Bournemouth & Poole College is offering Dorset residents, aged 19 and above, the opportunity to learn a new skill and gain qualification during the Government-enforced lockdown by completing one of their free online courses.
Earlier this month the five-star Berkeley Hotel in London was the venue for this year’s Royal Academy of Culinary Arts Specialised Chef’s graduation, and what an evening it was.
In response to the Government enforced lockdown, Bournemouth & Poole College remains ‘open’ thanks to investment in software which allows students to be taught virtually online.
Diane Grannell, Principal of Bournemouth & Poole College, explained: “At this difficult time, the education and safety of our students is paramount and we remain dedicated to their development, despite the current global health crisis. Even in these unprecedented times, we had a contingency plan in place for our students which meant that within a matter of days we were teaching online.”
