Message from our Chief Executive:

Dear customers,

We welcome the Prime Minister’s plan to take England out of lockdown and his timeline for a route back to normality.

The continued safety of our customers and team is always a priority for us. We need to ensure we meet our commitment to fully support our apprentices, to deliver their training and to achieve their programmes.

We have carefully considered what this means for the way forward. S&B will have a phased approach to the return of our apprentices back to Bristol. We need to remain cautious due to the wide range of locations and countries our apprentices travel from and the government advice concerning travel and spread.

From the 8th of March, all final year and local apprentice groups will be invited back to the academy to study on site. All apprentices studying for the final assessments for end point will continue to be invited to attend the academy. Our Education team will be updating and sending out new timetable schedules to confirm attendance.

We will strictly adhere to DFE guidelines, so please ensure all learners bring their own PPE including supplies of face masks. We will continue to check updates from the DFE on their recommended guidance on social distancing, testing and the wearing of masks in the classrooms.

From April 12th, if further travel and amenity restrictions are lifted as planned, we will endeavour to open the academy for as many apprentices as possible and a further announcement will be made on this nearer the time.

We wish to thank all of our partners and apprentices for their continued support and understanding.

Best wishes,

Phil Marsh, CEO of S&B Automotive Academy
