Our students have been busy learning remotely using Microsoft Teams, which our course tutors have been using to provide the same high level of teaching to our students that they would have received if they were on campus.
We thought it may be helpful to show you, the parents and guardians, some basics about Microsoft Teams. We ran two webinars last week doing just that, whilst also including a mini webinar taster from our wellbeing expert Andrew Wright.
Each session ended with parent questions about online learning and accessing Microsoft Teams. See the most asked questions below:
We have a student induction area which will guide you through accessing our college systems https://www.plumpton.ac.uk/student-info/important-information-for-students/student-induction/
The current Ofqual consultation outcome will determine whether students will be able to sit exams later in the year or whether they will be assessed for those subjects in other ways. As soon as we know, we will let you know
It is important that students attend their online timetabled lessons, tutors will then ensure that the lesson content is varied an engaging, students will also have opportunities for independent study, peer to peer collaboration and tutorial meetings.
If you have specific course related questions, please contact your tutor directly.
Parents have been advised to liaise with student’s personal tutors or progress coach if they have questions regarding specific course related matters.
Since the original 400-acre College farm was bought back in 1919, Plumpton College has certainly seen a lot of changes.
