In response to the announcement of a third national lockdown and college closures last week, our college partners are very busy working to support students and apprentices to minimise the impact on their learning. This latest college closure was quite sudden, making it very challenging for colleges to adjust back to wholly online delivery for learners.
With this in mind – and following requests and discussions with our college partners in recent days – Mindful Education is pleased to announce the following assistance for our college partners:
Free additional 6-month access for all 2020/21 learners
To allow all our partners to have peace of mind that existing learners will have access to their online learning with us for as long as they need it, we are providing an additional 6 months free access to all our 2020/21 courses. Partners do not need to take any action to activate this extension as it will be applied automatically to all courses by the end of this week.
Free extended access for all remaining 2019/20 learners until 30 June 2021
We are aware of some existing 2019/20 learners who are still yet to sit all of their exams (many of whom would have been scheduled to finish their qualifications this month). To help with this, we will be providing any remaining 2019/20 learners with free online access to their course up to 30 June 2021. This extension should ensure that they are able to complete their qualifications successfully, getting them ready to progress on with their career and/or next level of qualification.
As with our additional support for 2020/21 learners above, there is no action you need to take regarding this access, which we will apply for all learners by the end of this week.
Support Package offer for AAT Levels 2, 3 and 4
Several colleges have been in touch with us to enquire about support for AAT learners who were studying wholly face-to-face until last week.
In response to these enquiries, we are making support packages available for AAT Level 2, 3 or 4 cohorts that started between 1 September 2020 and 31 December 2020 on a wholly face-to-face delivery approach.
You can find out more about support packages here.
Ongoing Support for our Partners
As ever, we continue to provide unlimited delivery support for our partners, therefore if you do have queries regarding rescheduling any delivery plans – now or in the weeks ahead – please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Operations Team at firstname.lastname@example.org
