Return to Campus - Risk Assessments

We have been working hard to make our campuses safe with a wide range of strict measures in place in line with the latest government and expert medical advice. Our main priority continues to be the health, safety and well-being of our students and staff. 

It is important that college guidance, available on our staff hub is followed at all times. Staff are required to complete a risk assessment before returning to work on campus; maintain 2 metre social distancing; wash their hands regularly and wear a face covering where it is appropriate.

Health and Safety

The primary function for Health and Safety is to advise, assist and support staff to effectively manage health and safety within the college. We continuously strive for improvement and we expect all our staff, students, contractors and visitors to help us achieve this by following our policies, procedures and guidance.
