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.

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.

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.

School Partnerships

Southern Regional College currently works with 38 schools as part of the School Partnerships Programme. The programme has 2,577 pupils from the four Area Learning Communities of Armagh, Banbridge, Craigavon and Newry. Area Learning Communities provide a real opportunity to develop the Entitlement Framework, individually and collectively, for delivery of education on an area basis. Schools have a shared responsibility for the delivery of the Entitlement Framework for all of the young people in an area.

A growing number of schools are now engaged with SRC in innovative and creative approaches to collaborative working. There are currently four ALCs established across the Southern Education and Library Board area within which schools and SRC are working to increase the range of courses for pupils in the local area.

As part of the School Partnership Programme, pupils from local schools attend Southern Regional College to study a range of vocational and academic programmes from Countryside and Environment, Childcare, Computing, Engineering, Media, Retail, Performing Arts and Travel and Tourism. These programmes range from Occupational Studies to BTECs and A Levels.
