Guidance for students

We are currently doing all we can to ensure the campus is safe for students, including having the following safety measures in place:

  • Regular hand washing and sanitising is highly encouraged
  • Staff and students need to complete a lateral flow test twice a week
  • The use of face coverings in all communal areas is strongly recommended
  • Face coverings will remain mandatory on college transport unless you are exempt
  • Classrooms are cleaned before and after use
  • Social distancing needs to be adhered to wherever possible
  • Although you are no longer required to wear a face covering in classrooms, practical’s and workshops, you may still be asked to wear one in close contact situations during your classes – if you would feel more comfortable wearing a face covering in these circumstances then please continue to do so
  • If you have been in close contact with a positive case, please keep lateral flow testing, ideally daily, for around 5-6 days after close contact
  • If you test positive on your lateral flow test or you develop symptoms, do not come onto campus and arrange a PCR test
  • Students will be supported in attending local vaccination clinic drop-in sessions. You can find out more about walk in clinics close to you here.

Message from your Principal

My name is Marcus Clinton and I’m the Principal of Reaseheath College and University Centre Reaseheath.

It has been a challenging period recently but I have been impressed with all our staff and students in the way they have responded. Learning has continued and there have been high levels of engagement and positive feedback. That is one of the hallmarks of Reaseheath, the excellent staff that we have and the desire to give our students the best possible learning experience and the highest levels of support.

In addition to that we have our beautiful campus which is just such a lovely environment within which to study, not to mention the £80 million investment in superb specialist facilities over the last ten years.

However, what is absolutely key is that all our expertise, support and facilities lead to meaningful outcomes. That is why our mission statement is Industry Focused, Career Ready. We believe passionately in ensuring our courses have a clear line of sight to the jobs and careers which are there in the sectors we support. These remain exciting times in our sectors with ever more innovation, technology and new types of jobs appearing all the time. At Reaseheath we know the importance of ensuring students have the transferable skills and employability skills that keep our graduates current and able to adapt as their chosen industries adapt and this is exactly what employers require.

We are proud of the success of our alumni and students graduating from FE and HE and apprenticeships all have a high track record of positive outcomes and onward destinations. Employers hold the college in high regard and know they can rely on our students to be an asset to their businesses.

I and all the staff very much look forward to playing our part in helping you achieve success and positive outcomes in your chosen area this year.

Marcus Clinton
Principal & CEO
