COVID-19 emergency: updated 29th May 2020

Since 18th March, Humber Learning Consortium’s (HLC) staff team has been operating on a homeworking basis and we will continue to do so until further notice. HLC remains operational and we are conducting “business as usual” as far as possible 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 are also able to deal with enquiries and issues, as required, via Zoom video meetings.

HLC is closely monitoring developments relating to the resumption of face-to-face learning delivery. At present there is no definitive government guidance or timeframe with respect to 19+ provision, therefore the current on-line / distance learning arrangements stand. It is very much a case of “watch this space” and we will notify our partners as soon as we hear anything. In the meantime, HLC contract managers have been in regular contact with their respective delivery partners to ascertain what their planning assumptions are. We would particularly appreciate your continued feedback over the coming 3-4 weeks.      

We are working hard with our delivery partners to ensure the continuation of vital support to learners and programme participants via online learning materials, telephone contact and food/provisions drops. We have seen fantastic examples of support from our partners and we will regularly share these to inspire and encourage everyone to be as proactive as possible.

HLC has developed an on-line resource of learning materials, ideas, and information which can be found here:   

Feel free to use these resources and point us in the direction of any good materials you come across in the course of your work.

HLC is also producing a fortnightly e-bulletin for our delivery partners and stakeholders, with essential information, funding updates, and good practice case studies. The current and back copies of the e-bulletin can be found on the ‘What’s Happening‘ page.

Thanks for your hard work and support.
