Working Practices

  • Our aim will be to minimise population density wherever appropriate
  • Line managers will work with individual colleagues to assess the potential for working from home – full or part-time.
  • There will be some roles that will be required on campus full-time.
  • Arrangements will be agreed to manage work profiles for those unable to attend due to shielding or other legitimate reasons.
  • Support will be provided to staff to enable them to deliver blended programmes. This will take the form of programme-focused staff development sessions in late June and ongoing content development support throughout the summer.

Research Laboratories

  • Research laboratories have reopened on both campuses with reduced capacity and enhanced safety protocols

Specific updates continue to be provided to the research community with important information regarding our approach to ensuring a proper process to accessing laboratories. Please visit ‘Accessing the College’s Research Facilities’ on the RVC intranet to access booking information.
