Virtual offer

In these unprecedented times, our priority has been to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our students and staff, whilst ensuring that teaching, learning and support continues. Supported by cutting edge technology and highly experienced tutors, we are confident that students will not be disadvantaged in their studies and will successfully achieve as planned.

To ensure you can continue to learn we offer a blended learning environment. Timetables will clearly identify on-site face to face delivery and when the delivery will be remote and done through our VLE Schoology and TEAMS/ZOOM. Your course team will make sure you understand how to access these and provide you with access to the online material you will need to access. Access to these will be through your college enrolment number and college email, enabling access to your Microsoft Office 365 account.

Our learning support offer is also blended, and you can expect the support package we have agreed with you after your initial assessment to include supporting you when you are learning off site.

 

Alternative methods of learning

  • You will receive a timetable that will highlight which lessons you will have in college or remotely. Remote lessons will be delivered to you by your lecturer via Teams or Zoom. This is an exciting way to learn and we will provide the support needed.
  • You will need to inform your tutor if you have difficulties accessing online learning.
  • You may hear the term ‘blended learning’ and this means different ways of learning – face to face, distance learning and a combination of both. You may be required to take videos of your practical work and send them to your lecturer for assessment.
  • You will continue to have a tutorial session along with English and maths if applicable
