In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, there may be a requirement to close the college at short notice. BDC will not take this decision lightly and will ensure that full consultation with relevant external stakeholders, including Public Health England is taken to agree that full college closure is the best course of action.

In order to not impede student learning or progress, BDC needs to provide remote learning opportunities for  all cohorts and implement suitable arrangements that support distance and blended learning opportunities.  This document sets out clear guidance to staff that will help organise and arrange an online learning framework that will allow and support remote learning opportunities.

In the event of a college closure, all BDC staff will be expected to continue working from home remotely to provide both online learning resources and to provide guidance and feedback to learners to support continued learning.

Educators will be responsible for managing and monitoring learning via their Google Classroom and Etracker.

This will be monitored by CTL’s/CM’s and Heads of Department and they will ensure that:

· All  remote learning is planned and  facilitated 

· All remote learning is monitored and managed via Google Classroom

· Support & feedback is clearly provided via Google classroom
