Due to continuing industrial dispute between the teaching union, EIS/FELA, and the Employers’ Association, many members of teaching staff will be on strike on Tuesday 5th February 2019 and, potentially, on two further dates in March 2019.
In these circumstances, the College regrets that it will not be able to deliver the majority of timetabled classes, including evening classes, scheduled for that date and for the subsequent days of strike action.
This will not affect students’ support funding, childcare or the status of ESOL students.
All College campus buildings will remain open for students who wish to use support services and/or the Flexible Learning facilities.
The College deeply regrets these circumstances and will continue to do all it can to minimise any detrimental impact on our students, stakeholders and our community.
The College will produce an update if the next scheduled day of strike action takes place.
