Testing before returning to College

Thanks to students and staff who’ve collected and used their test kits over Easter. You’re helping to beat the virus and get things back to “normal” sooner. Ideally a test should also be done the evening before returning to College, or the morning before coming into College.

If you didn’t manage to collect your test kit in College, you can still collect from a local test centre and use before returning to College - more information here:
https://find-covid-19-rapid-test-sites.maps.test-and-trace.nhs.uk

Thanks and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Rapid lateral flow tests are for people who do not have coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms. More about rapid tests and other ways to get tests.

Since the first lockdown began in 2020, hundreds of thousands of people have died. Too many lives have been cut short and millions have been bereaved. Behind the statistics and whatever the cause, every death has been devastating for the people left behind.

Join us today, the first anniversary of the first UK lockdown, to reflect on our collective loss, support those who’ve been bereaved, and hope for a brighter future.

There are still tough times ahead, as the death toll continues to rise. This annual day will give us all time to pause and think about this unprecedented loss we’re facing, and support each other through grief in the years to come.

This week we would have been holding our 6th Annual Apprenticeship Awards at the college however due to lockdown this is unable to take place so we are celebrating some award winners of the past and present!

In 2020, Joanne Priestley was the winner of the Intermediate Apprentice of the Year.

“The confidence I gained during my apprenticeship has enabled me to take on a further challenge - I applied for and secured the position of a Police Dispatcher and I have been working in my new role for 9 months. As part of my new role I have also been asked to train my new dispatcher colleagues to take emergency calls which is a position I would have never imagined I would be in three years ago.”

This is Thank You Thursday!
Throughout a difficult year everyone's resilience has meant 200+ apprentices have been able to continue to train for their future career.

“Everyone I dealt with and worked with on the College staff, whether it be the two tutors I had over the years or the College Assessors, were interested in the subject of fabrication and this made learning from them much easier with this enthusiasm. Overall, it was an excellent experience and has helped set me up for life. Thank you!" Brad Smith.

Are you interested in a fabrication/welding apprenticeship?
