We are in the process of preparing our studios for a safe opening for staff and students in September 2020. Our top priority is the health and wellbeing of all of our small community and so we have introduced sensible protective measures that will ensure we are able to keep everybody as safe as possible in these challenging times. We are following the latest advice from the UK government and Public Health England and reviewing and updating our practices in light of government announcements.
We have adapted our operations in order to ensure that we maintain a high standard of personalised education in line with our mission to provide top level training in Musical Theatre. From October 2020 we will be operating a blended learning curriculum for all MA and Diploma courses with the majority of activities taking place face to face and some online.
In order to plan for what is an unpredictable set of circumstances, Associated Studios will follow the following sequence of scenario planning:
