COVID-19: update 9th November 2020
Despite England entering a second national lockdown on 5th November 2020, there are some critical differences from an education and training standpoint, compared to the lockdown in Spring.
This time, the government advises that the provision of education should continue. In the case of delivery to young people, this should remain on a face-to-face basis, where it is safe to do so. With regard to adult learning, the new guidance states that “adult education settings should consider moving to increased levels of on-line learning where possible”.
The new national guidance (issued 5th November 2020) can be found here.
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: https://www.hlc-vol.org/whats-happening/
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 email@example.com 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.
