Covid Secure online workshops for ELT providers

Ensuring the safety of staff and students is paramount at this time and this session provides an opportunity to look in more depth at how schools can open as safely as possible.  The aim is help schools manage the various stages of the student experience, from arrival through first day, lessons, social activities and free time, whilst maintaining a safe environment for all. 

The sessions will look at:

  • The measures that need to be considered as part of reopening successfully 
  • Ensuring our risk assessments are as comprehensive as possible 
  • Scenarios to explore situations to help schools consider the implications in their specific situation
  • An opportunity to discuss concerns and share ideas
