COVID-19 Update

“we are prepared and ready to support apprentices with resources online”

On the announcement of the government lock down yesterday LEAD limited reverted back to online delivery and support for all its apprentices at all levels. We have communicated to all clients today and guarantee to do everything we can to minimise disruption to learning as we did so successfully during the previous lock down. Since the previous lockdown we have invested in online delivery in the LEAD academy, the message to all studying with LEAD limited is “we are prepared and ready to support apprentices with resources online”.

The latest government announcement did not come as a surprise to us at LEAD, we have been preparing and making contingency arrangements and as a result LEAD limited will continue to remain open throughout the lock down and can be contacted as normal. We want to reassure all clients and those studying apprenticeships that learning will continue and that they will not be disadvantaged during this uncertain period. We want all our apprentices to continue studying wherever they are and we will work tirelessly to ensure they continue to make progress.
