KT&A centres in the second lockdown period

KT&A centres in the second lockdown period

Dear Students,

As you will appreciate, the recent announcement concerning a second national lockdown has left many people looking for clarification regarding the implications for CLS and adult and community learning in general.  This is what we know:

The government’s intention is for all schools, colleges and universities to remain open.  Having sought clarification on this, it is now clear that adult and community learning settings are also included in this definition, i.e. they are also expected to remain open for at least the next month.

The following centres will therefore remain open as scheduled for face to face classes:

  • Gravesend
  • Margate
  • Sittingbourne

These centres will be open for scheduled classes but may, however, close at times when no classes are scheduled.  All other main centres will remain closed.

This is clearly a highly fluid situation which may change at short notice, and we will keep you informed when we have any definite information that changes the situation described here.

Several changes have been made to these centres to make them Covid-19 secure:

  • The installation of sanitiser stations
  • New instructional signage
  • The use of spatial surveys to ensure that social distancing can be maintained
  • The installation of screens where appropriate
  • The implementation of a test and trace system

Help to stop the spread of Coronavirus. If you are visiting a centre, and you have the NHS Covid-19 App then please scan the QR code on display when you arrive to check-in. The App can be downloaded through the App Store or Google Play. You do not have to have the App to attend our in centre courses but you may wish to do so.

We are fulfilling our responsibility to test and trace through our register system. Details are held for 21 days for test and trace purposes. All learners attending our centres (including initial assessments) must sign in and out.
