COVID 19 Update - 24th April 2020

Further to the  announcement by the Secretary of State First Rung centres will be closed from Monday 23rd March 2020 until further notice.

We are working in closely with the local authority to support vulnerable young people the children of key workers to continue their learning at First Rung.

We remain committed to providing our learners with learning and education and are therefore putting an on-line learning platform in place to support those learners who are unable to attend our centres to allow them to continue with their learning.

We have also set up on-line mentoring, support and IAG for our learners who can contact our qualified and specialist staff on 07495 464810 or 07495 464813 or you can email fmuratori@firstrung.org.uk to request support between 9am -5pm Monday to Friday. We are here for our learners at the end of the phone or can arrange Zoom meetings too.

If you would like to join First Rung or find out more information on our apprenticeships/courses please contact Beverley Woodhouse on 07805 980150.

We are in a constantly evolving situation. The latest information from the Government can be found at www.gov.uk please check it regularly.

We have had no confirmed Coronavirus cases at First Rung.
