ARE YOU PREPARED FOR VIRTUAL TEACHING
Make sure your school is prepared to continue teaching with virtual teaching methods if your school is forced to close
Student’s and pupils across the UK have now returned to school, although this academic year is now facing many unprecedented changes. With Coronavirus cases across the country slowly rising, there are fears the increased contact will lead to further outbreaks. Although the government’s priority is to keep school’s open, there is no reason to remain unprepared in the event of further closures from a second lockdown or an outbreak within a school. Just in case of this scenario, it is vital for school’s to have a virtual teaching plan in place to keep structure and normality to teaching, without further disruptions.
