BMet will be closing for the Easter holiday as planned on Friday 03 April and there will be no lessons over the two-week break.
Teaching will resume on the 20th April via distance learning until the government confirms that education establishments can reopen their buildings.
Cliff Hall, Principal at BMet, said: “I have been extremely impressed to how staff and students have adapted to distance working and learning and with such zeal.
“This has not been an easy period for any of us, but our students have been pleased they have been able to continue with their studies with us, probably as it gives a certain degree of stability in what are uncertain times.”
The college is ensuring that students can continue to access help and support if they need it over the two-week break.
Cliff Hall added: “We appreciate that this continues to be an unsettling time and as such we want to ensure our students can access help and support if they need to over the two-week break.
“That is why our counsellors and mentors will be available, via a reduced service, over the next fortnight.”
