    Studying at College

    The health and safety of our learners and staff is still very important to us and so there may continue to be an element of study outside of the classroom during the, academic year. The proportion of these hours will depend on the individual qualification(s) being undertaken. You must do the work set during these times or it will impact your progress on the course and therefore your achievement.
