Health and Safety

Some information about the Institute that is useful for the students and other users.

Health, Safety and First Aid

Our aim is to make the Institute a safe learning environment, and we take the safety of all Institute users very seriously. Accidents will be investigated thoroughly, to endeavour to avoid them happening again. Reception staff can book a taxi if you need to get home if an ambulance is not appropriate.

Please keep your belongings secure and do not leave personal items unattended. Follow the health and safety advice given by your tutor. Please report any building issues to Reception.


We all have a responsibility to respond correctly when the fire alarm sounds. Your tutor will go through the fire evacuation procedures at the start of your course, including the written fire evacuation information in every classroom. Please note the locations of fire exits, and the refuge points. It is your responsibility to tell your tutor if you are unable to use the stairs in case of fire.

In line with current legislation, smoking is not allowed anywhere in the building.

Car Park

Parking is free for students on the day of their classes.  Places are taken on first come first serve basis. The Institute is not responsible for any damage caused to the vehicles in the car park.

Snack Bar

The Institute provides self-service Snack Bar, please pay accordingly to the price labelled.

Lost Property

Items found in classrooms are returned to Reception. We always end up with a mountain of lost property at the end of each term. Unclaimed items are then disposed of, so please do check if you have lost something.

No Left Luggage

The Reception area is very short of space, so regrettably we cannot look after your bags, coats, rucksacks. We are always prepared to help elderly or disabled students to negotiate the stairs with their class materials and books.
