COVID-19 Update – 5th January 2021

We hope you had a restful and peaceful Christmas break. Following the announcement last night (4th January 2021) we have set out the following guidance for learners, employers and staff:

  • From this week and for the foreseeable future all Great Start learners will be supported remotely
  • All apprentices will remain remotely supported
  • Learners classed as vulnerable (have an EHCP) will receive 1-2-1 support on a face to face basis as appropriate. We will contact those who this affects
  • Spare laptops will be available for those who need them, we will ascertain who needs them, how they can be distributed and the IT set up process
  • When face to face sessions start again, all rooms will be well ventilated (especially between lessons and at break times)
  • Everyone will have their temperature checked on entry to the building and/or in class
  • All tutors will be wearing appropriate PPE for sessions (a Perspex visor)
  • There will be breaks every 30 minutes in sessions for all learners to use hand sanitiser
  • If a tutor must sit near a learner in a 1-2-1 session, they will not sit face on, but to the side and slightly behind

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us on 01635 35 975 or email
