COVID-19 safety measures in adult community education centres

National COVID-19 restrictions have changed but we have continued to use these safety measures in our adult community education centres to keep both you and our staff safe.

Safety measures in our centres

Some centres will operate a one way system through the building.

Reception areas will have screens.

Face coverings (masks) are optional.

Sanitiser will be provided to use on entry and exit and will be available to use on tables and chairs before and after use and will be used on door handles.

All rooms will be well ventilated. Windows and doors will be open.

Some rooms will be limited to a reduced number of people.

Coming back into our centres - what we'll ask you to do

Preparing to come in to a centre

Some courses will be part online and part in-centre. You'll need to complete both of these to get the most from your learning.

Complete an optional lateral flow test - twice a week for learners attending 2 or 3 days a week, or once a week for once a week attendance. Please do this prior to attendance and forward the results to

Please do not arrive early for your class nor gather in the foyer areas, for example at the end of class or over lunch time.

If you have symptoms of coronavirus, don't attend your class. Inform the centre by phone or email.

If you test positive for coronavirus after attending your course, please inform the centre straight away.

Wear warmer clothing than normal as windows and doors will be open to ensure maximum ventilation.

If you live in the same household as someone with COVID-19 but you're either fully vaccinated or aged under 18 years and 6 months you will not be required to self-isolate unless you are contacted by NHS Test and Trace and instructed to stay at home.

Help protect others by following the guidance on how to stay safe and help prevent the spread.

If you have any concerns about this guidance, please speak with your tutor or centre staff.
