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 .

English and Maths

Literacy and numeracy are two of life's most valuable skills and employers continue to stress the importance of achieving English and math qualifications; many college courses require you to attain functional skills or GCSEs before progressing to the next level of study, so if you are thinking about a new job, exploring a career progression, or you simply want to build your skills and confidence, then why not sign up to one of our courses. We have a wide range of options and to suit your needs and are proud to support over 500 adults a year to achieve their goals.
