Support for Colleges and Tutors

College re-opening:
As colleges re-open from 8 March, the Mindful Education team are liaising with our partner colleges to discuss any changes to course calendars. Colleges can return to some face-to-face teaching, or may choose to retain virtual sessions for learners. Students and apprentices studying a Mindful Education course can continue to study at home as usual and online lessons will continue to be released in line with existing course calendars. As colleges re-open, the Mindful Education team will be able to provide advice to curriculum teams about recommended approaches to scheduling assessments. Tutors should contact learners to confirm arrangements.

The Mindful Education team will continue to provide full support to all of our college partners during the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

If you have any questions regarding our work with colleges, please do not hesitate to contact us on

Extended Access for Current Students

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.

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. As with our additional support for 2020/21 learners above, there is no action you need to take regarding this access as it will be applied automatically.

Support Packages Offer

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 the college closures.

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.

Support for your students

We have created a resource hub for students, which we hope will address the most common queries.

VLE Guides

A comprehensive user guide is available for tutors and students. To access the guide, log in to the VLE and click ‘Help and Support’ in the top menu, then select ‘User Guide’ from the drop down menu. This guide can be downloaded and printed if you wish.

Tutors and students can also watch the VLE demo video, which is in the course introduction section of the VLE. This will provide a good overview of the system and how to get the most out of our courses.
