I am a CAVC student. What does the lockdown mean for me and my course?

From 6pm Friday 23rd October Wales enters a ‘fire-break’ lockdown. This is planned as a short, sharp break to reduce the spread of COVID-19.  

During this lockdown you are required to stay at home and follow government guidance, unless you are working in essential services.  

At the end of Friday 23rd October all Cardiff and Vale College campuses close for all staff and students. 

The planned half term break will then take place between Monday 26th – Friday 30th October for all students. 

From Monday 2nd November term restarts and your learning continues online. You will follow your usual timetable, with all lessons taught online through Microsoft Teams. All our support services will also be available online, go to the CAVC Student Portal and log in with your usual details to find our more. 

At CAVC we will decide on and communicate plans for Monday 9th November onwards, during the week prior to this, taking into consideration any additional measures then put in place by the Welsh Government. This will include details of campuses opening and plans for on campus and online learning. We will keep you up to date through your teachers and by email to your CAVC Student email. We will also post messages to the CAVC App, by text and on our social media.
