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 .

Summary

Retrofit, air source heat pumps, solar thermal, battery storage – these are just some of the buzzwords being used as the UK heads towards Net Zero. But what are they? How do they work? How can they reduce carbon emissions? How can you get involved?

In partnership with the Forest of Dean District Council, you will learn about the different types of renewable technologies available and how they work. The different methods of retrofit will also be considered, and how all of these aspects can help reduce carbon emissions. If you are looking for a career change into the green sector, but are not sure where to start, this course is for you.

How will I learn?

This course will be delivered face to face at a local community centre (exact venue to be confirmed), with our experienced staff. There will be practical activities and group learning, as well as plenty of opportunities to ask questions and get the most from your learning.

What can I do next?

Our aim is to move learners into either further learning, or employment. We will work with you and other partners to help you with this.
