Current guidance for students and staff 

The government has changed how we manage COVID and has announced the ‘Living with COVID-19’ strategy.  

In order to minimise the spread of COVID-19 you are encouraged to continue: 

We all have a part to play in continuing to minimise the spread of COVID-19 and along with undertaking the above we ask all students to be considerate of others and the college community. 

If you do have any concerns or questions then, in the first instance, please speak to your tutor.

The Wellbeing team, based in the Wellbeing Hub, can help and support you remotely or in person. Studying at college in a subject that you’re passionate about is exciting, but it can be daunting too especially during the current situation. We know how important it is to stay focused on your studies but we recognise that life can get in the way sometimes. If you are finding things difficult, it is important to know that you are not alone.
