Our response to Covid-19
Latest update: 14 April 2022
From Monday 21 March (and in line with Scottish Government guidance) we will be returning to normal on-campus teaching conditions. Some classes may still be delivered remotely where it’s appropriate and you should confirm with your lecturer if your class is on campus.
All social distancing restrictions and room capacity restrictions will be removed throughout our campuses.
From Tuesday 19 April the wearing of face coverings in all areas of the College will be strongly recommended but we will not be able to mandate their routine use. However, if a risk assessment of a specific practice indicates that a face covering is required then we will continue to enforce this, for example in hairdressing, beauty therapy, construction, or engineering.
In some areas of the college one-way systems may be maintained where they effectively reduce congestion, and these will be kept under review. Plus, occupancy levels in some lifts may also be limited to ensure users feel safe to use them.
The College will continue to monitor CO2 levels throughout our campuses and virus prevalence data in our students and staff. If these indicators highlight any concerns, we will not hesitate to reintroduce targeted mitigations.
The health and welfare of our students is our greatest priority and if you are worried in any way about returning to campus please contact your Lecturer or Student Advice for guidance and support.
Our Time to Talk helpline is available for all students, Mon-Fri 1pm to 4pm and is staffed by our counselling team. If you need any help or support with your health and wellbeing, just call 0141 272 3786 and quote your 8-digit student reference.
- We would encourage all students to get vaccinated as soon as they are able to do so.
- The College will continue with a regime of increased cleaning and hygiene measures with the regular use of hand sanitisers encouraged in all areas
- Classrooms and workshops should be well ventilated by opening windows and doors to encourage the circulation of fresh air
