      As lockdown starts to ease, preparation for face-to-face delivery will be underway, however there will be elements of remote working still in place. With that in mind, the additional resources uploaded to our VLE pages at the beginning of lockdown are still available. Below you will find:

      • the most up-to-date ESFA guidance around evidence requirements in the Covid-19 Updates tile
      • resources relating to domestic abuse support and cyber bullying, amongst other resources in the Keeping Safe During Lockdown tile
      • and links to online learning or courses in the Learning Resources tile
      • Plus all the normal STEP related documents
