Currently, Government advice is that limited numbers of school children may be returning to school on 1st June, with the possibility of some 16-19 year olds returning.
They advise that further education colleges may ‘begin some face to face support with year 10 and 12 pupils (only), although we do not expect these pupils to return on a full-time basis at this stage’.
This position will be reviewed on 30th May when further information will be available.
We are obviously anxious to reopen but regard too swift a reopening to be reckless as we must safeguard the health of our staff and students alike. To this end we will obviously be working within Public Health England and Government guidelines, our COVID-19 Risk Assessment is available.
Training will look quite different going forward, as too will our Training Centre, where we are currently setting the scene for the ‘new normal’.
Watch this space for further updates.
