Update - Face-to-Face Tuition can resume from 12 April 2021
Private teaching and tutoring
The latest guidance for out-of-school settings states that from 12 April, face-to-face activities can be offered to all children without restriction on the reasons for which they may attend. Teachers should ensure that their teaching space and activities are risked-assessed and Covid-secure, and they should follow the Government’s guidance on working in other people’s homes where necessary.
The latest guidance for FE colleges (covering independent training providers) states that students of all ages can participate in face-to-face learning. We understand this to include adult learners in private tuition where activities are appropriately risk-assessed and Covid-secure.
Because of the increased risk of Covid to older adults, we advise members to take extra care when working with adult learners, and to refer to the Government’s performing arts guidance for additional safety measures. Members may wish to consider whether some provision could remain online for now.
