CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE
The health, safety and wellbeing of students and colleagues is the top priority for The Smallpeice Trust following the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The Trust is closely monitoring the current situation with present government advice being ‘business as usual’. In light of this, and in order for students to continue to benefit from our events, we are taking precautionary measures to ensure that all The Smallpeice Trust events (Arkwright Engineering Scholarships, Residential Courses and STEM Days) can still go ahead where appropriate.
We recognise this is an evolving situation, however, and will be continuing to follow the latest advice from the Department for Education and Public Health England and acting accordingly. Whilst the scheduled events will continue as planned, we do suggest that students do not book travel tickets too far in advance of the event they are attending. We will be keeping parents, students, schools and our corporate partners updated with developments where necessary.
