How are we keeping you safe?

Your health, safety and well-being are our number one priority. We have implemented a number of measures, in line with government guidelines, to ensure that you, other students and our staff members remain safe during the pandemic.

  • bubbles

    Bubbles

    Each curriculum area at college will be a “bubble”, this means you will spend time with your bubble and you won’t interact with others whilst at college. Breaks and lunchtimes will be staggered and during the day movement around college will be kept to a minimum.

  • face mask

    Masks and face coverings

    You are asked to wear a mask or face covering when moving around the College and in communal spaces, however, this will not normally be required when in the classroom and within your bubble.

    Please note that some members of the college community may be unable to wear a mask or face covering due to health or disability reasons.

    Timetables and access to College

    Timetables for your induction and regular classes have been carefully considered to limit the number of people on site at any one time. Please do not attend the college campus outside of these allocated days.

    A one-way system has also been introduced in communal areas. Please follow the directions were possible.

If you have recently returned from any of the countries listed as requiring you to quarantine upon return, you should not come into College until you have completed the 14 days quarantine.
