Following the government announcements regarding the January vocational examinations, the College has decided that we will be running the examinations as originally planned. The measures the College has implemented to ensure the safety of staff and students will of course remain in place throughout the exams. The following link details these measures https://www.derby-college.ac.uk/student-support/studying-at-derby-college
In the event that a student decides they cannot travel safely or cannot attend their examination for any other reason the awarding bodies have arranged with the department for education contingency plans to ensure no students are disadvantaged. We do not know the specific details of these plans as yet, however, where absence occurs we will work closely with the awarding bodies to ensure that none of our students lose out.
College is open to support students requesting support, in line with Government guidance. BTEC exams are optional and down to individual choice. Our colleges continue to operate to covid safety guidelines and all those on our sites are asked to comply with these. If you have any further queries regarding your January examinations please contact the college using one of the various methods detailed https://www.derby-college.ac.uk/contact-us
