In line with the current Government Guidance The Cornwall College Group is currently undertaking careful planning in the return of staff and students to our campuses.

We will continue to follow government advice closely in relation to the re-opening of the College and would like to reassure all students, parents/carers and staff that when this happens our Senior Leadership Team will ensure:

  • That staff and students will return as part of a gradual, clear and well-planned return based on the need to continue effective teaching, learning and assessment for all students.
  • Students return will be prioritised according to those who must complete assessments in order to complete their qualification.
  • They have the utmost consideration for the health and safety of all students and staff whilst on our campuses.
  • For those learners we are currently supporting to attend college, we will continue to do so where needed,

Our priority has and will always be the safety of our college community.
