All at Next Level and Reflections Training Academy have been saddened by the news of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and we join the whole country in sending our deepest condolences to her family.

We will be following government guidance regarding the period of national mourning.

The Department for Education has advised that schools and education settings should remain open during the period of national mourning and we are on hand to support learners and employers with anything they need. Please do get in touch with your relevant academy if you need to.

It has been announced that the day of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II funeral, Monday 19 September 2022, will now be a public (bank) holiday.

Therefore, the training academy will be closed on this day.

We will continue to give all learners the time to reflect about the death of Queen Elizabeth.

We understand that, for some, the current national focus may trigger different emotions and feelings around loss and death.

It is important to talk, or share with your tutor or Safeguarding lead should you be feeling concerned or worried about anything connected to this event.
