Blended learning approach

Our courses are now being delivered in a blended mode, using a mixture of online learning with face-to-face sessions as appropriate and, where it is safe to do so, on the College site. By following this approach, it ensures the safety of all our learners and staff by limiting the number of people onsite at any time.

All face-to-face learning activity will be managed to enable social distancing and other safety requirements for the protection of students and staff.
