First students and apprentices are welcomed back onto campus


We are pleased to say Gloucestershire College has welcomed some of our students and apprentices back onto site this week.

The first who have been allowed back onto campus are students and apprentices who are ready to complete their qualifications but cannot do so remotely, for example, apprentices with assessments in construction and engineering.

“This week has been a big success. Our staff are delighted to see students face-to-face again after weeks of delivering courses remotely. There is a real buzz of excitement around the College to finally welcome some of our students and apprentices back.” – Julie Tegg, Director of Apprenticeships at Gloucestershire College

Our class sizes have purposefully been kept very small and we are following all of the social distancing measures set out by the government. We even have a one-way system in place around the College. The safety of our students and staff is, and always has been, our highest priority.

In the next couple of weeks, we are looking forward to welcoming back some IT students and apprentices who have technical exams coming up, which can only be completed within the College. We will also be delivering some classes for students who are completing Function Skills English and Maths.

Throughout lockdown, we have been delivering teaching remotely and are really proud of our students and apprentices for how they have quickly adapted and engaged with their studies.

Read all about how our classes have continued online and how our apprentices have maintained their learning, and our plans for phased return for students and apprentices.
