Coventry College prepares for ‘full re-opening’ with social distancing measures

COVENTRY College says it is ramping up preparations for a full re-opening in September despite the coronavirus crisis.

The city’s education provider – which has around 8,000 students – says it can accommodate its usual number of students and still adhere to social distancing guidelines.

It adds it has had more than a thousand expressions of interest via its online open event website – in the absence of being able to host a physical open day.

Gemma Knott, Assistant Principal for Business Growth at Coventry College, said: “We have been overwhelmed by the level of interest we have received from our online open event – which has been averaging 50 enquiries a day after receiving 800 registrations during the first few days of the launch – so we’d urge students thinking of studying with us to start the enrolment process with us sooner rather than later.

“The past few months have been challenging for everybody – and has seen some inspirational efforts by our teachers and students in continuing their studies from home, while also helping out in the local community.

“College staff have also been working hard behind the scenes to ensure that students can begin their studies in September as they usually would in a safe environment.

“More than ever though, all of the staff at Coventry College are looking forward to welcoming our new and existing students back so we can continue to help shape the future of this city’s next generation of talent.”
