Since my last email some of you have been in touch to ask if Covid testing is mandatory for learners on ‘in person’ classes.
Just to confirm, we are not asking learners to take covid tests before attending courses.
The information on testing was purely to let everyone know that tests are available to all UK residents if they would like them. My apologies for any confusion caused.
Some courses are returning ‘in person’ from next week although we will not be at full capacity and those classes that are returning will still have smaller than usual maximum numbers, social distancing classroom layouts, and sanitising materials on hand.
We continue to ask learners to wear masks (unless they are exempt) as they move around the building. You can remove masks in the classrooms but where social distancing is not possible, for example if the tutor is guiding you with your project or piece of work, we ask both the tutor and the learner to pop a mask or visor back on briefly.
We are not offering tea and coffee at the moment, so remember to bring a drink with you if you want one.
We still have many courses running online so if you like learning online or are not quite ready to return, there are still activities and classes you can join.
Looking forward to seeing some of you in person soon
