What does it mean for Apprentices?

During these times of uncertainty, our apprentices are expected to continue their studies via virtual learning similar to our other students. Make sure you are keeping regular contact with your assessor from the college for further help and support as you normally would. Your teacher may ask you to log onto Moodle to access shared resources and other learning materials. If you have any problems with accessing this, don’t be afraid to get in contact with us, we are happy to help.

 

Employers

Following the news that the Government will be extending the lockdown, all college buildings will remain closed and all of your apprentices will proceed to study virtually. Our assessors will no longer be able to visit your place of work and instead will maintain regular contact with you and your apprentice. If you have any worries or concerns, don’t hesitate to get in contact with our Apprenticeship team on Apprenticeship@yeovil.ac.uk

Key Workers

The College remains open and operational through our digital learning strategy while our campus is closed to the public.

If you need to come into college because your parents are key workers or you are a student in specific need of help and support, please contact us on 01935 423921 and we will be able to help.

All of our students will now continue their learning digitally, keeping regular contact with their lectures through many different platforms. If you are at all unsure of what is expected, get into contact with your lecturer and they will explain this to you.

We want all our staff, students and community to stay safe during these testing times which is why we are keen for you all to be mindful of the Government’s guidance which can be found here.

Latest Message from Yeovil College

Information: increased fraud risk during coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

We have received correspondence from our partners at the ESFA, who have asked us to alert our student and parent community to a potential risk:

Periods of instability, such as during the coronavirus pandemic, bring an increased risk of fraud. Fraudsters will actively exploit these difficult times and will target vulnerable areas for financial gain.

We have been informed by our partners at the ESFA that some learners and parents have received a letter from them asking for personal learner bank details in relation to the 16 to 19 Bursary Fund. The ESFA never ask for personal bank account details. This is a fraudulent letter – please do not respond.

The Yeovil college community has not experienced this and we have zero reports of this happening to any of our learners, so let’s work hard to keep it this way.
