Covid-19 FAQs

All you need to know about keeping yourself and other safe on campus.

What have you done in response to Covid-19?

We’ve done lots of things at college to help you feel safe and be safe whilst you’re with us. We’ve undertaken a huge deep cleaning programme, and that will continue. Some of our staff may continue to wear PPE and have been trained in our new health and safety measures. We’ve got a lot of hand washing facilities around the campus.

Do I need to socially distance or wear a face covering?

Based on current Government advice you are not required to socially distance or wear a face covering in college. However, if you feel more comfortable keeping your distance from others in class please speak to your Tutor. You can also wear a face covering in and around college if you wish to do so and would advise that you do wear a face covering in communal areas – although this will not be enforced.

Do I need to be vaccinated to attend college?

We’re encouraging all learners to get their vaccinations before the start of term. If you haven’t yet had yours you can attend a walk-in vaccination centre. The nearest walk-in centre to the College is: Coventry Community Resource Centre, Red Lane, Coventry, CV6 5EE. Or you can search for a walk-in centre closer to you on the NHS website.

Do I need to do a lateral flow test before attending college?

It’s advised that before attending College, all learners undertake a lateral flow test and present the results at college. You can pick up test kits from most pharmacies. We’ll also be circulating test kits for learners. Please record your results on the Government website.

I've tested positive for Covid-19 - what should I do?

If your test is positive you should not attend college and follow the Government's advice. Please inform your Tutor if you’ll be absent from college because of Covid-19.

Will my studies or timetable be interrupted?

As restrictions have now been relaxed, currently lessons will be running as normal, on campus. Social distancing will not be enforced in classes but if you would feel more comfortable socially distancing from others in class please let your Tutor know.

What about public transport to college?

Many public transport providers will have their own Covid-19 measures in place. It’s important that you stay up to date on the guidance being issued by the companies themselves.
