Starting College

We pride ourselves on our COVID safety procedures and practices that have supported and kept our students safe throughout the pandemic and we continue to put our students and staff at the heart of that safety.  On starting or returning to college we will be following 4 simple rules:

  • MASK – We are respecting your choice to wear/ not wear a face covering
  • SPACE – We are encouraging you to keep practicing social distancing measures, ventilate rooms and get fresh air when on your breaks
  • SANITISE – continue to wash hands and sanitise both hands and learning spaces
  • TEST – We are asking our staff and student to test themselves twice a week


We have supplied testing kits as part of our enrolment service. But don’t worry if you haven’t got any tests; we have a testing service on all our sites for the first two weeks of term from 6 – 17 September.

We ask you to test yourself up to 3 days before starting at college, and then again within 3-5 days.  After that we ask that you test yourself regularly (every 3-5 days apart) and record your test.  The bar codes for registering your test results are displayed around the college campus.

Student Services

Once you arrive at college, if you find you need support, our friendly Student Services Team are here to help you.  Just visit the Student Services Desk located in each of our Buildings.

Lanyard and ID Badge

Whilst you are on college premises, it is vitally important that you wear your student ID.  Please make sure that you wear your lanyards at all times.  Your lanyard will give you access to the college buildings.

Lastly, don’t worry! Our staff are here to make sure your start at college is as easy and enjoyable as possible.
