To ensure the safety of our staff and learners during this current pandemic, we have sanitising stations installed in the classroom and corridors for learners to use as and when they require. We also have a supply of face masks if learners wish to wear them.

We have socially distanced our classrooms by ensuring a 2-meter distance between tables and enough space for learners to sit one per table and to move around the classroom comfortably.

Our classrooms will cater for smaller numbers during this time with a maximum of 6 per class for the time being.

Each desk is equipped with all of the items the learners will need to get them through the course to include laptop, pens, paper, pencil, ruler, calculator amongst other things.
