As of end of Tuesday 17 March 2020 we will be suspending all face to face delivery of adult (including Higher Education) learning until Monday 20 April 2020. The College is remaining open, as per government advice, however we are building operational models that align with the current international crisis.
We are aware that an increasing number of students are unable to come on site, with many caring for family or themselves. This is limiting the ability for students to focus on their learning and qualifications.
The lesson suspension will be taught at the end of the programme or through additional catch up sessions.
During this time, the College will be preparing the resources needed to support a remote learning model so we can restart learning on-line after the Easter break should the government decide that colleges should not reopen. If that is the case we hope to move to an online-learning model where the programme allows it.
Those students enrolled on a full Distance Learning course will continue as normal.
Exams booked to take place up to Easter will go ahead as planned. Additional advice will be taken if the number of student taking the exam will be constitute an event.
We understand that students may have lots of questions, but I am sure you can understand that the College is having to take decisions and begin planning at which time more information can be communicated when we have this. We appreciate your patience.
We will be in contact with students during the next two weeks.
Please take care of yourselves and each other.
