Hi all,

I was just wondering what other colleges are doing with their timetable? My daughter has just started at Bird and has 3-4 hours a day in college in a bubble of 10 and then 1-3 hours of online work each day. X
From what I can see on social media the second years seem to be having all their lessons online.
3rd years also all online and back in college the beginning of October.x

Almost a full timetable for dd, but no large ensembles and tap kept in year groups rather than streamed by ability across all years.

Not had the official email yet from Emil Dale but understand that students will be kept in their Year Group Project Bubble for everything - so half a year group of around 20 students (BTEC 2 have two Musical Theatre projects running side by side so will audition for and be allocated for one - also I believe taking into consideration of who is living or travelling together) Everything in the studios (they have more now) including individual singing but that is reportedly being done through Zoom rather than face to face. So sounds like no ability grouping this term at least. We're just glad hearing it's not online! But waiting anxiously for official confirmation before they start on 21st. And of course it could all change...

Wow. I’ve just received all the Covid related safety advice from EDA and all the procedures they are implementing. It is very comprehensive and well thought out. They have clearly put a lot of thought and time into this. I am completely reassured they are doing everything they possibly can in these incredibly difficult times. Well done EDA. My son is beyond excited to get going with his training with you. =D> =D> =D>

My DD is going into 2nd Year BTEC. Which year will your son be in? Can't recommend it more highly - although I expect it will feel very different for DD compared to when she left on March 16th! Good luck to your DS - he'll love it there!

Thank you amo185 it seems a fantastic college and we are excited for him to start. He is starting year 1 BTECH . I am sure it will feel very odd for those returning.
