September: What will it look like?

Recent Government advice suggests most students will be able to study in College provided they study in defined groups (bubbles), minimise contact with other groups, and follow the measures the College has put in place:

Student and Staff Safety

This is our priority. We are following government guidelines and have undertaken a full risk assessment (which is being constantly reviewed) to ensure appropriate measures are implemented to minimise the risk of Covid-19 transmission. These will include:

  • Social distancing measures across campuses
  • Classes taught in ‘bubbles’ where practicable
  • Blended learning to include online delivery as well as face-to-face where appropriate
  • Regular cleaning of classrooms and common areas
  • Hand sanitiser available across campuses and in classrooms
  • Staggered start/ end times and separate allocated entrances to ease congestion
  • PPE issued for specialist subjects where required (we continue to monitor and follow Government advice on this).

The Government have provided guidance for parents and students returning to College in September:
