Coronavirus: Resources and advice

no comments

The country has been in lockdown since March and we’ve been advised to stay in our homes as much as we possibly can. Colleges have closed and non-essential work is postponed, meaning you’re forced to try and carry on with your course from home for the foreseeable future.


To make things easier for you, we’ve compiled our most useful resources for learners and lecturers to help carry on as normally as they possibly can. Please keep checking back to this page as we will be updating it with more content to help you.


Keep checking our daily news feed for the latest on how the industry is reacting to the COVID-19 situation.
