Closures from Friday 20th March
Thursday 19th March 2020
Following yesterday’s staff mail bulletin we now, just 24 hours later, have moved into a new phase of the global war on the Coronavirus.
The Government has announced the closure of nurseries, schools, colleges including private schools and colleges, with effect from Friday 20th March in an attempt to slow down the spread of this deadly virus, which is moving at a rapid pace in London and the South East.
In the prime ministers press conference following today’s Cobra meeting, Boris Johnson announced GCSE & A level examinations would be cancelled, which given the importance of results for young people moving into further and higher education we can assume these closures will be for a longer period of time than the previously indicated 14 day period of time.
The cancellation of state examinations will also mean the cancellation of End Point Assessment. TLT will take advice and guidance from VTCT as to re-scheduling our learners EPA.
We are unsure about salon closures and or reduced working hours of our apprentices, all of which we will monitor by communicating with the Salons through our ongoing review process.
In line with Government guidelines TLT Academy will close at 5.00pm on Friday 20th March 2020 and remain closed until the Government advises to re-open.
