Below are a few frequently asked questions.

Do I need to wear a mask or keep socially distanced while at College?
At the moment, we would please request that everyone wears a face covering or appropriate mask when walking around the College, as well as keep a safe distance from others. This is to stop any potential spread of Covid-19 and ensure the safety of our students, our staff, and other visitors. You will not be expected to wear a mask when seated or in classes. Please be respectful of others.
