Coronavirus: Apprenticeship Information

Dear ATF’s and apprentices,


Please see below the advice that is available from the Institute for Apprenticeships website.



This will be the best place for you to find information on how the Coronavirus might affect your apprentice/apprenticeship.


I have contacted the colleges and have been reassured that distance teaching will continue during these uncertain times, backed up by regular contact from the field officers, who will obviously take all necessary precautions.


I wish you all the best and encourage you to look at the positives rather than to listen to the negatives that are being banded around, common sense will prevail.
