Covid-19 Response

First of all, we would like to thank our staff, and students, for their continued patience, and understanding, as we adapt to the changes brought about by the current pandemic. The City College prides itself on being a community and, as such, have endeavoured to continue keeping in touch with, teaching, and supporting, our students remotely. We are doing this via Microsoft Teams, SharePoint, email and Showbie. The office and team are available from 10-6 pm Monday-Friday with out of office responses to urgent requests for information, offering lessons and support as normal.

The City College has an Emergency Response Team in place to deal with unprecedented situations, such as the current pandemic, which results in the College having to be closed for any period of time. The response team aims to monitor the situation and act on government guidelines and will make decisions about when the College should close, for the safety and security of its student body, and staff. It will also plan for how, and when, to re-open, in a way which ensures the safety, and security, of all members of the TCC & CCA community.

The City College Emergency Response Team also puts in place the necessary support required while remote learning is in place: assessing, and implementing, the systems used, offering training, and support, for online working, ensuring security and making sure that communication is easy to access.

The City College Emergency Response Team consists of:
Ms Tasneem Riaz (Managing Director)
Ms Farrah Riaz (Director)
Mr Naweed Riaz (Head of Business)
Ms Mandy Haywood (Head of DET/HMT/TTM)
Mr Paul Johnson (Programme Leader of Acupuncture)
Ms Susan Riaz (Student Welfare)
Mr Lee Eleftheriou (IT support)
