Covid-19 - Term 1 (October to December 2020) Course Format Update
As a result of Covid-19 and to ensure the safety of all ELTC staff and students we have made some changes to Part-time Evening courses:
- The classes will be taught face-to-face, but we will only be allowing small groups in compliance with the latest UK Government guidelines on social distancing and public health.
- Students should be aware that the classes might need to be moved to online delivery if Government guidance changes.
- For face-to-face classes students are required to bring a mobile device or laptop to access materials and electronic handouts during the lesson.
- We will keep you informed of any changes to the format of the course (if required) after you apply.
