AAT Classroom Courses – Restart Update
We are happy to announce that AAT Classroom Based courses are resuming back to normal from 01/07/2020 across all centres in UK. As Government guidance shifts its focus from lockdown to re-starting economies, we’re keen to provide opportunities for students to re-start their courses and progress with their studies, where it is deemed safe and appropriate to do so within local social distancing guidelines.
Measures Taken to Ensure Safe Learning Environment
We have taken additional measures across all centres in UK as below
- Enhanced and deep cleaning procedures
- 2m Distance Markings where possible at all centres
- Additional arrangements for Hand Wash and Hand Sanitiser
- Limiting maximum number of learners at one time
- Paperless environment – limiting use of printing and use of papers
How Will It Work?
We shut down all our centres back in 18/03/2020, so when we restart the lessons, it will be from the point we left off. So, for example if any student had the first lesson of Bookkeeping Transactions before the closure, on resumption the lesson will start from the 2nd lesson. Every student will be sent the updated Timetable by email by 15/06/2020, if you do not receive the email by that date, please contact us after this date. We are resuming classroom lessons for all AAT Accounting and Bookkeeping Batches/Cohorts.
Moreover, all AAT Assessments are resuming from 01/07/2020 across all centres of Osborne Training in UK.
