Monaghan Institute’s Plans For Reopening This September (Updated 22/06/2020)
Monaghan Institute are planning to reopen its facilities this September in line with the Government’s Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business, adhering to the Return to Work Safely Protocol. Our primary objective is to protect the health and well-being of our staff and learners, and we are busy planning for delivering all our academic programmes in a safe, quality-driven and inclusive way that will continue to adhere to public health advice.
We are planning for a hybrid academic model this September delivering face-to-face classes where possible, incorporating appropriate social distancing protocols. Where face-to-face classes may not be possible due to social distancing requirements, classes will take place using interactive blended learning approaches. We will ensure that student support services including counselling, special education needs and career guidance provisions will remain accessible to students via a mixture of in-college and remote delivery.
Further guidance and information about our reopening this September will issue to registered students prior to our start date.
Protect Each Other
Maintain a Daily Routine
In order to remain positive and keep good mental health to focus on finishing end of year assessments, it is very important that everyone structures daily routines, as much as possible.
We encourage you to check college email regularly for contacts from your tutors in relation to coursework, assessment and exam revision. Continue to work on tasks as directed by your tutors.
Do not panic about exams and/or assessments. Be as best prepared as you can but remember all students in the country are in the same situation because of the Covid-19 virus closure. Your tutors are there to support you.
Mental Health Resources
Try to stay positive and follow HSE guidelines to keep you and your family safe. Below are links to the HSE website with advice on how to ‘Mind Yourself’. There are also online, and phone supports available for anyone that may need to access this.
