Dear students,
Welcome to South Thames Colleges Group.
We are delighted that you’ve made the decision to come and study with us at the start of what is
going to be an academic year like no other.
We know that your time with us will be highly successful and that we will work with you to make
sure you have a great future ahead of you after College. Your teachers will work with you over the next few weeks to agree your goals and make sure you are stretching yourself to do your best. We expect you to attend 100% of the time (whether you are at College or having an on-line lesson) and to work hard, but will support you with all the challenges you have to tackle.
But we are also very keen to keep you safe against the possibility of Coronavirus infection.
We ask you to do two things before you start College in a few days’ time:
1. Please read our ten rules on the attached document . It is vital that you play your part in keeping Coronavirus out of our Colleges and help us protect our staff and other students.
2. Please review your own risk. We have a risk profile document attached that sets out all of the possible risk factors and would like you to consider whether you need additional advice or to take further actions to protect yourself.
We have also changed our curriculum to make sure it allows for you to attend College safely and we have specific measures in place in each part of the College. Your tutor will explain these measures to you and we ask that you stick closely to the plans we have made for your safety and wellbeing.
Thank you so much for coming to study with us. We’re looking forward to getting the year started soon and wish you a very happy, productive and safe programme of study at South Thames Colleges Group.
With best wishes,
Peter Mayhew-Smith
Group Principal/CEO
