COLLEGE NOTICE (Updated 12/04/21)

Resumption of delivery on College campuses continues to be limited to areas where skills training and assessment needs to take place on site. Unlike schools, Colleges of Further Education have not resumed delivery in full. The College is operating in line with the NI Executive’s Roadmap to Recovery and must wait on the Executive’s decision to trigger the next stage on the roadmap before resuming delivery.

The NI Executive is scheduled to review this later this week and should the decision be taken to trigger Stage 2 of the Roadmap to Recovery, the College will inform students accordingly. Until this takes place, students should continue to follow the direction provided by their course tutors and continue to monitor all communications via email, website and social media.

STUDENT SUPPORT

Learning Resource Centres are open for students unable to access online lessons from home. Student services and limited canteen facilities are also available. Student queries should be directed to Course Co-ordinators. General queries should be emailed to info@src.ac.uk

The College’s tiling courses are particularly well-regarded and students have notched up considerable achievements, including competing in the World Skills UK national finals, under the enthusiastic guidance of Paul Doran, Lecturer at the College, who is also the WorldSkills UK Training Manager for Wall and Floor Tiling. 
 
“TTA is delighted to welcome SRC as a TTA Centre of Excellence,” says David Rowley, Chairman of the TTA Training Committee. “The College provides a great resource for trainee and apprentice tillers looking for training. I would like to congratulate the College, and I’m sure the accolade of being a TTA Centre of Excellence will strengthen their offer to the community, enabling students in Northern Ireland to access the most suitable training available.”
 
Speaking on the award, Brian Doran, Principal & Chief Executive of Southern Regional College said: “Southern Regional College is delighted to be awarded TTA Centre of Excellence status. As the largest provider of construction apprenticeships in the local area, it is critical to meet labour market demand and provide opportunities for young people to progress into the range of jobs available in the tiling industry. This award recognises the high quality of training in floor and wall tiling and we look forward to our continued association with the Association”.
