Message to learners and parents
Our highest priority is the continued health, safety and welfare of all our staff and learners.
We also recognise that it is very important to ensure our current and future learners are not disadvantaged in their education and progression plans into next year. We welcome the government’s encouragement for colleges and training providers to re-open, in a limited way, from 1 June 2020 because for some learners it is necessary to come into college/training providers to complete their course and undertake practical assessments and exams. The measures described in the documents linked below will enable us to do this during June and July 2020 in a safe manner for all concerned.
Your Course Tutor/Training Consultant will tell you whether you need to come into college or WBTC to complete parts of your course and assessment. You will only be asked to attend college/WBTC if it is absolutely necessary. Many learners can complete their course online and will not be required to attend in person.
The documents linked below provide detailed information about the measures WBTC is putting in place should you need to attend college/WBTC to ensure your health, safety and welfare and that of your fellow learners and tutors. You must follow these measures. If you do not you will not be able to complete your course and gain your qualification.
If you have any specific requirements, or if you are shielding or you are living with someone who is shielding, then please let your Tutor or Training Consultant know and alternative arrangements will be made for you.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, or are living with someone who has symptoms or has been diagnosed with COVID-19, then you must not come into college or WBTC. Let your Tutor or Training Consultant know.
If you can get to college or WBTC without using public transport that is best. However, if using public transport is the only way you can get there, then you should take sensible precautions to minimise your potential exposure to the virus.
Please note that the food outlets will remain closed so you should bring food with you if required.
You are only permitted to remain on the college or WBTC premises for the duration of your planned activity. Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes before the start time and you must leave the college site/WBTC at the end of the activity.
