Adult Community Learning is suspending its classroom-based course provision until further notice. All centres will be closed to learners and the general public as of Friday 20 March. This does not include those who are in vulnerable groups as outlined in recent government guidance.
ACL is in the process of contacting these learners to ensure that adequate support and care is in place. Distance and online-learning will be available for some courses; development of additional online-learning material and courses is already underway. ACL Nurseries and pre-schools will remain open to support vulnerable children and key workers’ childcare needs. Apprentices will continue to study towards their qualifications and be supported remotely. Further information will be provided as soon as it is available.
