Staff Cards


It is College policy that all students and staff should visibly wear their college card when on college premises.

If you are a staff member, you may obtain a card from any LR Centre. The process takes just a few minutes and will involve taking your photograph.

In order for the LR staff to be able to produce your card, it will be necessary for you to have a valid and current personal record on the college EBS computer system.  The LR staff will check this for you. If you don't have a valid record then you will need to speak to your line manager.

Your college card contains both a bar code and an internal microchip. So, in addition to being your official form of ID, your card also allows you to gain access to the college buildings (security barriers), allows you to access your printing account at the multi-function printers (proximity scanner), and of course, to borrow items from the college library.

Could we please ask that you strongly encourage your students to also wear their cards (unless there are safety issues. e.g. workshops), and to take care of them. Replacements for lost student card usually cost £2.50.
