With the scale of Coronavirus growing every day, and social distancing becoming the new norm, it’s easy to be discouraged as events are canceled, community connections are lost and the things we would normally do to entertain ourselves become increasingly difficult to access.
While our classes may be postponed and our premises closed, we at WOMEN’STEC want to assure our students that we aren’t going anywhere. Our staff will continue to work from home and are working hard for our students to ensure our community remains strong.
We want to continue to be a source of support, learning, and community for our students and we are busily working on plans to ensure we all stay connected.
Throughout the coming weeks, our staff will be calling all our students to check-in and make sure you are ok, and to check if there is anything you need that we can help with. We understand that this can be an isolating time and we want to assure you that we are still here if you need us. If you would prefer not to be on our calling list, please let a member of staff know.
We have also set up a group over on Facebook called WOMENSTEC Community Group, you can access this through our main Facebook page by clicking on Groups. There we will be sharing resources under a range of topics from gardening & DIY, to managing stress and occupying children while the schools are off. There is also a community chat forum where you can connect with other students, build friendships and seek support.
This group has been designed with you in mind so if there is anything else you would like us to include just let us know. We want the group to be a thriving online community that will help us all through these difficult times and we look forward to engaging with you there.
Our team is also working hard on ways to improve our service and course offerings to you so that once social distancing has been lifted, we will be raring to go with a suite of new courses and opportunities. It is a strange time, but it is also an exciting time.
If you need to get in touch with us, you can still do so through our main number (02890 749810) or by emailing email@example.com.
Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
