Covid-19

Posted on June 25, 2020 by Kingston Maurward

As the current College year draws to its ‘official’ close today, we are continuing to work with specific students to ensure they are gaining the relevant industry licences to make them safe in their respective career fields and this will continue into the summer.

We are working extremely hard behind the scenes to ensure we can provide all of our students with an exceptional learning experience in September.

Our promise to our returning students and those of you who will be starting with us in September, is that we will be providing you with an inspiring learning programme that develops the skills, knowledge and behaviours you need to progress to the next steps in your chosen career path.

We are planning a ‘hybrid’ model for most students which will involve attendance two days a week onsite in College and significant work to complete remotely online using the Microsoft Teams platform. We are committed to supporting our students’ learning, and also have their welfare and the health of them, and their families, uppermost in our minds. We will be providing training to ensure all students can access the learning opportunities.

We continue to hold discussions with our transport companies to ensure a model can be developed that keeps students as safe as possible whilst travelling to and from College, and in line with government advice. Further updates on this will be provided once the guidance is clear on the use of public transport.

We will be starting the enrolment process from Monday 17th August  – returning learners will be sent information of a specific time slot to attend, be able to sign their new learning agreement and complete other processes.

Enrolment for new students will start the following week Monday 24th August – new learners will be provided with a specific time slot and location on site to attend to complete the process.  Enrolment packs and information will be sent out before the end of July.

We continue to interview and engage with those of you who have applied for commencing studies in September  and we look forward to welcoming you to Kingston Maurward College. If you have not yet applied we want to reassure you that it’s not too late to submit your application, please follow this link and complete the form.

We will be launching our virtual Open Day on Saturday 4th July where you will be able to see what the campus has to offer and the opportunities available to you here at the College.

We are using the current situation to upgrade much of the campus and infrastructure of the College and as I write this a new climbing wall is being installed that will greatly enhance the resources for students on our Outdoor Education and Uniformed Public Service study programmes.

Can I take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support and patience during these challenging times. Stay safe and please get in touch if you have any queries.

Very best wishes

Oliver Symons

Deputy Principal (Learning & Performance)

 

 

Short Courses

To ensure the safety and well-being of our clients and staff, and in light of current Government guidelines regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to deliver short courses throughout April and May. We are keeping this decision under constant review and will announce a new programme of exciting courses once we are in a position to do so.
