Latest news and Plans for Teaching

17.05.2021 (Monday)

Our classes are currently scheduled to be returning on 06th September 2021 with the hope of face-to-face teaching however this will be confirmed closer to the start date. We continue to have plans in place and in line with government guidance to respond if there is an increase in the number of cases, or an outbreak associated with covid our classes will continue to teach digitally until September 2021.

Our plans identify proportionate options to restrict in-person contact (including in-person teaching) where reasonable and necessary in the event of local outbreaks. In addition, our plans cover scenarios including:

  • increased prevalence of infection locally that requires interventions in the whole community, including students and staff.
  • a large-scale outbreak that may impact on the activities of our college as per Government updates.

Students need to make sure that they have the information about their timetable for the remainder of the term. Our Student Welfare team will have told you if there were any changes and if there are any impending changes. Please check with student welfare or your teacher if they have not already told you. The lectures, seminars, tutorial, discussions, and presentations will be carried out face-to-face or using our online teaching platforms.
Following the Government’s recent update on Coronavirus please see below for the latest plans for teaching.

Face Masks

With the possibility of a return to classes the College have decided to continue for the moment to wear masks in high contact areas of the College, e.g., classrooms/ workshops.

There are some circumstances where people may not be able to wear a face covering. This includes (but is not limited to):

  • people who cannot put on, wear, or remove a face covering because of a physical or mental illness or impairment, or disability.
  • where putting on, wearing, or removing a face covering will cause you severe distress.
  • to avoid harm or injury, or the risk of harm or injury, to yourself or others ‒ including if it would negatively impact on your ability to exercise or participate in a strenuous activity.

Social Distancing rules will still apply in communal areas – for example corridors, and canteens, coffeeshops in and around the College.

Well-Being and Mental Health

Our Senior Management team realise that some students and staff will have additional mental health needs which cannot be met within the HE is setting. We are aware of the government’s Mental Health Recovery Action Plan, the government has provided an additional £13 million to ensure young adults aged 18 to 25, including university students, are supported with tailored mental health services, helping bridge the gap between children’s and adult services. Students are a key part of this population and face some unique challenges in the transition from school/college to university, including access to support from NHS mental health services.
We strongly recommend that the students should make a contact with the College Welfare department if they need any help and advice via email at


The College is committed to support our students and staff members and ensure safety throughout the coronavirus pandemic in line with the latest government and Public health England advice. Our outmost priority is the safety of our staff and students.

In case of a second wave of COVID and the government guidelines change, we will move all the educational services using our online facilities. We will commence our terms as per the prescribed timetable with tuition and tutorials online.

We will continue our educational delivery using a blended learning model where the courses will be delivered via a mix of on-campus and online activity. Our on-campus delivery will be carried out in line with government advice and instruction, including the appropriate social distancing requirements.

If you are unable to join us on campus at the start of your course, we are offering a fully online lessons for many of our courses as long as there are no specific requirements for on-campus activity (e.g. workshop, simulation sessions) that cannot be managed online.

All our courses and modules will be delivered using Canvas VLE and MS Teams from September 2020. These platforms are simple to use and will allow you to have online conversations with your lecturers and peers in groups and on a one to one basis.

We are putting in place several additional health and safety measures across all our campuses. These include:

  • If a student is worried about coming to the College and need to shield for health reasons, then that student can access the courses online.
  • We will be conducting our courses using a blended approach, which is a planned combination of socially distanced campus-based teaching and enhanced digital learning.
  • All students will have opportunities for face-to-face on-campus interaction with their academic tutors and peers – although this will be conducted in smaller groups that reflect social distancing and related guidelines
  • The lectures, seminars, tutorial, discussions, and presentations will be carried out using our online teaching platforms.
  • We will be controlling the access of physical facilities to meet the social distancing guidelines. Library facilities will be offered through online
  • We have appropriate social distancing and cleaning protocols, controlling staff and student movements around campus, and other measures such as supporting the wearing of face coverings in certain appropriate circumstances
  • The students will continue to get personal support from their lecturers and benefit from the College support services such as finance, welfare services, student services, etc
  • We are committed to providing you with a high level of wellbeing support and this will be carried out through a dedicated team which comprise of our tutors and support staff providing advice and support

We strongly recommend that the students should make a contact with the College Welfare department if they need any help and advice via email at
