May Update: Onsite teaching continuing successfully

As a school of design, we provide practically based courses in creative arts and, as such, are allowed by the government to deliver our courses in person again.

It should also be a safe environment to do so – the government still maintains that face to face teaching is low risk – they have been more concerned about mass student travel across the country in delaying all Universities to recommence onsite teaching. 

From April, KLC will continue to deliver its courses with a blended combination of onsite and online tuition as it successfully did throughout Autumn Term 2020.

The health and safety of our staff and students remain KLC’s top priority and, in addition to socially distanced classes and the various other safety measures we have in place, we will be following the government’s latest requirements for our students and staff to undergo twice-weekly using FREE Covid tests which can be either ordered for home delivery (7 kits at a time) or collected from all local community Testing Centres 14 kits at a (time).

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.

Health advice

Everyone should follow the same standard NHS advice to prevent the spread of colds and flu:

  • wash your hands often with soap,
  • cough or sneeze into a tissue and dispose of this into a bin as quickly as possible
Hand-Sanitiser-image   Frequent cleaning of hands is recommended. Hand sanitiser is available throughout KLC's studios, and we encourage all students, staff and visitors to use this upon entering/exiting the building and periodically throughout the day.

There is no significant evidence to suggest that wearing a surgical mask prevents the spread of the virus.

Anyone with specific concerns about their own individual health should call NHS 111.
