delivery at College, with some virtual learning where students will access their class via a digital platform and an expectation that some work will be completed independently either at home or on College premises.

The exact mix of these different types of learning will depend on the course you are studying and will be explained fully to you when you start your course in September during your induction. This new approach to the timetable is planned for a short period initially to allow a safe return to college and it will be reviewed in line with changes to national guidance, with the aim of returning to a more normal timetable as soon as it is safe to do so.

Your safety on the College campus is of paramount importance to us and we have been working very hard to put things into place to ensure this. This means that College life may not be the same as it was last year or compared to your experience at school. We have created a video which will help you become familiar with the changes before coming in to the College in September.
