Colleges and Tutors

The Mindful Education team is working hard to ensure that we continue to provide full support to all of our college partners during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We have also offered colleges the opportunity to use our AAT Level 2 and Level 3 online courses and apprenticeships free of charge during the college closure until the end of the academic year.

We are working with college curriculum teams to develop plans for flexible delivery with appropriate social distancing for the 2020/21 academic year.

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

Extension of Free of Charge Access

Following discussions with students and tutors, we have made the decision to extend the free of charge access to our courses for colleges and training providers until 18th September. We are currently supporting over 5,500 learners from 100+ colleges through this offer and we are keen to continue to provide support as students and apprentices prepare for exams and assessments that have been delayed by the lockdown and college closures.

There are many resources for colleges and tutors who will be teaching remotely. The Association of Colleges (AoC) have compiled a series of resources for colleges to access throughout the crisis.

TES have also made many of their resources free to access.

Support for your students

Existing Online and On Campus tutors and their students should seek support via their usual contacts at Mindful Education. For those colleges taking advantage of the offer of free courses and apprenticehsips, students should be encouraged to contact their tutor in the first instance, or raise a technical ticket via the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). New students should also be encouraged to 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 online courses.

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

Please encourage your students to follow our Instagram and Facebook pages, where we will be sharing news, advice and study tips.

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.
