Further education (FE) providers: return in January 2021



To manage transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19) and ensure education resumes in further education, we are supporting colleges to put in place asymptomatic testing, so that students and staff can access a test before resuming face to face education.

This guidance sets out more information following the announcement on 17 December 2021 regarding testing to minimise cases and transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19) at start of term.
