Due to the current Covid-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, our first priority remains the safety of learners, employees and our assessment associates.

SIAS will continue to comply within the parameters as set by Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE) and we await their further guidance and direction which is expected from IfATE this week.  The Department for Education has issued guidance for any disruption which may be experienced during on programme learning for the apprentice.

Given the extraordinary situation in which we and our partners find ourselves (employers, training providers, apprentices) there is a need to take a balanced and reasonable approach in these situations.  We are committed to working with you to minimise the disruption given the structure of the respective Assessment Plans and access to employer sites.  Where assessments can be conducted remotely we remain ready to work with our partners to facilitate them.

Open and timely communication between all parties will ensure that we can manage our way through this current situation as best as we can.  To that end, the SIAS team and our associates remain here to provide support and assistance and can be reached via:
