There is some positive news that travel to the UK will be easier from some countries in Europe and the Middle East. And rules for travellers from France are back in line with the rest of the EU.
We are losing two members of the English UK team this month – and by an amazing coincidence, both are going to train as secondary history teachers.
Tom Weatherley and Tim Barker have both spent their professional lives in ELT, Tom starting as a graduate English teacher and Tim taking his first steps as a teen in his mother's Devon language school. Now with over 30 years' experience between them, both are well-known in ELT and to members, with Tom our conference producer and Tim business development director.

Representatives from member centres as far away as York, Hull, Bournemouth, and Margate braved the heatwave to join us in Westminster on Monday 19 July to protest at the lack of effective government support for the sector.
