The questionnaire is open to learners of all ages, and on all courses.If you are learning or training with more than one provider you may be sent an email by each of these providers, and are welcome to complete a questionnaire for each one.

We would be grateful if you would fill in the questionnaire to help us understand how well the further education and skills provider supports its learners to ensure the best possible outcomes.

You can complete the questionnaire and find out more information about it by going to the Learner View website:

Use of Electronic Cigarettes
by Lee Kennedy - Saturday, 15 February 2014, 11:27 AM

Please Note

The use of Electronic Cigarettes will not be permitted inside College buildings, inside College Vehicles (and those hired for College business), or at entrances and exits to College buildings.

This approach aims to avoid confusion between electronic cigarettes and tobacco smoking, by providing a consistent message that smoking or ‘perceived smoking’ is unacceptable in these locations. This also supports and reinforces the actions of Students adhering to the College Smoke-Free Policy and reminding tobacco smokers to move away from entrances/exits and use the designated shelters.

Electronic Cigarette users are reminded that their use is not appropriate in the areas where real cigarettes are prohibited by the College Policy.

Thank you
