Staff Information

The wellbeing of our staff, students and our wider community is of paramount importance to us. We are a caring institute and we will continue to do all in our power to steer our organisation successfully through this crisis.  

  • For the past few months management and staff of the Institute have been busy preparing for a safe return to work and study for all staff and students, and these plans continue to evolve with national guidelines and the Framework for the Delivery of Higher Education programmes (Department of Further and Higher Education).

  • The Institute has developed a model for academic delivery 2020/21 which places the welfare of our students, staff and communities at the forefront of our thinking. The level of on- and off- campus activity will vary depending on the programme. All lectures, tutorial and practical classes will be delivered remotely (off-campus) for the academic year 2020/21. Learning activity such as laboratories and workshops or those that require special equipment will occur on-campus but be subject to appropriate social distancing and PPE based on the physical layout of the learning spaces.

  • WIT Management are continuing to update the live COVID response plan to enable more staff to return to the campus in line with the return to work safety protocol and the easing of COVID restrictions. Remote working will continue where possible to do so. 

  • Further information will issue and staff should continue to check email and remain in contact with their line manager for advice.  Line managers are working through a COVID checklist with their teams including the review and development of risk assessments and segregated teams for each department. 

We continue to be a supporting community and I know that we will work through this together. Remember, “Be smart and inform yourself about coronavirus”, “Be prepared” and, very importantly, “Be kind and support each other”.
