Following the announcement of local lockdown restrictions in County Durham by the Health Secretary today, we recognise that students may have questions about whether there are any changes to their education at South West Durham Training.
While restrictions have come into place, there are no additional limitations on schools or colleges. As a result, we intend to continue with our current curriculum delivery method, which includes a mixture of socially distanced on-site teaching and online classes. Should this position change, all students will be informed in advance.
We continue to follow all Government guidelines on campus, including 2 metre social distancing whenever possible, compulsory face coverings in communal areas, one-way systems throughout the building and limited class sizes. We have no confirmed cases of coronavirus amongst staff or students at the time of publication and are closely monitoring the situation.
Students should contact their Student Progress Mentor or tutor to discuss any changes to their circumstances caused by the announced lockdown measures.
We will continue to provide regular updates as circumstances change.
