Please note that the latest advice issued by UCU here also applies to members working in adult and community education.

We have provided guidance on teaching online and blended learning and extensive advice on returning to the workplace.

Our advice for ACE, as in all sectors, is that there should be no return to face-to-face teaching until it is safe to do so.

We are keen to know what is happening where you work - please send details to  Jane Thompson, UCU bargaining and negotiations official.
