Coronavirus Guidance

Updated 11 June 2020

In response to the latest Government announcements, Cheshire College – South & West Campuses remain closed to all visitors and all learners, except for those whose parents are key workers and our most vulnerable learners. Our number one priority continues to be the safety of our staff, learners and stakeholders.

With the latest government guidance released 11 May 2020, the College is currently preparing for some additional face-to-face delivery prior to the end of the academic year, and not before Monday 1 June 2020. We envisage that these changes will only affect a small number of learners, for example, those who need to complete assessments to become professionally competent. At this point in the time the College continues to deliver, where possible, teaching, learning and assessment to learners via our virtual learning environments.

It really is important to stress that at this stage nothing changes in the way we are currently operating.

Communication will continue to be directed to learners College email accounts. It is therefore essential that learners check their College emails frequently. All learners who need to return to College, will be contacted by tutors in the upcoming weeks.

As with all educational facilities across the UK, we continue to receive daily updates and advice from the Department for Education (DfE) and Public Health England and will continue to follow the advice they provide.

Ofqual published guidance on how grades will be awarded for GCSE, A Level, Vocational and Functional Skills provision this year. Links to each individual set of information can be found on the tiles below. Rest assured that the College is working hard to ensure we have all the information ready for when it is required.  This information is strictly confidential and teachers are not permitted to share this with learners.
