COVID-19 guidance for current students
Teaching & Learning:
Happy New Year to all our students and staff!
Mont Rose College will be offering hybrid teaching from January 2022. The safety of staff and students is our main priority, and we will be conducting risk assessments of our campuses so you can return to the COVID-secure campus. But in case the government guidelines change, we will inform and update you accordingly. Our priority is your health and safety; we review our risk assessment monthly to keep the campus COVID secure.
As all teaching and assessment will be conducted through hybrid learning from January 2022, all students must wear face-covering for health & safety reasons. The students have to follow the COVID code of conduct and college rules to move around the campus.
Your learning is our priority, and we understand how important it is for you to use practical facilities like the library and computer laboratory.
If we decide to move to online teaching due to any change in the external environment, all the online sessions conducted through Google Meet or MS Teams will be recorded and remain on Moodle. In the case of university courses, all the lectures happening through the medium of Collaborate are also recorded and remain on Blackboard. These recordings are helpful for those students who are unable to attend the sessions so they can go through the recorded lectures to keep with the pace of their studies.

What are safety measures being put in place to protect students and staff on campus?

Support for students with special needs:
Our support for students with special needs will continue as usual.
We strongly recommend that the students contact the College Welfare department if they need any help and advice concerning their special needs provision via email or phone.
A meeting with the Student Welfare Officers will ensure that the concerned student’s needs are identified and support is arranged, so he/she will be able to access and complete the studies successfully.

Laptop Lending Scheme:
We will continue lending laptops to our students who are facing personal challenges and digital poverty. This means not having access to a laptop (as classes have moved online). This may be due to the need to share a laptop with other family members. With this in mind, Mont Rose College has introduced a Laptop Loan Scheme to reduce some of the personal and financial pressures students may be facing.
There will be no cost for this Loan; however, you may be responsible for any costs if the laptop is damaged.
Please contact the Welfare Co-Ordinator if you would like more information or to sign up for this scheme:
