NWSLC Approach to Remote Learning


This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to students and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education if local or national restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home.

In the event of College closure, NWSLC is committed to providing continuity of education to its students through remote learning (this is where the student and/or the lecturer are not physically present in a traditional classroom environment and information is relayed through digital means as described within this document.)

This approach is related to specifically longer-term closures and would not normally be implemented in the event of short-term closures (extreme weather) or short-term student absence.

Remote learning can take place if students are self-isolating at home but are well enough to complete college work; or where students, in agreement with the College, have an extended period of absence but are able to work from home.

Remote learning does not apply when students have an unauthorised absence from College, with or without parent or carer permission. This may apply, for example, if parent or guardian decides to take their child on holiday during term-time or they decide not to send their child to College for any other reason not authorised by the College.

In addition to our approach to remote learning, the College also have a range of other policies and procedures in place to support students working from home, including the following:

  • Blended Learning Policy 2020
  • Safeguarding and Protecting Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy 2019
  • Learning Support Policy 2019
  • Student Attendance and Punctuality Policy 2019
  • Student Disciplinary Policy 2019
  • Comments, Compliments & Complaints Policy 2018
