Learning Bytes – May 2021

Learning Bytes e-newsletter button

Welcome to the latest edition of Learning Bytes, your regular e-newsletter from Buckinghamshire Adult Learning.

We were really pleased to welcome our learners back to our centres in April.

We continue to be Covid-safe with safety measures in place including the two-metre rule and social distancing in classrooms, regular cleaning and ventilation. Our staff, tutors and learners are now being encouraged to take part in regular lateral flow testing.

We hope you enjoy this newsletter and the stories covered which help demonstrate the wide variety of courses we offer.

We hope to see you at one of our courses soon.

Best wishes,
Buckinghamshire Adult Learning
