Business as usual at Northern College: COVID-19 Tier 3 update

As you will be aware, the new COVID-19 tier 3 restrictions are coming into place this weekend across Sheffield City Region, from 00.01 on Saturday 24 October 2020. Northern College is in regular contact with its students to support them through this transition, and the college remains open with business as usual.

Government guidelines under tier 3 mean that further education should continue. This aligns with Northern College’s commitment to continue to support its students to achieve and progress.

We are a COVID-secure campus, and remain COVID-secure under tier 3 restrictions. This means that we comply with all government guidance on managing the risks of COVID-19. This includes hand sanitiser stations on arrival, social distancing measures and clearly-signed one-way systems.

We also have a full range of carefully planned methods in place to adapt and manage our teaching and learning so that all new and prospective students can continue their studies. This includes being prepared to deliver blended learning (mixture of online and face-to-face teaching) for all of our courses.

We will continue to closely monitor the government guidelines. Should any changes need to be made, we will keep you as informed as possible through our website and social media channels.
