In line with government guidance regarding social distancing all of the Lancashire colleges’ campuses are currently closed to the general public.  All of the Lancashire colleges are continuing to provide teaching and other support to students through alternative means including virtual classes, on-line learning and telephone calls with support staff.  A number of college campuses remain open for those limited groups of young people defined as ‘vulnerable’ by the government. 

Following the updated guidance released by the government regarding the opening of college campuses to wider groups of     learners, individual colleges are taking cognisance of both national and local guidance in making their decisions, underpinned by robust risk assessment.  Each college is and will continue to communicate directly with their learners, apprentices, employers and parents as the situation evolves.
