This page has been set up to provide information for anyone with questions or concerns about coronavirus (COVID-19). It will be updated as necessary.
On 3rd June 2020, the Minister for Education, Kirsty Williams (AM) issued a statement which provided important updates on the gradual re-opening of campuses. You can view this statement here: https://gov.wales/check-catch-prepare-summer-and-september-all-schools-wales-enter-next-phase
From Monday, 15 June 2020, our campuses will be able to partially open to small groups of learners in a phased approach. This will only apply to learners who need to undertake assessments in order to complete their qualification.
Learners must not attend college unless they are instructed to do so. In order to keep learners safe, we will let them know when they need to attend.
Pleased access our full communication to learners dated 03.06.20 here:
Learners should continue to access learning via Google Classroom and should check both their personal and college email accounts regularly for learning updates and tasks from tutors.
Instructions for learners and staff on how to access college systems (including Google Classroom) remotely can be found here on this page.
We will continue to review advice from Public Health Wales and Welsh Government and will publish all updates on this page. We will also publish any changes to our current status via the College’s main social media channels and via direct email to our staff and learners.
Safeguarding and Learner Wellbeing during COVID-19
Whilst Bridgend College campuses remain closed, the safeguarding and wellbeing of our learners and staff remains central to all that we do. We have created some guidance, designed to append the college safeguarding policy. This does not replace our fundamental responsibilities, expectations or standards expected by our staff, learners and other stakeholders.
As some campus based learning commences our behaviour expectations remain unchanged; we expect all learners to be ready, respectful and safe at all times.
We have implemented this annex, which appends our Citizenship Code and does not replace or supersede it. Learners should familiarise themselves with these expectations before attending any college campus.
Any updates will be issued via our official college social media accounts, our student app and via the college website. Updates will also be published via the student and staff portal. Students should also regularly check both their college and personal email accounts.
