Remote Education Offer (COVID-19)

 

All courses at Whitehead-Ross Education are currently continuing to be delivered face-to-face following Department for Education guidance.  We have a full risk-assessment in place, which is reviewed and updated regularly, to minimise the risk to learners in attending their classroom sessions.  This includes smaller group sizes, classroom tables spread out with less furniture, hand sanitiser dispensers at the entrance and the requirement to wear masks when arriving, leaving or moving around (you do not need to wear a mask when sat down at your table).

 

Should you need to self-isolate or remain at home once your course has started, you should let your Tutor know immediately.  The following arrangements are in place:

 

Arrangements for adult learners

 

  • You should continue to attend the normal session day/times remotely and will be e-mailed a Zoom link to enable you to attend the class remotely.  Please note that this arrangement is only available for learners who need to self-isolate and is not an optional alternative to attending classroom sessions if you do not need to self-isolate.
  • Your Tutor will e-mail you handouts and work to complete at home, which must be returned on time by the deadline set by your Tutor.
  • Your Tutor may provide you with a personal log-in to access our Moodle e-learning website, which contains course handouts, resources and videos.
  • Completing a course and qualification from home requires commitment and focus.  We expect all adult learners to remain in communication with their Tutor throughout the course and respond to their calls or e-mails in a timely manner.   If you do not respond to calls or e-mails you may be withdrawn from your course, as Tutors have limited time for chasing learners who do not communicate or return coursework on time.
  • If you do not have a computer or laptop at home, your Tutor will post handouts and work to your home address and arrange 1-2-1 sessions on the telephone.
  • If you have any additional needs or requirements, please do not panic.  Our Tutors will provide 1-2-1 support as required to help you.

  • Your Tutor will e-mail you handouts and work to complete at home, which must be returned on time by the deadline set by your Tutor.
  • Your Tutor will post you a CGP Functional Skills Study book for Maths and English to work through at home.
  • We expect you to remain in communication with your Tutor and respond to their calls, text messages or e-mails in a timely manner.
  • If you do not have a computer or laptop at home, your Tutor will post handouts and work to your home address and arrange 1-2-1 sessions on the telephone.
