Following Government guidelines and official advice received yesterday, the MIRA Technology Institute will be closing as of Friday 20th March 2020 at 4.30pm .
Details of the provision of our revised offer in response to government instructions will follow in due course. All campuses will be open for the rest of this week and students are asked to attend their classes. The health and safety of our students and staff is our highest priority. We will continue to follow advice and monitor this situation closely while ensuring that we remain the cornerstone of the community during these uncertain times.
Please be assured that the MTI has put robust plans in place to ensure that the vast majority of curriculum and business functions can continue during this enforced closure. Information for students about studying from home, exams and how we can support our community through this challenging time will be sent to all staff, students and stakeholders in the coming days.
We understand and recognise that you may have concerns and ask for your support as we work together to ensure the good health of all of our staff, students, stakeholders and our local communities.
We will keep staff and students informed via email, social media and the website of any changes to the situation. Please continue to monitor the website and social media outlets for updated communications.
If you are studying with any of our partners NWSLC, HOBIRA MIRA, Coventry University, Loughborough University or University of Leicester please contact their safeguarding or welfare teams direct for support.
