14 September 2020 – Webinar: COVID-19- HE Guidance Update

he Department for Education has released new HE guidance for COVID-19 and the changes to the previous guidance are significant in places.

In this short webinar we will be highlighting key parts of the guidance, and in particular discussing the outbreak planning guidance. The guidance also includes new information on opening buildings (including ventilation) and performing arts courses, amongst other changes. We will include some information on NHS Test and Trace and the HEI Communication toolkit. More information can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/higher-education-reopening-buildings-and-campuses/higher-education-reopening-buildings-and-campuses

We hope to be able to share our work with DfE to support our members and other small providers develop outbreak plans which could include a template plan approved at a national level which removes the burden of each provider to seek approval from their local public health service.
