Further Changes to Dates of Onsite Teaching

Updated Wednesday 27 May.

Following the Government’s guidance at the weekend regarding the opening of further education colleges, the College will now recommence learning from week commencing Monday 15 June. To that end, we will be delaying their induction and teaching to fall in line with this decision. 

Please note that the return to onsite teaching will be for students who are required to undertake assessments in order to complete their qualification and progress to the next level or into employment. Those students who are required to return to College will be contacted the week commencing Monday 1 June. 

 

Update Friday 22 May.

When we reopen we will be prioritising students that need to come onto campus to undertake a practical assessment in order to complete their course. We will continue to be open for any students with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP); those with an assigned social worker or a child of a key worker (including NHS, police and delivery drivers).
