Your health, safety and wellbeing are our number one priority.
We have been working hard to ensure our campuses are ready for you to safely come to College. We have put a number of safety and social distancing measures in place to provide a safe and compliant environment and minimise the risk to you and your tutors.
All of our classrooms, workshops and social spaces have already been arranged to make sure we meet social distancing guidelines.
Face coverings will have to be worn when travelling on College transport and moving around campus. We will provide all of our student facing staff with reusable face shields to be worn as an extra precaution when a 2m distance can’t be maintained.
We recognise that some people are not yet confident being around others so we have introduced a red badge scheme. These can be requested and picked up from campus Reception desks for you to wear while you are in College. If you see anyone with a red badge on, please respect their wishes and keep your distance.
We are really lucky to have such spacious campuses so that we can spread out and limit the numbers of people in each space, ensuring we can be together safely.
Moving Around Campus
To help you move around our buildings at a safe distance, we have introduced designated entrance points, one-way systems and clearly marked out our corridors.
No matter where you are in the campus, you will never be far away from being able to wash your hands and there will be sanitiser readily available.
Our brilliant cleaning team always work hard to make sure our College buildings are sparkly clean. They have taken this up a notch with a focus on extra cleaning and sanitation of surfaces.
We have introduced additional signs to remind everyone how they can do their bit to help reduce the risk.
This guide provides information on staying safe on campus before starting College. On your first day your tutors will cover ‘Keeping You Safe’ as part of your induction. This will make sure we all understand what we need to do to keep ourselves and each other safe.
We have tweaked our timetables, to avoid overcrowding in our entrances, cafés and social spaces.
There will also be restrictions on how many people can use facilities like the toilets at any one time.
