Agreed protocols for a return to face-to-face working in FE in Wales

3 June 2020 | last updated: 4 June 2020

The Welsh government will publish guidance on 10 June which references these protocols for a return to face-to-face working in FE and work-based learning: Agreed FE Wales workplace return protocols [222kb]

College leaders have informed the Welsh government that they will be ready to re-open from 15 June 2020.

This date was not agreed by the joint trade unions.

We were expecting the re-opening date to be three weeks from the date of the minister's statement, clearly the 15th provides for 12 days in which to ensure that all the health and safety regulations can be met.

Please report any concerns you experience to your branch officers.
