We are very pleased to welcome you as a student of Weston College for 2020. Regarding COVID-19, as a College we have responded in a professional and logical manner, with the safety of our students and staff our highest priority.
We will continue to follow government guidelines (and respond quickly to any changes in guidance) to ensure that the College environment remains safe as well as providing outstanding facilities, teaching and support for you to achieve your course goals and have a great time studying and building new friendship, as you work towards your career aspirations.
In order to do so we will work to a curriculum delivery model for the 2020/21 academic year that will:
- Have a focus on blended learning (split of classroom and online learning).
- Maximise face-to-face learning with learners in college as much as is feasible and safe to do so, with class sizes smaller than previous.
- Continuous access to support services both face-to-face and online.
- Offer great career advice and job ready skills.
As a College, we ask that you commit time, energy and effort to your studies in order to obtain the best possible achievements. We will continue to work hard to provide learning opportunities, environments and resources of the highest quality, to support your educational journey. Weston College is committed to the principles of safeguarding and equality and diversity, meaning we will do all we can to ensure your safety and protection while being opposed to any form of discrimination. We hope that you, too, will share these inclusive values.
Our campus guides provide you with important information which will support you during your time with us and will also make you feel reassured about returning to a learning environment following lockdown.
Should you need any further information please ask your personal tutor or contact any member of Student Services who will be happy to help.
May I take this opportunity to wish you an enjoyable and successful year at Weston College.
Dr Paul Phillips CBE
Principal and Chief Executive
