Like most organisations, Villiers Park Educational Trust is having to take action to respond to the challenges of the current COVID-19 pandemic. The need to maintain social distancing has meant significant changes to the way we deliver our activities, such as replacing face to face and residential activities with online delivery (for example, using video conferencing to support mentoring).
To ensure that the Trust remains in financial good health and we are able to pick up and carry on delivering our innovative programmes when restrictions are lifted, and that we can continue to provide advice and support for the young people we work with during the current period, we have made some temporary changes to the way we operate and deliver our activities:
We anticipate that there are likely to be a number of pressure points over the next months, and we are putting plans in place to offer targeted support during key periods; when calculated GCSE and A level results are issued (July / August), during the university confirmation period (August) and leading up to September for those students and scholars entering university. We also expect Year 12 students planning to apply to University this year, and particularly those who are looking at early entry (Oxbridge, Medicine, Dentistry or Veterinary Studies), will experience specific pressures.
