Sutton College students have risen to the challenge and continue to successfully study online in many areas of the curriculum.
Many classes that started year long qualifications made the switch over to online learning when restrictions came in to place due to Covid-19. Other classes have run online this Summer term, including numerous History Club sessions, Book-Keeping qualifications and Creative Writing for Wellbeing.
Feedback from students has been very positive with many learning new online IT skills and the College offers support to those for whom online learning is perhaps not the easiest of transitions.
