Please see the email below sent to all students by CEO and Principal, Caireen Mitchell re: Coronavirus on the 18th March 2020

Dear Students

As you will be aware the Government has asked all schools and colleges to remain open at this time.

I was very pleased to see so many of you come to college today to continue your studies.  I sincerely hope the exams went well for those of you who had exams today.

The college is working hard to minimise the potential of the coronavirus to disrupt your education.  As per an earlier email we have also been working on strategies that will enable us to continue to support your studies online, should we be asked to close the college to students.

Please note that from tomorrow some areas of the college,  in classes where all students are 19+,  will move to online learning.  Those students who are to be taught online will receive a text and an email today to let them know of these arrangements.  Where lessons are moving online staff will be available online to guide and support you at your normal timetabled hours.  If you have any queries or need support please contact your tutor.

For all other students classes will continue as normal tomorrow and we will monitor the situation on a day by day basis.

Please help keep our college community safe:

  1. If you have a fever or a continuous cough, please do not come to college, go home and follow government guidance on self-isolation.  If you are at home  in self-isolation please contact your tutor to let them know.  They can then make arrangements to support your studies from home and ensure that your absence does not affect any bursary payment you receive.
  2. When in the college, please continue to follow the government advice on handwashing and hygiene.

With sincere thanks for your hard work to keep our college community safe.
