NPQML Autumn 2019 cohort

Due to the uncertain nature of when schools will be open again and the social distancing regulations, it has been necessary to adapt the style of delivery for the remaining elements of this course. This includes the day 3 for the Rushey Mead cohort (17/3/20) and the twilight 2 element for all cohorts. It is likely that this will change to modular online learning with a series of distance meetings with your course tutor rather than face to face learning. This will enable you to complete the course modules remotely at home with live input from your course mentor at specific times. You will also have access to all of the high quality resources through our online portal. We have also extended the deadlines for your project to 2 years from the start of your course rather than 18 months so the submission windows will be in February 2021 and July 2021. All information about how to access the online course materials will be with you in due course.

We will ensure that our TELA NPQ candidates are not put at a disadvantage due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will keep our communication lines open with you. The npq@thomasestley.org.uk email is monitored several times per week so please contact us if you have any queries.
