NTC Covid-19 update

NTC Covid-19 update

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Senior Leadership Team has been actively managing the situation to ensure, as much as possible, the safety of everyone associated with NTC. We have carried out risk assessments, introduced new signage and prepared contingency plans based on the latest advice from the UK government, Public Health England, and other appropriate regulatory bodies.

The College will continue to closely monitor the situation and will take all appropriate and necessary steps, as required by official advice, to keep you as safe as possible. The safety of everyone at a COVID-19 secure NTC is a top priority. The College has an Outbreak Control Plan and this will be followed when necessary. This states how the College will support those who have received a positive Covid-19 test result; what actions will be taken on campus and how we will inform those who have been in contact with the person.

9 April 2021 update

Although the government has announced the roadmap out of lockdown, teaching at all levels will continue online, as publicised, and we are here to support you in your studies. We want to care well for all our students so don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions or concerns – the best way to contact us is still via email as the vast majority of faculty and staff are working from home.

The College campus remains closed to the public and is only open to students in limited circumstances. There is a booking system on Moodle for collecting or returning books and/or if you need to book a study space in one of the classrooms on campus. As home testing kits are now available to all adults in England, we strongly recommend that anyone coming to campus has a negative test before they come. Tests can be ordered online via https//www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests . Also there are lots of places where you can pick up a home test kit – use your postcode to find your nearest location https://maps.test-and-trace.nhs.uk/  If you are on campus, you will need to register your attendance via a QR code, wear a mask, maintain social distancing and use the hand sanitisers available at all entry and exit points.

Current students will receive updates from the Dean as we adapt to the changing government guidance during this pandemic. Please look out for any emails as we continue to advise and support you in your studies.
