Hope it's okay to post this here! We are looking ASAP for someone who could help with some general labouring next week (week beginning 23rd May). The role would be assisting the lead carpenter with general work converting a warehouse to a showroom and workshop (loading tools, waxing furniture, etc). The job is in Alton but transport can be provided if needed (from Farborourgh or Aldershot area). Initially this is for one week but if the working relationship is good and hard work is seen, there is potential for a full time job offer. Please message me or email [email protected] for more info! All ages and experience welcome to enquire!

Changes to face coverings at college from Monday 17th May

You may be aware that the government is updating its advice on the wearing of face coverings in education.

As a student you will no longer have to wear face coverings in lessons from Monday 17th May, however to help protect yourself and others, face coverings will still need to be worn in communal areas (such as corridors and study spaces) where there is not space to adequately distance. We expect that you will be wearing your Farnborough-branded mask when you do need to wear one.

Some close-contact subject areas are unaffected by this change. This includes sport, hair and beauty, and catering. This is because face coverings are still required by other regulations set by industry.

We are aware that some students will be anxious about no longer wearing a mask, so we are reminding all students to please consider and respect each other’s feelings and circumstances. This includes maintaining a safe distance from others wherever possible and behaving professionally at all times.

You should feel reassured that the twice-weekly lateral flow testing for all students will continue, and the College continues to monitor results and cases closely.

Please keep your college mask safe, continue to regularly wash them, and bring this to college with you each day for use in communal areas.

We may be advised to reintroduce the wearing of face coverings for students and staff for a temporary period in response to particular localised outbreaks, including variants of concern. If this happens we will contact you as soon as possible.

While we can now look forward to seeing your smiles more often, please continue to wash your hands frequently, wear a face covering when required in other places (such as public transport), and maintain social distancing where possible.

If you have any questions, please contact your personal tutor or programme manager.
