The College campuses are temporarily closed to students as of 19th March 2020. The College will move to online learning for all classroom-based students for the final two weeks of term, with face-to-face lessons ceasing at the end of timetabled lessons on Wednesday 18th March.
The Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) remains accessible to all students and we encourage you to use the next two weeks to access the online learning resources ahead of the summer term and any exams and other assessments for your course.
We intend to recommence classes in line with the published summer term dates (w/c 20th April), which effectively means a restricted period of two weeks as the following two weeks are the College’s scheduled spring break.
We will continue to write to you over the coming weeks with key updates, including planning around the beginning of the summer term. Please ensure you check your college email regularly in order to stay up to date with the latest information. We will also continue to post updates via our website and social media channels.

The advice around prevention continues to focus on washing your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds using soap and hot water, particularly after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, or after being in public areas where other people are doing so. Use hand sanitiser if that’s all you have access to.
To reduce the spread of germs when you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or your sleeve (not your hands) if you don’t have a tissue, and throw the tissue away immediately. Then wash your hands or use a hand sanitising gel.
You should also limit physical contact with others as much as possible.
