Yesterday, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced that a number of local authorities in and around the College's region will move from Level 3 to Level 4 of the Covid-19 protection levels in order to suppress the rates of Coronavirus.

The College's campuses in Clydebank, Greenock and Paisley will remain open for the limited number of staff and students who will be undertaking essential on-campus work or learning this academic year. Under the Scottish Government's Strategic Framework, we will operate a 'restricted blended' learning model, with the majority of students continuing to learn remotely.

For those who are not currently working or learning remotely, travel to and from college is an essential reason. When using public transport, please ensure you wear a face covering and follow Transport Scotland's guidance.

People who were previously shielding will still be able to attend the College, even if they live or study in a Level 3 or 4 area. However, people who were shielding should not take public transport to or from a Level 4 area.

Through and out of the Coronavirus crisis, the College will follow government guidance and key public health measures will be in place throughout our campuses to stop the spread of the virus. Please adhere to the rules on campus and, wherever you are, remember FACTs:

  • Face coverings
  • Avoid crowded places
  • Clean your hands regularly
  • Two-metre distance
  • Self-isolate and book a test if you have symptoms​

It is vital that we stick to the rules, suppress the virus and protect our college community. The local Covid-19 protection levels are reviewed regularly. Click here, enter your postcode and find out what you can and cannot do.
