SRC NOTICE (Updated Wednesday 13th January 2021)

The College reopened on 4th January in line with guidance issued by the Department for the Economy. The College will remain open, with the majority of teaching delivered online until after the mid-term break (22nd February).

BTEC AND ESSENTIAL SKILLS EXAMINATIONS
In light of the ongoing Covid situation, the College has taken the decision to postpone all BTEC and Essential Skills exams scheduled to take place in January and February. In line with the Minister’s statement on 6th January, no student will be disadvantaged as a result of this decision and further information on assessment arrangements will be provided as soon as possible.

WORK BASED LEARNING – TRAINING FOR SUCCESS (TfS) AND APPRENTICESHIPS
From 14th January the College will further limit the number of TFS and apprentices required to come onsite. All TfS and Apprenticeship training programmes will move to remote learning to the maximum extent possible. It will only be in exceptional circumstances that trainees/apprentices will be required to come onsite and this is likely to be limited to assessment and examinations that cannot be delayed to later in the year. Should you be required to come onsite your Course Co-ordinator will inform you accordingly, so please maintain contact with the College and your lecturers.

PART-TIME/EVENING COURSES
Some part-time courses due to start in January/February may be postponed and those enrolled will be notified with an alternative start date. Some existing part-time courses will revert to online delivery (or be suspended until mid-February) and students will be informed as to the nature of their course delivery.

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

Community Education

Southern Regional College is a Community College and we take our role within our local communities seriously. We work with over 100 partners covering over 1,500 square miles to ensure that everyone has access to the very best quality education. Our Community Development Officers work in partnership with schools, children's centres, libraries and community and voluntary sector organisations to deliver adult education and skills to meet local needs and we engage with a wide range of other partners including Chrysalis Women's Centre, Craigavon, and our two local Councils: Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Council and Newry, Mourne and Down Council.

Our Community Development Officers, tutors and careers team are friendly, supportive and will welcome and encourage you to take that first step. We will talk about where you are now and offer guidance on courses that could help you get that job, enjoy your leisure time or continue with lifelong learning. We will help you choose the best course for you.
