Important Announcement: Onsite teaching delayed until April
The health and safety of our staff and students remain KLC’s top priority and we will be following the government’s guidance to higher education institutes that onsite teaching should be delayed until April subject to a review announcement by the end of the Easter holidays with students being given one week's notice of their return date.
However, the government has made it clear that providers should not ask students to return if their course can reasonably be continued online for the moment. This means that the remainder of this Spring term will continue to be delivered online. With our online expertise, we are in the fortunate position that we can seamlessly switch between onsite and online delivery as circumstances dictate, so we will still be able to ensure that students continue to receive fully supported high-quality education in the first weeks of the new term.
Once the government advises onsite teaching can resume, KLC will continue to deliver its courses with a blended combination of onsite and online tuition as it successfully did throughout Autumn Term 2020.
We continue to recommend that our students register with local health services and that should they feel unwell seek medical advice in the first instance by calling NHS111, particularly if they are experiencing respiratory symptoms such as a [persistent] cough, fever or loss of taste/smell.
