Important Information – May 2021
More WAES classes are now taking place in our centres, but some classes will still be online. If you are unsure whether your class is going to be in one of our centres, please contact your tutor.
If you are learning from home, please continue to “LOGON and LEARN”. All online lessons will take place at the normal timetabled lesson time and the tutors will discuss how those lessons will operate with learners during the online session. We will continue to support our learners to achieve their learning goals.
Phone lines: Our phone-lines are open from 9am to 5pm from Monday to Saturday: 020 7297 7297.
Test Kits Available
WAES would like to encourage all learners and staff to test themselves before they come onsite or at least twice a week. We have test kits available at our three centres for learners.
Whether you are using a kit that you received online or from your child's school, or a kit that you picked up from us, it is important that you inform us of the outcome of your test. Please visit our www.waes.ac.uk/covid-tests page for more details.
Tutors will be in touch to let you know if you are going to have an exam and what the arrangements are for this.
Learners with EHCP Plans
Some of our learners with Education and Health Care Plans (EHCPs) will be returning to site, unless they are in vulnerable groups. We will contact learners to make arrangements.

Our application system for courses is now online and you can complete the whole application online and also complete your assessment and book an interview, if you need to. There are instructions on this page if you get stuck. We will be on site to help learners who cannot enrol online, but only limited numbers of people will be allowed in the building at the same time.
If you have difficulty with the application process or do not have access to a computer where you can complete this, please call us on 020 7297 7297 for assistance - our phone-lines are open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.
