From Monday 23rd March our courses are being delivered through remote online learning to support the government advice for social distancing. Learners are asked to log into their respective learning platform using their normal log-in credentials. Links to our online learning platforms can be found below or accessed through our internal services webpage. We have also created a frequently asked questions pages for learners and for apprentices and their employers which will be updated on a regular basis as the situation develops.

All Full Time, Part Time and Higher Education Programmes

All Apprenticeship Programmes 

The learning platforms will provide further information on course specific content and learning expectations during this period. Where possible, tutors will also be on hand during timetabled sessions to provide virtual guidance on completing learning materials and assessment activities. For learners undertaking maths and English qualifications alongside their vocational study programmes, they are also expected to visit their respective Canvas pages for directions on learning content and learning expectations. 

  • Courses that can't be studied online

    Whilst we have made every effort to ensure the vast majority of our programmes are able to be studied remotely, a small number of courses listed below have been temporarily suspended due to their vocational weighted content or requirement for face to face support. We hope you understand the rationale for this decision and of course we will be aiming to reschedule learning sessions for these programmes following the reopening of our campuses.
