14th October 2021
As you may be aware, Stagecoach South West bus services will be disrupted on Monday 18th October, due to industrial strike action being taken by drivers. We understand that this may be a concern to a number of our learners; We would like to assure everyone that we will continue to provide support and advice to learners and that they will not be disadvantaged if they are unable to travel on the day.
Is South Devon College closing for the day?
All South Devon College sites will remain open and lessons will be running as normal. If learners are unable to access college due to their bus being cancelled and being unable to travel by other means, they are required to inform their tutors as soon as possible.
For the small number of courses which have taken the decision to study remotely for the day, those learners will be informed by their tutors by the end of this week (Friday 15th October).
How can we find out which bus services will be cancelled or disrupted?
