Advice for Students

During the current coronavirus pandemic, we will provide updated advice and guidance for students on this page.

Following the announcement by the Prime Minister that Colleges should close on 5 January 2021, we will close to most students except for those considered vulnerable and the children of key workers from tomorrow. All other face to face provision will be stopped – this includes evening classes and Employability provision through EKC IntoWork.

We will continue to deliver our provision through on-line teaching. Please ensure that you login to EKC Online and use that to find your on-line provision. If you are unsure of how to access on-line learning, we have created this short video that will give you guidance on how to log-in and find your courses.  

All of the Group’s Nursery Provision will continue to remain open as normal.

Special Note – External Examinations:

EKC Group welcomes the statement by the Government on 5 January 2021 regarding external examinations that have already been planned for January. We believe that we are able to offer these examinations safely and the overwhelming feedback from students is that they would like the opportunity to sit their examinations.

Therefore, we will continue to offer the examinations as planned. It will be an individual students choice as to whether they wish to sit the examination. For those who choose not to sit the examination(s), we will do everything to ensure that future opportunities for sitting the examination are made available. Alternatively, the Government may offer different forms of assessment. At this time we do not know what any alternatives will be but will communicate them as soon as we know.

Any questions should be directed to your local College using the details below in the first instance.
