Remote and blended learning

If you are enrolled on a course and have been told to self-isolate, please tell us as soon as possible. We can arrange another way for you to continue learning.

Where possible, your tutor will arrange for you to either:

  • join your classes through an online platform such as MS Teams or Zoom
  • keep in contact by email and telephone to help you to continue until you are able to return to the classroom

In some classes, where assessment needs direct observation, supervision, or you need to use centre resources, we may reschedule a session. If it is more appropriate, we will invite you to join our next available course.

Our online learning handbook sets out what you can expect from us and what we expect from you when learning online. We will send you a copy, along with joining details for your course.

Should guidelines and COVID-19 restrictions change, we may move more of our offer online. We will always tell you of this as soon as we can, providing details of how you can join our online classes.

Covid secure procedures

Bracknell Open Learning Centre has policies and procedures in place to keep staff and visitors as safe as possible. We have enhanced cleaning routines in place and, for visitor comfort, we continue to control the number of people in the centre.

We continue to encourage the:

  • use of anti-bacterial gel on entering the building and classrooms
  • wearing of a facemask whilst entering and moving around the building is encouraged

If you have a positive result from a COVID-19 test, or become unwell at the centre, please tell us immediately.

Access to learning

To maintain access to learning, we will offer support to learners who may struggle to access online learning. This may be because of a lack of suitable equipment, internet connection or confidence with IT.

We also work with partners at the council and within the community to provide bespoke support for community groups wishing to access adult learning courses.

Please contact us for more information.
