Based on the latest government rulings in response to the COVID situation in the UK, we have safely re-opened our Nottingham and Birmingham centres. All classes are now available 100% face-to-face.

In order to ensure that everybody feels safe and comfortable, we will be doing the following:

Our commitment to students' health and safety

  • Our trusted partners can safely meet and greet students at the airport. All drivers will wear a facemask and they will have received COVID-19 health and safety training.

  • We will provide health and safety training to all staff in relation to COVID-19.
  • Posters are located throughout the centre to remind all persons to maintain social distancing where possible and frequently wash hands. 
  • Any trips and activities that may take place will be risk assessed for safety. 

  • All students will have QR code checks and declare they are well before entering our centres each day.
  • Hand sanitiser, sanitising wipes and face masks gel will be freely available around the centres.
  • All students are encouraged to wear masks in communal spaces in the centres.

  • If students display symptoms of COVID-19, we will assist students to isolate safely in their accommodation.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19? 

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature).
  • new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual).
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.

It is important to remember that 1 in 3 people with COVID-19 do not have symptoms but can still infect others. We recommend regular testing where possible. You might be able to collect rapid lateral flow tests from your local pharmacy.

How can I prevent catching it?

  • Wash hands your regularly for a minimum of 20 seconds with soap and hot water.
  • Maintain social distancing where possible and, if social distancing is not possible, wear a face mask or visor.
  • Use hand sanitiser where you are no able to wash your hands.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze but if you do not have a tissue available, use your sleeve (not your hand).
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with those who may be sick.

Feeling unwell?

If you are feeling unwell in the United Kingdom, you should stay home. 

If you are worried about your symptoms and you are not sure what to do, you can use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service which can offer advice.

Call 111 if you cannot get help online. Do not go to places like a GP surgery, hospital or pharmacy.
