Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  • How do the groups/bubbles work?
    We are limiting student/staff interactions by splitting classes into distinct groups or ‘bubbles’. It is important that you keep to your assigned bubbles at all times while in college, including your breaks. Please note that the groups have been separated this way for your safety and we are unable to make changes to them. 

  • Will I continue to be based at college?

    As long as Government guidelines allow, we will be providing some face to face learning activities following the above rules. If the guidelines change and do not allow face to face learning, alternative measures will be implemented so you can still continue your studies.

  • Should I wear a face covering?

    All learners and staff are required to wear face coverings in communal areas. It is also mandatory to wear a face covering while using public transport, so please make sure you do so if travelling on public transport to and from college. There is a face mask template available on CANVAS if you would like to have a go at making your own.

    It is important that we all follow these rules to keep everyone safe. If you are exempt, we advise that you follow government guidelines and carry an exception card with you. 

  • What other safety measures are in place?

    Additional safety measures to enhance everyone’s safety while at college include:

    • Learners should not leave the College during their breaks
    • Learners should bring their own packed lunch to eat on-site or continue to use our catering outlets
    • Learners should arrive at college immediately prior to their learning and leave once this is complete (with this journey being from and to home only)
  • We’re here for you!
