Scarborough Tec reopens to all students from Monday
Scarborough Tec is reopening to all further and higher education students and apprentices from Monday.
All lessons will be run as per normal timetabled sessions and students are being asked by the college to contact their programme leader or success coach if they are unclear about their current timetable.
In line with government guidelines, students and staff are expected to continue to wear a face covering when in social spaces and circulation areas. In addition, the Government has now requested that they are also worn in classrooms and workshops were social distancing of two metres cannot be maintained. Students or staff who are medically exempt from wearing a mask will continue to be exempt.
The college will be offering three coronavirus tests to all students, on a voluntary basis, on their return. Information will be sent to all students with details of how to access these tests and the plans to offer further home-testing kits once the initial three tests have been conducted.
The Wellbeing in Mind team, who offer emotional, mental health and wellbeing support to students, will be available to any student requiring support before or on their return to campus. Students are being asked to speak to the relevant success coach who will provide them with information on how to access this service.
Students who access support for travel on public transport to college through the bursary, are being reminded to ensure their digital ticket is ready to be activated on the app before their first day of travel.
Any student who receives free college meals through the bursary will have all payments from Monday made to their student college account, so they can purchase meals in Waves when on campus.
For questions about travel support or access to free college meals you can contact the college by email at [email protected] or by calling (01723) 356104.
