National guidance on school closures is here: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/schools-colleges-and-early-years-settings-to-close.

There is also guidance on social distancing – what does it really mean and why do it?  

Meanwhile, we’ve updated our online resources section here: https://ways2work.org.uk/jobseeking-resources-where-to-next/

Thanks for the suggestions! We’ve got 11 online course providers on there now with a short description and links. One of them that you may be able to help us with is YouTube. There are a lot of learning and jobseeking YouTube channels out there, we’ll be updating the website with specifics once we’ve researched further. If you have a favourite, then please let us know and we’ll include it.

Please keep us updated with your services so we can share!
