Coronavirus – Covid-19 January Lockdown 2021
The safety and health of our staff and students is our highest priority during this new period of national Lockdown. Study House is remaining open and we will do everything we can to maintain the levels of service you expect from us. But following government advice all staff are being encouraged to work from home and will be given as much time off as they need to care for themselves and their families.
To ensure that all aspects of the college remain fully operational we have taken the decision to revise the opening hours of the student helpline. This will now be available between:
1pm – 5pm Mon – Fri.
We advise students to email their queries where possible as these will be answered throughout normal business hours.
Please read the following advice which we are issuing to all students.
Please follow all medical advice from the NHS and Public Health England.
(or local health authority if abroad).
We anticipate that delays in the postal system will continue. Wherever possible please send all correspondence, assignments and registration forms electronically to avoid delays.
We will do everything we can to ensure our students are not disadvantaged during this period of uncertainty. If you are required to take time out of your studies due to illness or because of self-isolation please make a note of the dates and we will endeavour to add a suitable extension to the end of your tuition period should you need it.
Students that require a placement to complete their courses:
Many of our students that require a placement to complete their course will now be unable to attend their school or nursery placement during lockdown. We advise these students to continue working on the questions and assignments that do not require practical evidence. In mid Feb (once we have a better idea for the overall situation) we will be able to give details of extensions that are available to students on these courses.
