We are committed to supporting you and keeping you informed
about how current and fast-changing pandemic news relates
to our work and well-being.
Following new government restrictions in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic which came into force this week, we are sure that you are considering contingency plans should matters escalate.
Please ensure that any adaptations to Access to HE Diplomas you have decided to make, or feel may become necessary should the situation alter further, are requested as soon as possible.
Please remember that adaptation requests must be made via the adaptations log. Please also remember that adaptations must not be made until you have received approval.
In the COVID-19 Resources section below, you will find the “Adaptation Non-compliance Escalation Steps” document. These steps will be enacted if adaptations are made without prior approval.
If you need any guidance or advice in making adaptations, or are unsure as to whether an action you are planning to take would be an adaptation, please contact us and we will be happy to talk these through with you.
Please also note that Skills and Education Group Access will close for the festive period at 16:30 on 17 December 2021, therefore any requests for adaptations which you need to be processed before the New Year must be submitted via email on the adaptations log by no later than 16:00 on 13 December 2021.
