1,000s back at college campuses with Covid safety measures in place


Students and staff are returning to The Bedford College Group campuses across Beds and Northants today for the start of the 2020/21 academic year.

At Cauldwell Street in Bedford, and Kempston’s motor vehicle and gas & plumbing centres, new students and those returning from the 2019/20 year, will find special systems and measures in place to keep them safe. 

At the rural setting of Shuttleworth near Biggleswade, where outdoor and land-based learning courses are proving more popular than ever, new safety measures will also be practised.

At the modern Northamptonshire campuses of Tresham College at Corby and Kettering, the same rules will apply and at the refurbished Wellingborough town centre campus, students will be able to see for the first time the £10m transformation of the buildings.

Learning Centres at Bedford, Kettering and now Corby are open for adult learners now.All campuses will use the sanitising fog cleaning system on an on-going basis.
