National strike action: Classes cancelled on Wednesday 16 January but College open

A day of strike action planned by the EIS, the trade union representing college lecturers, is due to take place on Wednesday 16 January 2019.

All classes on the day are cancelled, however the College will be open for students to access all facilities and learning resources for self-directed study. You do not have to attend College on this day. Our virtual learning environment, Moodle, will be available throughout strike action so you can keep up to date with your studies. Your lecturers will let you know in advance of anything important you should be aware of and any available materials.

Your student support payments will not be affected by the strike action.

Further days of strike action may take place on Tuesday 5 February, Wednesday 6 March and Thursday 21 March 2019. We will update you on any planned action being taken on these dates nearer the time.

If you have any questions or concerns please speak to your lecturer, Student Services or your Students’ Association.

We will keep you up to date with any changes to planned strike action via the Student Portal and our social media pages: Facebook and Twitter.
