Advice for Parents and Carers

The recent Government announcement means we will be closing our Colleges from 5pm Friday 20 March. However, following Government guidance we will be keeping the Colleges open for certain groups of students.

Please read this guidance carefully, and get in touch with us if you require any clarification:

  • If your young person can remain safely at home, then we would ask that they do. The Government has been clear that if students can remain at home safely, then they should do so;
  • If you are a key worker, then we are here to support you during this period. Dover Technical College, Broadstairs College, Folkestone College and Sheppey College have now closed to staff and students. If you have any queries about these closures, or if you are the child of a key worker or you are a vulnerable student and would still like to access College, you can contact your respective College via the email address or phone numbers below. If you need your young person to attend a College as you are a key worker or they are a vulnerable student, we will ensure they are able to do so. Please just make contact with your local College using the details below, and we will enable this;
  • If your young person is considered a vulnerable student, has an EHCP, or if you believe that our College is a safer environment then we will remain open to them and staff will be here to assist them.

This is an unprecedented situation, so we would be grateful for your patience. We will be working hard to ensure that your child or young persons learning is disrupted as little as possible during this period. We will continue to issues updates through this page, and via our social media feeds so please check here regularly.
