COVID-19 Updates

Last updated:  23/07/21

The First Minister continues to gradually relieve restrictions across Scotland. While we remain optimistic for an eventual return to ‘normality’, the government’s current strategy continues to promote social distancing and mask-wearing, to minimise the spread of the Coronavirus. The health and well-being of our staff and students remain to be at the top of College priorities.

Key updates for students, staff & visitors:

  • To that end, we can confirm that teaching will remain online for the remainder of the academic year (20/21). Further updates will be given in regards to the new academic year teaching plans (21/22). Current students are reminded to visit Moodle for the latest updates regarding learning, teaching and assessment processes during this time. Should any questions arise, students should contact their academic advisors in the first instance.
  • Student Welfare Officers are on hand for additional support. Further information can be found here.
  • College staff members have returned to the building, and are adhering to Scottish government guidance.
  • The College will remain closed to visitors at this stage.

We will continue to communicate on a regular basis to provide guidance and advice and to highlight any changes in our approach.

We would like to emphasise that the College will continue to operate in line with public health, UK and Scottish Government guidance. We encourage all students, staff, and surrounding community members to practice basic hygiene precautions and follow the advice given across various UK health care organisations- HPS COVID-19 website and NHS Inform.
