Our learners are likely to benefit enormously from returning to college; seeing their friends, peers and teaching staff again as well as feeling a sense of community and belonging.

We have put together a recovery curriculum strategy to support our learners on their return. We have also identified a number of books related to COVID, mental health and grief which are appropriate for our learners. More information can be found in the following document:
