College update

Thank you to all students, parents, carers and employers who have supported the re-opening of the College. It is fantastic to have students back in the building and working hard on their qualifications.

Your tutors will be working through the information from the different Awarding Organisations and providing you with updates and information as to what you need to do next to complete your qualification. This includes all aspects of your programme, so attendance is crucial.

As the Easter break approaches, the College will remain open for some students to continue their assessments. Your tutor will tell you if you need to attend.

For those not required in, the summer term is going to be busy, so rest, recharge and enjoy the break.

Easter - lateral flow testing

Staff and students are now being encouraged to take part in home testing, and have been provided with lateral flow test kits to use at home.

Please note, if you are taking part in testing (and we really hope that you are), you must continue to test twice per week (and report the result online) over the Easter holidays, regardless of whether you are on campus. Please ensure you have enough tests to last over the Easter holiday period. Tests can be collected from the reception areas at North Street and South Bank 1, and from the coffee shops at North Street and South Bank 2.

If you will be returning to College for the first time after Easter, you will be given the opportunity to get tested on campus, if you are comfortable with the testing process, you will be provided with a home test kit. Further information can be found here: Lateral Flow Testing

COVID-19 safety measures

Several measures have been introduced to ensure we keep the College community safe. Please note only staff, students who have been invited in, and those with pre-arranged appointments are allowed on campus. 

A video has been produced for staff and students explaining what measures are in place on campus, it can be viewed below.

Reporting a positive test

In the unfortunate event that a member of staff or student tests positive please call 0113 222 6073 or email CV19@lcb.ac.uk so that test and trace can be carried out.

We have produced a guide explaining the various COVID-19 scenarios and when self-isolation may be required, you can download it here.
