How to log in to the College network (VLE) from outside the College

Please see below for step by step instructions to help you log in to your work online. Please follow the picture guide below or click the video link at the bottom of the page.

Please switch off any other VPN tools when accessing college systems as this will result in you being blocked. (FYI: A VPN creates a virtual encrypted tunnel between you and a remote server operated by a VPN service. All your internet traffic is routed through this tunnel, so your data is secure from prying eyes. Best of all, your computer appears to have the IP address of the VPN server, masking your identity and location.)
