Continuing to support you

We are continuing to stay in touch with our students during the COVID-19 pandemic with reassurance of our ongoing commitment to their studies.

With the extension of lockdown measures in the UK, we are now getting used to a ‘new normal’, whereby with a handful of exceptions, we are staying at home in order to protect our NHS and save lives.

What this means for us

As a distance learning provider, we are continuing to operate as close to normal as possible within all Government guidelines.

We as a college understand we have a vital part to play in slowing the spread of the virus as we continue to operate and we take this responsibility very seriously. This has included facilitating the great majority of our staff working remotely from their homes.

We continue to welcome new and past students onto our courses. We are currently still receiving postal assignments daily, but please remember you can also submit your assignments by email to info@ccpt.info, this will be marked and returned to you as soon as possible.

What this means for you

As our student services support staff are now working remotely, some of you may experience short delays compared to our usual level of service when contacting us during this time. We kindly ask you to please bear with us – we are doing all we can to continue to support all current and prospective students.

We believe learning can be a great source of comfort and fulfilment and home-study is a great way to make positive use of any free time you may have. We are here to support you and your self-development in any way we can.

We will continue to communicate any updates as the situation progresses. May we wish you and your loved ones all the very best during this period.
