SGS College is delighted to welcome back current first year students from the week commencing 15 June for a face to face personal tutor session.
After an extended period of College closure due to the Covid-19 outbreak, SGS College is delighted to welcome back current first year students from the week commencing 15 June for a face to face personal tutor session. All current learners will be contacted to discuss their individual appointment time over the course of the next week.
Having been part of the collective effort to remain open throughout the pandemic for vulnerable learners, and children of key workers, latest Government guidance and extensive risk assessments mean the Stroud, Filton and WISE campuses can now receive students back in to undertake a face to face session with their tutor in a small group arrangement mindful of all social distancing guidance.
All sessions will be set up in locations that facilitate social distancing with extensive investment having being made to ensure all health and safety requirements are in place before any learners or staff return to the campuses.
Sara-Jane Watkins, College Principal comments:
“After a very challenging period of College closure we are delighted to be in a positon to start welcoming learners back to SGS College.
Staff and learner safety is at the forefront of all planned activity and we have taken robust steps to ensure the environment is conducive to social distancing and that staff and learners feel safe.
With so many young people not having had any face to face delivery for a number of months and many having had their exams cancelled, it is more important than ever that we start to re-engage face with students and to bring some semblance of normality back.
However, we understand that some learners may still be anxious about being onsite so we will continue to offer alternative modes of engaging with the College online, including enrolling, undertaking tutorials and completing projects in preparation for the new academic year.
We have really missed seeing students on campus and are looking forward to welcoming them back.”
A more extensive opening of the campuses to cater for commercial, sporting and practical based activities will be considered when guidance suggests it is safe to do so, but all of these facilities currently remain closed.
