Latest Health Advice and Guidance on Coronavirus
Update 3rd April 2020 – Guidance on summer exam grading received
Update 24th March 2020
In view of the latest Government advice in relation to COVID-19, the Weymouth College Interview Evening on 23 April 2020 has been cancelled. We will continue to review the situation as regards future interview dates and be in touch with any student that has been allocated an interview date in due course. Students should monitor the email contact details that they have supplied to us.
Please be reassured that this will not jeopardise the opportunity for students to enrol with us as we will make alternative arrangements to conduct interviews, such as by phone. If we do decide to conduct interviews by phone, students will be advised of this in advance. Students should also continue to apply online in the usual way.
Update 17th March 2020
Given the decision by the UK government to move into the delay phase of combating the Covid-19 virus, we have decided to suspend face to face teaching and delivery from Monday 23rd March until the end of term (Friday 3rd April). Online teaching resources will be made available for students wherever possible and students will be given guidance from their tutors.
Update 11th March 2020
We are keeping up-to-date on the latest government advice regarding Coronavirus and at present Weymouth College remains open as normal.
Should we need to make alternative arrangements we will ensure all staff, students and parents/guardians are notified.
We are following guidance and instruction from Public Health England and the Local Authority regarding COVID-19/Coronavirus.
Below you will find the current advice for places of education from Public Health England:
