6th May 2021

To our Learners and service users,

We welcomed some of our learners back on site on Monday 19th April 2021.  The site will operate at reduced capacity and therefore there will still be the requirement to continue virtual delivery in some instances.  Your tutor will have already informed you of your delivery plan for the start of term.  Our key priority is the health and safety of you all. The Government has made available to every adult in the country the ability to access regular testing, whether you have symptoms or not, either by booking an appointment in a community venue or obtaining home testing kits.  You can find links here to either book a test or obtain kits  https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/testing/regular-rapid-coronavirus-tests-if-you-do-not-have-symptoms/   We would encourage everyone to undertake regular testing.

The return to face to face delivery will be subject to strict social distancing measures and other protocols.  Attendance at site remains by appointment only and everyone will be required to wear a mask or face covering at all times whilst on site in accordance with Government requirements.  We will of course continue to update our measures as and when changes are announced by the Government and as the roadmap progresses.

Should you have any queries, you can contact your Tutor or the Curriculum Manager for your Course:

For general enquiries please telephone the team on 0345 842 0012 or email them at newdirections@reading.gov.uk

I continue to work with our community venues to explore the possibility of a return to delivery on site, and I will keep you updated on our progress.
