UPDATE ON CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

 After reviewing the ongoing situation in relation to COVID-19 our priority continues to be the health and safety of our exhibitors and visitors.  It is highly likely that social distancing measures will remain in place for some time and travelling to the events could be high risk for some people; it will also be challenging to maintain the required distance at a busy event.  We have therefore taken the difficult decision to postpone all Sight Village events until 2021.

We are currently putting together our 2021 calendar of events which will be shared with you via this web page as soon as all the venues are confirmed.

We are sure that you understand how difficult it has been for us not to be able to deliver a Sight Village to you this year and we want to keep in touch with you as much as possible.  There will be a newsletter available shortly which will be emailed to you if we have your details and you have given us permission to contact you.  We will also upload it to this web page when it’s available – so please keep checking!

We do have plans to host a small event at Queen Alexandra College in October this year with a restricted number of exhibitors and visitors to enable us to ensure social distancing and other safety measures can be adhered to at all times.

If you would like more information about the October event, the newsletter or the 2021 events please email us at sv@qac.ac.uk and we will be happy to keep in touch with you.

We look forward to seeing you again in 2021!

What the students say

The College has helped me to feel more confident and develop my independence. Staff are really helpful and provide lots of support whenever I need it.
