Scarborough Sixth Form College On Home Education

Published by Karen Liu at 1:24pm 3rd April 2020.

Scarborough Sixth Form College is highlighting how it plans to continue teaching its students.

It is so they can finish their courses during the Coronavirus outbreak, so it helps them get into higher education.

The college says it is business as usual for them, but it is just online.

Mathematics teacher, John Armstrong, said:

"We're trying to give them, as normal, an end of college experience as we possibly can.

We're finishing the course with them, providing online lessons, interacting environment which is sort of similiar to Skype, in that they can see us, they can see what we're doing and we can talk to them.

Routine is good and just for their own mental health and for their wellbeing.

Keeping them going and giving them a sense of purpose is so important in these difficult times.

We don't want to just cut them off, we want them to achieve what they've set out to achieve, finish the course and prepare them for university."

John has been speaking to Yorkshire Coast Radio's Paddy in the Morning:

The college has set out other plans for its students to continue the experience:

  • Providing alternative ways of learning for students who may not be able to directly access the lessons we are putting on (e.g. creating and disseminating YouTube videos)
  • Generally fostering a spirit of camaraderie among staff and students that the time still left "at college" matters and that "we are all in this together; let's finish it properly".
