Keeping you safe
Hello and welcome to Stamford College. We are looking forward to opening our doors and welcoming all our new and returning students, and staff again this September.
Our Teaching and Support Staff have all been working really hard over the summer implementing measures and procedures that will keep you safe. Although you will still expect to see your tutors for lessons online via Google Meet and Google Education, each course has also made its own adjustments and arrangements to make sure you can still participate in both classroom and practical learning on campus.
We will ensure you receive a full induction to these changes to ensure you understand your role in complying with the safety and social distancing measures in place.
So please don't worry. Our priorities have stayed the same and we are confident you can stay safe, and still have a fantastic college experience with access to all the support and resources you need to succeed on your course.
Updated handwashing advice
It is essential that everyone washes their hands more often, using soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Hand washing with soap employs mechanical action that loosens bacteria and viruses from the skin, rinsing them into the drain. Drying hands afterwards makes the skin less hospitable to the virus. Hand sanitiser can be effective if soap is not available or the situation makes using soap less feasible (i.e. when outside) but using hand sanitiser provides none of the virus-destroying friction that rubbing your hands together and rinsing with water provides.
