Yeovil College Students Return To Campus
Yeovil College students and staff have returned to site this week to recommence their blended learning timetable, which will see students maximise their practical time in workshops and real-world environments, whilst continuing to learn theory remotely from the safety of their own homes.
Principal & CEO, Mark Bolton, said: “It is uplifting to see students return to campus. There is a real buzz on campus, the sun is shining, and you can visibly see that people are happy to be back.”
Yeovil College was one of the first colleges to introduce a ‘lateral flow’ test and trace testing centre to a college environment in Somerset, and this, along with many other safety measures, has played a key role in enabling students to return to site, safely.
Mr Bolton continued: “The safety of our students and staff continues to be our first priority and our guiding principle to reopening the college has been one of extreme caution. Our testing centre has been a real success and I would like to thank staff who have worked tirelessly to make it so.
It is once again business as usual for our students and staff who are now extremely familiar with our blended approach; the result being that not a single day of education has been missed at Yeovil College.”
Yeovil College students returned to onsite learning on Monday 8th March and will continue to follow a blended timetable to limit the spread of Coronavirus, and in doing so, limit disruption to their learning.
