Your placements are being considered by the placement provider and professional body in negotiation with us. We will communicate the exact details on a course by course basis as soon as we have these. Please bear with us as there are many providers and we are speaking to all of them.
Schools and education settings are open at this time. We are waiting for further guidance from the Department for Education on Wednesday. Students can continue to attend their placement settings unless they are advised otherwise by the setting. Some schools and settings are already closed to visitors. Where this is the case, the student should inform their tutor in the first instance. We are monitoring this situation carefully and will provide a further update tomorrow. If students have an individual underlying health conditions, the student is advised to seek guidance from their tutor or the headteacher.
If your current modules include practical elements then your module leaders and course teams will be working towards developing alternative modes of delivery which will be communicated to you on a module by module basis through Canvas. Where module assessments currently include practical aspects these too are being reconsidered and alternatives will be announced in due course.
