When you study at Lambeth College, you will be learning in an environment committed to providing students with the best experience possible with all round support from experienced tutors and modern industry standard facilities.
Our exceptional facilities include; an artist’s garden overlooking Clapham Common, modern Learning Resource facilities, a Careers Advice service, a Matrix accredited advice and guidance service, supportive tutors and a range of additional enrichment activities.
The outstanding level of support we offer to our leaners is second to none. Our recent Ofsted inspection states that 'Staff have created a college environment that is welcoming and inclusive and where diversity is valued and celebrated; students’ behaviour is good and they are respectful of their peers and teachers.'
During lockdown, all students (except vulnerable students, those with an EHCP, or children of key-workers) will learn remotely. Learning will consist of a mixture of live delivery with teachers and work set for students to complete, either independently or as part of a small group of students.
The normal timetable will continue to be followed, with lessons starting with live delivery.
The majority of learning will be delivered by teachers using Microsoft Teams, with a minority of staff using Google Classroom. Our VLE, Moodle, will also be used to complement these platforms. Teachers will inform students how their learning will be delivered.
Students will need to download the Microsoft Teams app onto their own device: guidance on how to do this can be found here: Getting started with MS Teams.
It is important that all students continue to attend their normal timetabled lessons and are familiar with our Digital Code of Conduct
Assessment arrangements will vary across different curriculum areas and will be communicated by teachers. Specific arrangements have been made for students studying on courses which require specialist equipment in order for learning to continue.
If students are struggling to access online lessons due to lack of device or WiFi, or a lack of study space, they should contact their LDC or programme leader who will be able to provide support.
ALS support continues to be available for students with a specific learning need and will be delivered remotely.
16-19 Tuition Fund
During the pandemic we are providing additional support, in the form of small group tuition, for 16 to 19-year-old students in English, maths, and other courses where learning has been impacted.
This has been made possible through the 16-19 Tuition Fund and this is being used to mitigate the disruption of learning arising from coronavirus (COVID-19). The groups will be no more than 5 students.
