Yeovil College students return to site
In another record-breaking year for student recruitment and application, Yeovil College has welcomed new and returning students back to site in almost six months. By transitioning students to a blended learning approach, where students complete theory remotely via activated teaching casted into their own homes, whilst maximising their onsite time for practical, workshop based sessions, many more students have been accepted into college. This considered approach enables the college to implement strong and robust safety measures, which has been a fundamental consideration to our students safe return.
Principal & CEO, Mark Bolton, said: “Our guiding principle to opening the college has been one of extreme safety for both staff and students. Our blending learning approach, based on remote access and casted learning, enabled by the capital investment created by being the only Institute of Technology in South Somerset, has enabled us to continue teaching using the most innovative technology. Our approach means that our students education will no longer be disrupted and we now have the instant means to flex up with more time in the classroom, or down, depending on the current environment.”
