Government vaccine mandates are no longer required from Tuesday 27 September 2022 - this means you will no longer need to supply evidence of your Covid-19 vaccination status to apply for our health programmes. However, most placement providers will require evidence from you that you are fully vaccinated. Placements are an integral part of our health programmes and you'll need to complete these to successfully achieve your qualification. Not being able to provide evidence of vaccination may affect you being able to complete your chosen qualification.
Placements and work experience are an integral part of many other programmes too. Students need to complete these practical elements of a qualification to successfully achieve it and some placement/work experience providers may want to see evidence of your vaccination status. If you are not vaccinated, this may be a barrier to you being able to complete a qualification. Our objective is to support your success in whatever qualification you enrol in but this is also dependent on you meeting requirements set by third party placement providers. We cannot guarantee you a placement if you do not meet these requirements.
