Coronavirus: advice and guidance
College updates for staff, students and visitors
Our main campuses at East Ham and Stratford are open, and are offering the full complement of courses through a mixture of classroom lessons and remote learning where appropriate. All of our college community venues have also reopened with the exception of North Woolwich Learning Zone, subject to agreement with our local authority partner, Newham Council.
In accordance with government guidelines, the College has planned a full return to study in place for students based on social distancing while in college and via “curriculum bubbles”.
The safety and wellbeing of our students and staff are of the utmost importance. The College will continue to closely monitor the coronavirus situation and will refine its approach in response to the latest developments and any change in advice from the government and Public Health England.
For students, there is a regularly updated guidance procedure which students should adhere to. This guidance remains in place until the government requirement for social distancing is removed.
The College maintains an up-to-date risk assessment of its premises to ensure students, staff and visitors can feel safe and maintain social distancing.
As of 22 September, we have had confirmed cases of COVID-19 within the College. The affected persons have been identified and students and staff who have had close contact with these individuals have been informed and been asked to self-isolate for 10 days.
We understand that you will find this situation concerning but the College is working closely with Public Health England to minimise any further risk and we have stringently followed government guidelines as outlined in the latest risk assessment.
All College sites remain open and students should continue to attend as normal if they remain well.
Advice about what to do in the event you develop symptoms consistent with COVID-19 are outlined below.
