To our staff, learners, and employers,
The ongoing situation regarding the COVID-19/ Coronavirus outbreak is changing on a daily basis, and we are taking action in line with guidance from the Government and the NHS.
As you are all aware, the general advice is still to follow social distancing techniques to try to contain the spread of the virus. This is to protect ourselves from Coronavirus, and others more vulnerable as we may be carriers. Part of social distancing is working from home wherever possible, which directly affects our organisation.
The guidance from Government instructs all early years providers to restrict access to settings to only the most necessary members of staff and partners. However, as lockdown is being increasingly lifted we are now allowing tutors back out into the field to nurseries and pre-schools, following guidelines from individual early years settings as to PPE and precautions required.
We are adopting a hybrid approach to working, with visits being a mixture of in-person and remote depending on the needs and preferences of learners and employers.
The restrictions within an office workspace have now been relaxed and so our office is open to booked visitors and staff; social distancing guidelines are to be followed wherever possible.
If you know of anyone experiencing symptoms and/or in self-isolation, please report this to us immediately; the 7-14-day incubation period means anyone that’s been in contact with the individual recently may be at risk, so we ask for you to keep us informed of any developments.
Should you have any questions or concerns at all please do not hesitate to contact us.
With best wishes,
