The following advice was last updated Friday 19th June 2020, 9.00am

From the 15th June some students will be invited back into college buildings to complete the technical elements of their qualifications. To view the schedule of technical assessment activities see this page.

We are also beginning to prepare for the re-opening of our sites later in the year. So you can do this safely, we invite you to watch the short video below which lets you know about the measures we have put in place.


In preparation for the start of the next academic year please read the next steps document for your area of study and watch the latest video update from me which you can see here. Dudley College of Technology is proud to be part of Colleges West Midlands and we are committed to the Education and Skills Pledge, which is the blueprint for how we will work together to respond to the impact of Coviod-19 on our economy.

For students who will be joining the college in September for the first time, we will posting a Students Guide to this page shortly and we will of course update this page as we are able to respond to government announcements. We recently held a series of live Question and Answer sessions for new students which you can see here and will be publishing dates of further sessions next week so please stay connected to us via this site or social media.

In the meantime, stay safe.

Neil Thomas
Chief Executive and Principal, Dudley College of Technology
