Following yesterday’s Welsh Government announcement of a firebreak lockdown across Wales, the College will close to all but essential staff at 6pm on Friday 23 October for half term.

From Monday 2 to Friday 6 November, the campuses will remain closed, but all teaching will be delivered online.

  • Apprenticeships will also be delivered remotely
  • EMA will continue to be paid
  • GCSE resits and university entrance exams will continue to go ahead. Further details about these, and all other scheduled exams, will be available soon
  • Only identified essential staff will be permitted on campus.

From Monday 9 November, we will return to our teaching model that we introduced in September. This includes face to face delivery for all our full time students, and a mix of online and face to face for part time students and apprentices. 

Further details will be released soon about part time courses due to start from Monday 2 November.
