Statement to students and applicants

COVID-19 Statement updated Update 28th May, 2021

The 17th May marked the next step in the UK's roadmap out of lockdown. Throughout this stage, IATE will continue to run the majority of our courses face-to-face.  Unless your training is explicitly classed as blended learning, or you have been told that social distancing means your training session is online, students will continue to attend live courses on the premises.

Our policy regarding self-isolating will also remain in place - students are to give three days written notice to request to attend remotely.

We understand that both potential & current students are eager to know our plans for the 2021/22 academic year. We are monitoring the situation & taking on board government guidelines to create a plan that balances the twin aims of providing a rich learning experience with the need for students to self-isolate with the minimum of disruption to their studies. We will, of course, provide complete details for how this will proceed as soon as we know what circumstances will allow.

Our Taster Days - essential for all prospective IATE students - will return to be in-person from the 24th July 2021, our June Taster Day & July Taster Evening will remain online via Zoom.  Please visit our To Apply page to book your place to apply for the coming academic year.

Thank you.
Senior Management IATE
