The Phased Return to College
Returning to Study
The Colleges is planning for more students to return to College from the Monday 15th June in line with Government guidance. Throughout the lockdown the College has remained open to support face to face teaching of vulnerable students and family members of key workers and we are extending the number of students coming into College. The Government has very strict guidance on which students this applies to and the tiny steps we can take towards more students returning to College, including making it clear that online learning should remain the main method of learning at this time.
Who will Return?
- The first stage of the plan for some students to return focuses on continuing to support vulnerable students as well as starting to bring back some groups of 16-19 year olds who need to complete key practical sessions for health and safety reasons. This is important to support them in safely progressing into employment or the next stage of study. This will also include students who are over 19 years who are in classes with those aged 16-19 years.
- After this we will start to phase in more 16-19 year old students who need to complete key practical sessions to ensure they have the skills and knowledge to progress.
- We will then look to extend the criteria of those allowed to return to College to complete key practicals in line with further Government guidance.
Tutors will be in contact directly with students (and their parents/guardians) for those whose groups fall into the first stages of these plans.
New Health and Safety Rules
There will be new rules in place for students coming into College to ensure everyone is as safe as possible. Your tutor will go through these rules with your class before you return and you will be reminded of the rules when you arrive on site. Should you have any queries please speak to your tutor.
