Due to the prolonged nature of this COVID-19 situation, all HES off-site and on-site training programmes and school and early years provider Quality Assurance and Advisory visits from the Local Authority have be suspended until further notice.
If you require a specific critical training course, and this can be delivered remotely, please make contact with the relevant department to make necessary arrangements. In respect to future resumption of business as usual, we will aim to give schools ample notice in advance.
We recognise that the suspension of contractual visits and training, especially if these have been prepaid, may have finance implications for all parties concerned. To this end, you can rest assured that internal discussions are already underway within the Local Authority in this regard and you will be advised in due course.
Please note that this information has been sent to all headteachers and business/finance leads across schools.
