Coronavirus: updates on programme delivery

March 19, 2020

We understand what a busy and challenging time this is for teachers and schools following yesterday’s announcement of school closures across the country.

At Ambition Institute, we want to play our part in supporting you through these exceptional circumstances. We are therefore suspending all delivery of our programmes until after Easter. This includes online learning and submission deadlines as well as face-to-face delivery. All face-to-face delivery is suspended until at least the end of April at this stage.

We’ve made this decision to try to give schools the time and space to focus on the most important things at this time. We understand that continuing professional development will be difficult to engage with in the current circumstances and could become an unwelcome distraction.

If you’re a participant or a partner school, we’ve answered some of the most pressing questions you might have on the link below, so please do take a look. You’ll also find information there on how to get in touch with us with questions on specific programmes and events.
