  • Temperature checks as you come into college
  • Directional and one way systems in place around campus
  • Clear signage to encourage you to keep left and maintain your distance
  • Enhanced regular cleaning across campus
  • Hand sanitiser stations across campus
  • Curriculum bubbles that are marked with colour coded signage and student lanyards
  • Classrooms, workshops, salons and studios set out to meet guidelines for numbers and spacing
  • Perspex screens in public face to face areas
  • Teachers wearing face shields in classrooms
  • Face coverings to be worn around all public areas on campus (apprentices can also wear these in the classroom if they wish to)
  • Toilet facilities specifically for each curriculum bubble.

The learning journey must go on:

Amid this safety exercise, as the largest College group provider of apprenticeship in west London, we haven’t lost our focus on the learning priorities of our apprentices. The apprentices will still get the same high quality teaching and a great college experience in a safe learning environment.

It is important that our apprentices maintain the 20% off-the job training element through the changing circumstances, if required. To adapt the different eventualities and government requirements, we have developed appropriate delivering models to suit your evolving business environment. We are now fully geared for a blended delivery model that involves both on-premises face to face delivery as well as remote learning so your apprentices can continue their learning journey, uninterrupted.
