As I am sure you are aware, on 10th May 2020, the government gave further guidance regarding the reopening of educational settings for a minority of students from 1st June 2020, in addition to children of key workers and those who are vulnerable.
See link The UK Government’s COVID-19 recovery strategy (FYI - FE Colleges are mentioned on page 30 Step Two of the Government strategy)
In response to this recent government guidance, the management within DCG are now working with key support teams (including Health and Safety/Estates and Facilities etc) in order to undertake a full risk assessment and identify detailed plans which reflect government advice to ensure we can accommodate more students safely.
As I am sure you can appreciate, we need to get this right and as soon as we have our plans in place we will communicate these to you. I am sure you appreciate that our priority is to keep students, staff and parents/carers safe.
I hope you and your families are well.
