• College Security requirement so we know who is on site
• It is part of the College Safeguarding policy
• It is your ID to access classes and exams
• So you as a students can identify students, College staff and visitors on site
You will have received your ID badges as part of the enrolment process and the requirements to wear your id were identified at your induction, are within the student handbook, the student code of conduct and on Moodle.
The College is required to be able to identify all persons on the campus. As a result students and staff are issued with a photo ID card and lanyard. YOU MUST WEAR THIS AT ALL TIMES* in College. You will not be able to access any exams or College services (e.g. LRC, Refectory, Shop, Student Services etc...) if you are not wearing your ID.
*Exceptions can be made for health and safety reasons e.g. in workshops, practical sports lessons.
Please note: - any student not wearing their ID card will be told twice to wear one. If on the third occasion a student is caught without one, they will be subject to disciplinary action. You are required report to student services if you do not have your ID card with you in College.
Lost or damaged ID cards must be replaced (through the LRC) and you will be expected to pay the replacement cost for these, though the first set is given to you free of charge. Please do not deface or deliberately damage your College ID card as replacements for these are charged at a flat rate of £10.00.
Your lanyard ID lasts for the duration of your course and must be handed in when you leave.
