Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

24/25 Full-time Courses

New Full-time study options will be available soon for those wanting to apply for September 2024.

SGS College holds collaborative Careers Expo with MPs office to highlight opportunities to young people

South Gloucestershire and Stroud College, is holding a Careers Expo on 2nd and 3rd March to showcase the vast number of progression options that are available to them.

The event has a sustainability theme which is at the heart of the College’s ethos – to become carbon neutral by 2030.

John Walker, Head of Careers at SGS College added:

"SGS College is committed to providing students opportunities that radically changes lives and society.

As part of our 'professional futures' strategy, the Careers Expo which is taking place on March 2nd and 3rd, at our WISE Campus, will give 1,200 of our level 3 students the chance to have meaningful encounters with 16 Universities and up to 30 local companies.

Whilst they discuss university course choices, work experience, summer jobs and apprenticeships with the experts, students will enter a challenge to make the event ‘Carbon Net Zero’. They will pledge a personal action around food, clothing or travel which has a carbon credit, that offsets or exceeds the carbon emissions of the event. This innovative approach will encourage a can-do attitude in students, that small life decisions and bigger career choices can make a positive difference to all."

This is a joint venture with local MP, Jack Lopresti, who’s office helped organise the event and which he will be attending on Friday.

Jack Lopresti, comments:

“I have been working with SGS College to help organise the Careers Expo 2023 which offers a fantastic opportunity for students to interact with employers and apprenticeship providers, and universities. The event will be all about students’ potential prospects and what they can be doing to give themselves the best possible start in their chosen careers. “I am delighted to support SGS College which offers a model for education and shows great results in supporting technical education and guiding people into thriving industries and valued careers”.
