    Forth Valley College moves to remote learning

    Written by on December 20, 2021

    Forth Valley College is moving to remote learning for the last week of term.

    They’ve also confirmed hybrid learning will be in place when classes return in January.

    Colleges Scotland announced the move, as Omicron cases spread across the country.

    Forth Valley College Principal, Dr Ken Thomson OBE, said:
    “Following formal guidance for the College sector, we took the decision to bring the majority of learning and teaching online for the last week of term (20 & 21 December) and also the first few days following the Christmas break (5-7 January 2022). We recognise that many staff and students may be feeling anxious about the current situation and we wanted to put measures in place to alleviate this.

    “There are some priority groups that have been identified for on campus activity for essential reasons, however numbers will be at an absolute minimum. We are also asking that anyone required to come on campus take regular Lateral Flow Tests and that they continue to comply with the wide range of safety measures and arrangements in place for their wellbeing.

    “We are also scenario planning for w/c Monday 10 January 2022 if further restrictions are still in place, including prioritising specific class groups and access to electronic devices. We will issue our plans for w/c Monday 10 January onwards on Thursday 6 January 2022.

    “We continue to meet regularly with Scottish Government and NHS Scotland public health officials to review all measures and arrangements in place. The safety and wellbeing of our staff, students and visitors is our top priority.”
