Since we partially closed, we have worked hard to move our existing longer courses online as much as possible, to ensure our students are able to continue their studies. Student welfare advisers have contacted existing students to identify any needs they may have to assist with their continued learning and to offer support.

For the safety of our students and staff, we are not currently providing short courses, which are designed as face-to-face provision, with the benefits and framework of the residential experience.

Our Student Services team is contacting students from this academic year to offer pastoral support and to signpost if relevant to services within the community. The contact from Fircroft is being received well.

In discussions with students and referral partners, the college continues to explore new methods of delivering courses during the current UK lockdown period that will support the local community with relevant and needed provision to help people through this difficult time.
