The following statement outlines how we will deliver remote learning when face-to-face learning is not possible.

It is expected that all teaching, learning and assessment for full-time study programmes will be delivered via face-to-face means in the academic year 2021-2022. Where identified, some Apprenticeship, Higher Education and Adult Learning and Community programmes may be delivered remotely.

Wherever possible, students who cannot attend face-to-face lessons due to COVID-19 related issues will access learning online. Students will be supported to ensure they have equal access to taught lessons and online resources and materials. Students will be shown how to access remote learning during the induction period, including the online platform used. However, the Windsor Forest Colleges Group (WFCG) is not a distance learning provider and cannot support full remote delivery for full-time study programmes.

During times of extraordinary circumstances, for example, in the event of a forced college closure, it may be reasonably expected that teaching, training and assessment will be conducted by purely remote means. In these circumstances, WFCG will endeavour to provide distance learning for all students impacted regardless of course or level. Students will be informed how this learning will take place in a timely manner, which allows time for staff to plan and prepare, as far as is reasonably possible, for remote delivery, which may include online platforms as well as telephone and postal support.

In the event of learners being unable to access the College sites, assessment may need to be conducted without direct supervision from the centre. We will endeavour to ensure that all assessments are conducted in accordance with the regulations and expectations of relevant awarding bodies and/or end point assessment organisations. Students will be required to submit all summative assessments by e-portfolio or other agreed e-learning means. All work submitted for formal summative assessment will be assessed using Turnitin or other appropriate methods to check and validate the authenticity of a student’s work.

Learners will be supported to ensure they have access to appropriate IT and other resources to ensure that learning can continue, and progress is made. All access arrangements will remain in place and all learners will be offered appropriate support.

Standardisation and moderation of assessed work will be conducted in line with awarding body and end point assessment organisations’ regulations, during any period of blended or distance learning.

To support the delivery of distance and blended learning, we will provide on-going training and support for staff including the provision of appropriate technologies and resources to ensure high quality teaching, learning and assessment can be delivered.
