In light of the Government’s advice on social distancing, the MU recommends that all face-to-face teaching should stop and be replaced by online teaching where possible.
Teachers moving to online lessons might find it useful to update their teaching contracts to reflect this new way of working. We’ve now added a second online teaching contract, to use with learners who are over 18 years old.
MU National Organiser for Education and Training, Diane Widdison, explained:
“Online teaching has given our members who teach a chance to carry on delivering lessons to their pupils during this challenging time. It has also given some the opportunity to explore different ways of working and reaching new students.
This contract is for online learning for adult students, either for new or existing students, as we always encourage members to have a contract in place for all their teaching.”
You can both contracts, along with our online teaching advice, by visiting our coronavirus advice page on online teaching.
