COVID-19: update 1st October 2020

HLC is continuing to prioritise working from home in light of recent government guidance. However, there are exceptions to this for learners and staff, in regard to face-to-face learning delivery. As a result, from 28th September we re-commenced face-to-face delivery on our This-Ability programme and the majority of HLC’s partners have been delivering learning on a face-to-face and risk assessed basis out in the community for a number of weeks now.

Over the past 6 months, HLC and our partners have successfully developed a blended approach to delivery, combining effective virtual learning, with additional face-to-face contact where necessary. You can view a number of good practice examples in our regular e-bulletin:

For partners who are delivering learning, here is a link to some of the national face-to-face guidance, including a separate note on “what to do if a student is displaying symptoms” guide;

As has been the case since March, HLC remains fully operational and we are conducting business as usual during normal office working hours, Monday to Friday.

To get in touch with us, simply use the email address for your regular HLC staff contact. If you are unsure who that is, drop us a line at and we will ensure the relevant staff member contacts you. HLC staff members are also able to deal with enquiries and issues, as required, via Zoom video meetings.

Thank you for your continued support.
