Latest Updates

01/07/2020 – Adult Learners

We have moved from face-to-face learning to online and flexible delivery of learning for qualifications so that all your hard work can be rewarded and for most learners, you will be able to continue your course and qualification online. We are working with awarding bodies to gather evidence of learners’ achievement and are working to evidence achievement on non-qualification courses via internal documents.

In line with the latest Government guidance, City College is still closed to learners but we have moved to online and flexible delivery of learning.

We are currently planning for what the easing of the lockdown might mean to allow us to resume some sort of more normal service to learners and supported people, while keeping everyone as safe as possible. Our planning is guided by government advice and we plan to publish our new Course Guide for August to December 2020 in mid July.

In the meantime, thank you for your understanding and patience and we hope all our learners and supported people and their families and friends stay safe and healthy.

09/04/2020 – Examinations Update

We understand how unsettling the past few weeks have been since the announcement that examinations are will be cancelled this summer. The Department for Education and Ofqual have provided more concrete guidance to Schools, Colleges, Parents, Carers and students in relation to the calculation and awarding of grades.

On 9 April, the Education Secretary issued to Ofqual clear direction on how the government expects vocational and technical qualifications to be assessed and awarded in the coming weeks and months. Please see below:

“We recognise students taking qualifications, alongside or instead of GCSEs, AS and A levels, to progress to further or higher education urgently need to know what arrangements will be put in place for them. We have worked closely with the Department for Education, awarding organisations and regulators in Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland to develop our approach and are today confirming that these qualifications will be awarded a calculated result. Learners due to take assessments for Functional Skills qualifications before the end of the summer will also receive a calculated result.”

You can read more detail on this here.

We want to reassure all students who were due to sit examinations this summer that the College has reviewed the guidance for Schools and Colleges thoroughly and we are confident that all students will achieve the grade their whole year efforts deserve had teaching, learning and examinations been fully completed this academic year.

We are also confident that no student will be unfairly disadvantaged in relation to their next steps, whatever you want those to be, including progression to another qualification internally or externally, Further or Higher Education or employment.
