Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

FUTURE BRIGHT

Do you know someone who could benefit from support to improve their career prospects?

Future Bright is a new FREE programme that has been designed to help individuals who are currently in paid work and receiving in-work benefits, into more flexible, secure and better-paid careers. Employment can be full time, part time, zero hours and self-employment.

The project is tailored to the individual and we set goals and actions to help them progress towards their chosen career aspirations, or improve their current employment through advice and training working with them on a 1:1 basis. Through the scheme, individuals can access a broad range of support from apprenticeships, to wellbeing, to support paying for the cost of training and equipment that are needed to progress and reach goals.

Who is eligible?

The scheme is operated by the West of England Combined Authority, so it is open to residents of Bristol, South Gloucestershire or Bath and North East Somerset.

To be eligible, individuals should be aged 19 or over, in paid work and receiving one or more of the following in-work benefits:-

  • Working Tax Credit
