AAT expects assessments to remain ‘available’ during lockdown

Following the announcement of a second national lockdown in England due to the ingoing Covid-19 pandemic, AAT has issued a statement on how this will impact assessments over the coming weeks.

AAT said: “We currently expect AAT assessments to remain available during the new national restrictions that take effect in England from Thursday 5 November. This is in line with current Government advice, which reiterates the importance of education remaining accessible.

“Colleges and assessment venues must continue to adhere to all Covid-19 regulations and guidance in order to ensure the safety of staff and students, and colleges should consider moving to increased levels of online learning where possible.”

AAT said during the previous national lockdown it saw a sharp rise in distance learning registrations due to the move to online learning by training providers and students having more time and flexibility to study.
