Coronavirus Update

Exams and Assessment updates – 24 April 2020 

We know that many students will be worried about how they will achieve their qualifications this year.  The government are continuing to provide regular updates about this. We are monitoring these publications closely and putting processes into place to ensure our students are not disadvantaged.

GCSE exams will not take place this summer, however qualifications will be awarded using marks provided by the college based on work completed, together with other data. Please don’t ask your teachers about these grades because we are not allowed to tell you.

Similar processes are expected to apply for vocational and technical qualifications, for example BTEC and City & Guilds qualifications. We are still waiting for information about how and when this will happen.

We are sending regular updates to students, parents and employers when information is available.

All our students should continue to attend online sessions and complete the work set by their teachers, tutors or assessors whenever possible.  Support services are available for any student needing advice and help at this time. Students should speak to their tutor or assessor via Teams or email in the first instance, or look for key email addresses on our website and in the Virtual Hub.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update – 17 March 

In light of these unprecedented times and to keep our students, staff and visitors safe, please note our campuses will be closed to most staff, all students and visitors from 4:30pm on Wednesday 18 March until further notice.

All students in supported learning will be supported with their studies at home from Wednesday 18 March and should not attend college.

Students will be continuing their studies through online learning and will do until further notice. 

Please note that most staff are working online from home and our business is running as normal, albeit not from college premises.

As of 17 March, all restaurant bookings, all external room bookings and our beauty salon appointments have been cancelled. We apologise for the inconvenience and look forward to welcoming you back soon. In order to comply with social distancing, and to support in the ‘delay’ phase, we have also made the difficult decision to close our sports centre and gym to members.

For students who have applied to college or who are considering applying for courses starting in September, we are still taking applications and you can apply in the normal way. We will support you through this time to find your place. Please apply via the website as normal and we will be in touch with you as we have more information. Contact our admissions team at cadmissions@camre.ac.uk 

Our website will be updated regularly to keep you informed. Please also follow our social media channels for any updates.

Further details of how to contact people whilst the campuses are closed will be updated and available on our Contact Us page, click here > 

We are sorry for the inconvenience and hope that you all stay safe and well. We look forward to seeing you all again.
