Covid-19 Secure arrangements (October 2020)

We have taken a considered and cautious approach to reopening and have followed the latest Government guidelines to ensure that we reduce the risk of transmission to a minimum.  Therefore things will look just a little different than before.

We have:

  • Booked a larger venue or reduced class numbers of that you have plenty of space to work, interact with the tutor and your fellow students whilst being socially distanced.
  • Cleaning regimes have been increased with cleaning taking place between each class.
  • A full Covid-19 risk assessment has been implemented
  • Tutors have received additional training to ensure classes are delivered within currnt guidelines.  ArtsLink staff are there to support them in this new way of working.

We all have a shared responsibility to reduce the spread of Coronavirus and therefore ask all our students to support us and cooperate by:

  • Not attending if they are feeling unwell
  • Agreeing to temperature checks upon arrival
  • Regularly sanitising and washing their hands
  • Complying with wearing of face coverings whilst inside the building/classroom (unless exception is identified and agreed)
  • Maintaining social distancing at all times
  • Complying with NHS Test & Trace requirements

We are committed to being responsive and vigilant.  We will continue to regularly monitor advice from Public Health England and the UK Government and take the necessary action to reduce risk.

Cancellation Policy

If you cancel:

Refunds for courses and workshops will only be made if a booking is cancelled within 14 days of the booking date, unless the booking is made within the 14 days prior to the activity start date, in which case no refund will be given.

We recommend that you take out your own insurance in case you have to cancel through illness or unforeseen circumstances.
