Statement regarding Higher Education courses due to Covid-19 situation

Please find a statement regarding Higher Education courses and the Covid-19 situation from Eliza Treme-Swailes, Director of Further and Higher Education at Lakes College.

“Our top priority is the health and safety of our Lakes College community; our students and our staff.

“We are planning to begin the academic year in September 2020 as planned, for all new and continuing students. We are currently assessing the requirements to provide an appropriate learning experience on our campus at Lillyhall, in line with government advice.

“Our planned approach is that our Higher Education courses will be 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.   All face-to-face learning activity will be managed to enable social distancing and other safety requirements for the protection of students and staff.

“We will continue to access the government guidance over the summer and will provide more detail prior to the start of our Higher Education courses as to the different components of the blended mode of delivery for each course.”
