COVID testing and returning to college in 2021

Updated 9th March 2021

The College are working hard to help students return to College Centre’s and complete their assessments.

Getting tested means it will help prevent the spread of coronavirus in our community and we will be able to support students to self-isolate if necessary. Testing is just part of the preventative measures against coronavirus, so please continue to follow the Hands, Face, Space rules.

Who should get tested?

Staff and students coming into centre. This will help reduce the risk of onward transmission. Failure to participate in testing may prevent you from proceeding with your assessment.

Please be aware that students will be temperature tested and required to have proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours of entry to the college centres.

If you do not have any symptoms of coronavirus, free tests are available at local lateral flow testing centres, with results available 30 minutes after taking the test. Find your nearest lateral flow testing centre If you do have symptoms of COVID-19 or are self-isolating, you must get tested and follow government advice.

For the immediate period the College will continue to test staff when in centre. 

If you are feeling anxious about getting a test or have any questions please email covidtesting@caw.ac.uk .

We are encouraging you to use private modes of travel where possible and avoid car sharing outside your household.  If you need to use public transport, then please follow all the relevant rules around distancing and face coverings.
