SEPTEMBER 8TH - UPDATE ON PLANNED CAERPHILLY BOROUGH LOCKDOWN
Following clarification from Welsh Government, all Coleg y Cymoedd staff and learners can travel into and out of Caerphilly Borough in order to attend college, as long as they do not have symptoms of Covid-19 and have not been asked to self-isolate.
This means that we will still be operating all campuses as per our new normal - strictly following all the social distancing protocols, hand hygiene, face coverings in communal areas, and other measures dependent on risk assessments.
Caerphilly council has confirmed that transport will still be operating in and out of the county.
The lockdown restrictions will be reviewed on 24 September and weekly thereafter.
For learners who are undertaking induction this week, please ensure you visit our Getting Ready for College page before you attend induction
August 27th - Statement on Face Coverings at Coleg y Cymoedd
Following the recent Welsh Government announcement and associated media coverage, we have decided at Coleg y Cymoedd to introduce the mandatory use of face coverings in all communal areas of the college campuses for staff and learners.
The college will be providing two washable face coverings for all learners at their inductions next week, together with instructions of how to safely use them.
There will of course be some exceptions where this type of face covering is not suitable and these might relate to personal circumstances / health of some learners – alternatives can be discussed on an individual basis. [read more]
