All Kirklees College centres will remain open throughout the new national lockdown restrictions introduced on Thursday 5 November.
In order to keep the Kirklees College community safe, the government guidelines have been implemented and students are being asked to maintain a 1-metre distance in classrooms and 2-metre distance, follow the signposted routes, sanitise regularly, attend college for timetabled classes only and wear face coverings in communal areas and when using public transport.
The college has also completed COVID-Secure risk assessments for all sites, increased cleaning and made adaptions where necessary. New classrooms rules have also been introduced to provide students with clear guidance when they attend college, including sitting in their allocated seat within the seating plan, wiping desks and equipment and avoiding face to face contact with their peers.
Kirklees College is committed to the ongoing education and support of its students throughout the COVID-19 crisis and will continue to work hard to ensure the safety of the college community.
