COVID-19 Concerns

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We begin the new academic year in continuously changing and unprecedented times, where currently (21.09.20) local lockdowns are being enforced in the Bridgend, Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Merthyr Tydfil, Newport, and Rhondda Cynon Taf areas. With the potential for further lockdowns, we urge our learners, members and all those we work with to follow Welsh Government and Public Health Wales guidance, and to stay safe during these challenging times.

Our downloadable 'Guidance for Learners' document is regularly updated which includes our latest details on the following:

Our offices and office staffing
Face-to-face courses and online delivery
Branch classes
Steps to take if a learner or a member of their family shows symptoms of Covid-19
Wearing face masks

Although the start of the 2020/21 academic year looks quite different to previous years, our teams have been working hard to ensure that we continue to support our learners and provide as many learning opportunities as possible at this time.

Many of our courses are now being delivered online. Talk to us today by emailing or keep checking our website to see what’s on offer!

Guidance for learners

We are pleased to report plans for the resumption of face to face learning in some areas. The health and safety of our learners and staff remains paramount, therefore every precaution will be taken to ensure that learning only takes place in the classroom where it is safe to do so.

We will continue to monitor Welsh and UK Government advice closely, and will update these webpages in accordance with the guidance. Should we need to suspend face-to-face delivery again, such as in those areas where local lockdowns are in place, we will do so, while making every effort to ensure continuity of learning for our learners.

We continue to monitor the situation and respond to official advice and guidance as it becomes available.
