Update for students on Study Programmes at Hertford Regional College

Dear Student,

As you are aware, we have now been instructed to close the College to the majority of our students until further notice.

We want to reassure you all during this challenging period that we remain committed to helping you to continue to make good progress in your studies and to complete assignment work wherever possible in line with assessment deadlines. As of Monday 23rd March, we will be providing online learning resources for you via the college Moodle elearning site in support of this.

We expect all of our learners to access their timetabled sessions remotely (including English and Maths if you taking these subjects) as directed by your tutors. Your engagement with these on line resources will be monitored to support you in successfully completing your studies. You will be required to submit your work via Moodle or email for assessment, again as directed by your tutors. If you have any concerns about how to access Moodle please contact your tutor and they will advise you further.

For the vast majority of you, all of our normal ways of working including coming to college and attending classes will be changing as of today to this online model, but a small number of you will continue to attend as we have been asked to provide access to the college for them by the government. Your parents/carers will know all about this and you may have been spoken to already by your college tutor if you are one of these learners. Everyone else should stay at home please.

We will be in regular contact with you, providing feedback on your work and discussing how you are engaging with the learning resources that you are accessing. It’s important that you continue to commit to your learning to secure a positive outcome this academic year and continue to lay good foundations to secure a successful destination for you in the years to come.

It is also important that you and your parents/carers continue to access the college website for up to date information on when we will be fully operational again and resume our teaching and learning as usual.

Please note that wider College support services will continue to be offered. Please refer to our website for contact details for the following teams:

As this is an evolving situation we would like to remind you of our official channels where we will share any updates as they occur. All updates will be available via www.hrc.ac.uk. We will also share updates via our official social media channels on Facebook (www.facebook.com/HertRegCollege), Twitter (@HertRegCollege) and Instagram (@hertregcollege).

Please continue to follow all Government guidance on how to stay healthy through these exceptionally difficult times.

Best Wishes

Hertford Regional College
