Health & Social Care and CACHE Childcare classes will relocate to the top floor of Blythe building. There will be disruption to some classes, but where classes do not run students can use the Learning Resource Centre and Refectory, as these will be open for students to use all day.
18/11/19: There is a National Education Union strike planned for tomorrow (Wednesday 20 November), targeted at the Secretary of State for Education about the poor level of funding that the government provides for post-16 students.
