If you are going to be absent from college for any reason, you must let us know by calling the academy on 01484 425500.

All absences must be reported to the academy before the date of absence, if you are absent due to illness; please inform us at least an hour before the start of your class.

If you are absent due to:

  • Dentist / Doctor / Hospital appointment
  • Work Responsibilities
  • Family Commitments

Please let us know as soon as you are aware you are going to be absent. This will give your tutor time to prepare tasks for you to complete at home and give you the best chance of staying on track with your learning.

If you are employed as an apprentice, you must also inform your employer that you will be absent from college. The Link Training Academy E-mails employers to inform them of their apprentices’ absence on the day of the absence at 12pm. You should have contacted your employer prior to this email being sent.
