The situation with COVID-19 is unpredictable, and CAFRE’s approach to teaching and learning activities, fully abiding by Public Health Agency requirements, will continue to be flexible as the situation develops. It is quite likely that at least some of the activities that would normally take place in a classroom setting will be online.
As a student it is therefore very important that you have access to a suitable device and adequate broadband. Please read the Computing requirements document.
If you can’t get access to a suitable device and/or adequate Broadband or cellular (4G) services or you can’t afford to pay for them, and you have no suitable alternative, please notify your Course Manager by email and copy our Student Support Officer Lesley-Anne Beacom into your communication (Email: Lesley-Anne.Beacom@daera-ni.gov.uk)
