Following the Governments recent updates, the delivery Partners have now taken the decision to cancel workshops with immediate effect and throughout April. The main contractor, Blue Orchid have advised that all business advisors are now working remotely, but will continue to deliver 1-1 support via phone, email and skype with those already accessing the support. Additionally, we are currently liaising with our funder to identify and acceptable online solution for the delivery of Masterclasses.
BCU have cancelled their workshops in April, but are also continuing to support via email, skype and phone. They will also continue to offer the online diagnostic tool. The Library have today cancelled all remaining March event’s, but have advised that support will be available via phone. The Prince’s Trust have only cancelled one workshop so far, but expectations are that they will cancel the remaining events in March and possibly April.
The E4S team are logging all cancellations and will monitor drop-out rates and referral rates as things progress over the next month. The team is also liaising with MHCLG on alternative methods of support.
