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 .

Additional Information

As this course is for individuals 19+ you can apply for an Advanced Leaner Loan to cover the costs of this course. Eligibility for the loan doesn’t depend on your income, and there are no credit checks and Interest is charged from the date the first payment is made to us. The Advanced Learner Loan, plus any interest, has to be paid back, but not until you’ve finished or left your course, and your income is over the repayment threshold. You may be able to get Adult Education Budget (AEB) grant funding however you will need to check this with us before you apply for an Advanced Learner Loan as you can’t get both types of support.

You can get your loan wiped by progressing and completing a Foundation or BA/BSc (Hons) degree progamme.

Student Finance England will ‘write off’ any outstanding Advanced Learner Loan balances you owe for an Access to HE course once you complete a higher education course. This means you would not have to repay the Advanced Learner Loan.
