Absence Reporting

FE and HE students: Reporting absence from college

From Monday 14th September, there will a new process for you to let us know that you will not be attending college on any one day.

If you are not coming to college, you need to complete an online form here

It asks some simple questions and is a vital source of information for us to know why you are absent, including if your absence is Covid-related. Please follow this process rather than calling into Student Services or your Course Manager.

(Please ensure you complete the entire form and click submit)

The form should be used:

• To report absence for ANY reason
• Completed every day you are away from college

Please do NOT use this form:

• To request leave / absence in advance. Please talk to your Course Manager to request that. If you get approval for that leave, you just need to fill the form in on the day(s) that you are actually not in college.
• If you are studying from home /college accommodation on TIMETABLED online learning sessions

Thank you and stay safe
