Buckinghamshire College Group would like to reassure all staff, students, parents and business partners that it is following the Public Health guidance issued by the Government and its agencies.
Update: National Restrictions from 5th November 2020
You will all be aware that England has a entered a period of national restrictions from 5th November. During this time for our full-time study programme students the College remains open and nothing will change to your timetable or attendance.
If your GP or hospital has identified you as being in the clinically extremely vulnerable group (see the College risk assessment on the website for definition) and you have a letter saying this, you should not be attending college during this time, and continue your studies remotely. Please talk to your tutor who will ensure that you are fully supported.
The government guidance to colleges for adult learning is to move from face to face learning to remote, virtual learning, where possible during these weeks. This will not be all adult learning as some students will need to access the college resources and facilities. Your tutor will have contacted you to let you know about your course. Please contact your tutor if you have not heard or you are unsure.
I would like to remind everyone that we all have a big part to play in reducing COVID transmission. Please ensure that you are taking personal responsibility for:
- Washing or sanitising your hands regularly – there are sanitiser stations all around the college campuses
- Keeping 2 metres distance where you can
- Keeping your work stations and equipment clean
- Do not attend college if you have symptoms, however mild and let college know if you do, or you have taken a test and the result
- Wearing face coverings around college, corridors, communal areas including the refectory, toilets and on public transport including college transport
And of course we are all here to support you to learn and gain your qualifications, so make sure you are attending all your classes whether at the campus or on virtual timetables.
If you have any concerns, please do talk to your tutor or to our Student Services team who will be very happy to help.
