Jacqueline Page will be on hand to answer any questions that people have following the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation’s (Ofqual) recent announcement on how GCSE and A-level grades will be awarded this year after the cancellation of exams due to the coronavirus outbreak.

This is the first of a series of social media engagements that are planned with various staff over the coming weeks, covering a number of education areas and topics.

“Although our Student Support and Wellbeing Teams are operating as usual at this time, we wanted to provide parents and students with the opportunity to interact with us in a whole new way, which will enable us to reach as many people as possible that may be struggling with the latest Ofqual announcement,” explained Jacqueline Page. “We may be in unprecedented times, but we remain committed to our students’ education and providing them with the latest information and advice on how to best proceed to limit the interruption caused by the current global heath crisis.”

In response to the government enforced lockdown, the college closed its sites to students on 18 March and began its virtual teaching on 23 March. All students are now studying remotely and taking part in virtual lessons given by staff. Applications for all courses and apprenticeships remain unaffected and can be made online through the website.
