Please be assured that the College has put robust plans in place to ensure that the vast majority of curriculum and business functions can continue during this enforced closure. Information for students about studying from home, exams and how we can support our College community through this challenging time will be sent to all staff, students and stakeholders in the coming days.

We understand and recognise that you may have concerns and ask for your support as we work together to ensure the good health of all of our staff, students, stakeholders and our local communities.

We will keep staff and students informed via email, social media and the website of any changes to the situation. Please continue to monitor North Warwickshire and South Leicestershire College email addresses, the website and social media outlets for updated communications.

In response to the current worldwide crisis of Coronavirus and in the preparation for the inevitable temporary closure of schools, colleges and other education providers, please be advised that regrettably, we are temporarily suspending evening classes until such time as the national position becomes clearer.

Whilst we have not yet received Government instruction to close the College, we are required to continually monitor and assess all curriculum provisions and as a result, the delivery of our evening provision has been reviewed and temporary suspension arrangements put in place.

Please be assured that this is a temporary measure. We will be continuing with our evening provision as soon as possible and your classes will continue as normal from that point onwards. Our tutors remain at your disposal where you can complete work from home, and should you have any questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact Sally Denning, who is our Director for Adult provision and can be contacted via the following email address: sally.denning@nwslc.ac.uk.

The College remains committed to providing a high-quality service to you, our wider student body and our community and anything we can do to support you individually during this significant period of uncertainty, we, of course, will endeavour to do.

It is with regret that due to the current global situation we have closed our Hair & Beauty Salons and will be closing the Glebegate restaurant, The Gym and all our hire facilities from this Friday 20th March. We apologise for the disruption caused by these much loved and used services.

The College takes the health and safety of its students and staff extremely seriously and will continue to follow the advice of Public Health England on this matter. We will monitor the situation closely and keep our wider College community informed should there be any developments.

Dear Students,

As you may be aware, the Government has now moved to the delay stage in their efforts to combat corona virus. The College is following Government guidelines and we are awaiting further direction in terms of what measures we are expected to take. This might include Campus and/or a whole College closure to prevent of the spread of infection.

At this moment in time, we remain open for business as usual and you must continue to come to College, attend classes and complete your coursework at this vital time of the year.

What to do if you feel ill?

Common symptoms of corona virus include:

  • a fever;
  • a dry cough; and
  • shortness of breath.

Having these symptoms does not necessarily mean that you have corona virus. However, if you have symptoms, and feel unwell, you must not attend College. You must notify the College by telephone as soon as possible. If you have recently returned from Iran, China, South Korea or Italy the current advice is to self-isolate. If you are unsure please contact the College.

If in any doubt, you should visit the 111.nhs.uk website, where you can get further medical advice via telephone. There is a tool at 111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19 for you to carry out an initial check if you think you have symptoms.

If in the event that the College is instructed to close, your tutors and managers have been preparing carefully behind the scenes to ensure, wherever possible, your studies are not disrupted. This might include setting work remotely, and asking you to complete work from home to ensure you remain on track. The College will be releasing special email addresses for students and parents to be able to communicate concerns to us and we will respond in due course.

Our students remain our top priority and whilst we appreciate this might be worrying news for you, please be assured that we will only close the College should it be absolutely essential and if instructed by Government. We will be putting special support in place for vulnerable students to ensure they have a direct line of contact with the College for relevant support.

We would like to reassure all of our students that we will take every measure to make sure that they not only pass their qualifications with the highest grades possible, but that we catch up on any missed learning in the best way possible for each individual student once this current National crisis is over.

Best wishes

Marion Plant OBE

Principal and Chief Executive Officer
