Update from the Principal: August 2020

The days of the week for your normal weekly timetable will be sent out to you on Wednesday 2nd September and clearly set out your college days and your virtual learning day. This is the schedule you will follow throughout the year starting in the week commencing 14th September and will enable you plenty of time to book bus tickets between Wednesday 2nd September and Saturday 5th September. 

Your timetable setting out specific lessons on these days will be given to you during your induction. 

As I have said throughout recent months, our main priority in bringing students back into Plumpton is to ensure your safety and that your learning experience is as rich, valuable and enjoyable as possible.  Your timetabled days in college will focus on your practical lessons, to enable you to develop the necessary skills required for your qualification and your progression into employment. Your college days will also include some theory lessons as well as time with your Personal Tutor or Progress Coach and our Additional Learning Support teams where necessary. Your theory lessons will also be taught on your timetabled virtual learning day(s) and you will be given an induction to how these will work during your induction week.

Towards the end of last academic year, the College volunteered to be part of a national Ofsted review, looking at the effectiveness of online learning across the country, including at Plumpton, since lockdown.  We have learnt a lot as a result of that and invested in Microsoft Teams as a new online learning platform. This will mean that when you are in the virtual lessons on your timetable, these will be taught live and therefore be an interactive and engaging learning experience, and one you will be required to attend in the same way as you would a physical classroom lesson in college.

See the Student Induction Page to learn more on the software used for online learning.
