Harrogate College is open and we’re following government COVID-19 advice

Our college campus continues to remain open following government COVID-19 advice and restrictions. This means our students can continue their education, building upon their knowledge and skills for the future.

We have procedures in place that mean we’ve been open continuously since the summer. This includes additional hand sanitiser stations throughout our campuses, so you can keep your hands clean. In every classroom, there are also cleaning packs to wipe down shared equipment before and after use. 

We’re asking everyone to wear a face covering (unless they’re unable to) and to keep 2 metres apart. We’re encouraging everyone to be kind and supportive to each other too. 

To keep us all safe, we have a successful zone and ‘bubble’ system. The college has been divided into different areas (zones) with students allocated to an entrance and a zone where they remain with their group (bubble). When positive COVID-19 cases have been identified, these ‘bubbles’ are closed for 14 days and the members stay at home. Due to the college’s blended learning model, students can continue to learn online. Thanks to everyone’s support, this system has been a real success 

We can all help to reduce the COVID-19 infection rate by:

  • Limiting the number of people from outside our households we come into contact with
  • Making space and staying 2m from people outside our households or support bubble
  • Washing hands regularly and for 20 seconds
  • Covering faces in enclosed spaces
  • Isolating when advised to
covid-19 advice

Please self-isolate if:

·         You’ve had a test and are waiting to hear your result.

·         Someone you live with has symptoms or a positive result.

If your result is positive and confirms you have Covid-19, please continue self-isolating for at least 10 days. Let your tutor know straight away and stay at home to keep our communities safe. Do not come to college, unless you have a negative test result. Please get the rest and support you need to recover.  

Our NHS services are extremely busy at this time and it’s important that anyone who experiences any of the main symptoms of COVID-19 stays at home. These symptoms include a new, continuous cough, high temperature, loss or change to your sense of taste or smell.
