Frequently Asked Questions

How do I access Lateral Flow Tests

The Welsh Government and Public Health Wales have made lateral flow devices (LFDs) available for college learners and staff.

These testing packs can be collected from main reception at each campus.

The Welsh Government are asking learners and staff to test twice-weekly (two to three days apart) to ensure that we reduce the risk of transmission wherever possible.

To view the latest requirements and rules for self isolation (such as who needs to, when, length of time) , we recommend you follow the latest advice from Welsh Government Self Isolation

What happens if the college has a positive case for COVID- 19?

When a confirmed case of COVID-19 is identified as attending college (staff or learner) contact will be made with the case (or parent) to assess whether they attended the college during their infectious period and whether further tracing of contacts in the college is needed.

If any staff member or learner within the college is a contact of the case, they will be required to self-isolate for 10 days and contacted by your local Test, Trace, Protect (TTP) team or Education Department.

If a staff member or learner from the college is not a contact of the case, they will not be required to self-isolate.
