I’m sure you will have heard that the examinations you had planned to take this summer have unfortunately now been cancelled.

 

We appreciate how disappointed and upset you must be feeling given that you won’t get the opportunity to showcase all the hard work you have undertaken over the past couple of years.

 

We are currently awaiting further details on how your work and performance will be assessed, although we believe this will be based on your assessment being marked by your lecturers.

 

As soon as we have clarity on this we will let you know. But in the meantime I would like to give you some advice that will help you to achieve the best grades possible and allow you to take your next step, which may include a higher level course at a top university, an apprenticeship, a job or progress further within the College.

 

The advice is please don’t forget your studies.

 

Assessments and grades will certainly be based on work undertaken to date and therefore there could be opportunities to both tidy up and possibly even improve this work.

 

At the same time assessments etc. could be based on future work provided by lecturers through a mix of live and pre-recorded sessions or set work. Therefore, it is important you keep in contact with your lecturers and tutors, in accordance with your set timetable, and by the method your tutors have set out.

 

Already some universities and employers are indicating that future interviews will enquire how students used their time effectively to study and learn during the Covid-19 outbreak.  

 

We firmly believe that if you successfully complete all of your course, then this will put you ahead of other students who may not follow this advice, both in terms of securing the best offers from universities and employers.

 

The next few months may be very different for all of us, but that doesn’t mean we’re not still thinking of your future. As our students, we are committed to giving you the greatest number of opportunities possible.

 

So please keep up the hard work, and with the continued support of your lecturers and the College, I have no doubt whatsoever that you can still achieve everything you want to.

 

Stay safe

 

Mark Jones

Principal

The College has listened to your views and through numerous channels I.E Student Management Group and Vocal eyes and we are delighted to tell you we are now able to increase our vegan offerings. As well as the standard vegan options available our catering manager has put in place a new call to order system to minimise on waste. You simply request a vegan option to the catering staff and they will be able to prepare you a vegan meal. (as it will be cooked to order there will be a slight wait). 

There was also a request for more vegan snack and sweet options and we now have an additional vegan snack bar being sold across campus and Vegan Magnum Ice creams are also available.

We see this as a brilliant and positive start top improving our catering offerings and want to thank everyone for your comments and suggestions to make this happen.
