Advice for staff and students on the outbreak of Covid-19
Please refer regularly to this page for information about the Covid-19 and our response. We will update this page with more information as it becomes available.
A message from our CEO, Rem Conway:
"During these uncertain times it is important for us as an organisation to take the necessary measures to ensure our students, staff and customers are safe. With a heavy heart, we have decided to suspend all engagements that require face to face interaction. This has been done to ensure the health and wellbeing of the community is protected; taking into account the advice we have been given.
All courses have been reviewed carefully and customers have been refunded accordingly. On Monday 4th May 2020 we will be launching our online platform ONForm, giving our customers access to weekly classes, workshops and courses all online using Zoom. Details about ONForm can be found on our home page, we recommend subscribing for updates to be alerted about our launch. We understand finances are unstable at the moment, particularly for freelancers, therefore we have introduced affordable subscriptions for the use of ONForm to aid everyone at this particular time.
To all our clients waiting to hear back from submissions or waiting to start contracts, as you can appreciate most companies are suspending production due to closures of theatres or direction from the government. We will contact you individually to update you with any information and we are in communication with production teams to get frequent updates; so we will update you accordingly.
Events & Projects:
As requested by the government all Conway events and projects have been suspended until further notice, we will be launching a sign up system soon that enable customers to be the first to sign up to our events. Keep checking our website for updates.
Conway In Education:
With regret, we have decided to pause all engagement with schools and centres until further notice. Once we have more certainty we will get in touch with each CIE partner and organise the rescheduling of workshops, on-to-ones and meetings.
We would like to thank you for your understanding in these unprecedented times, in the meantime please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries. However please understand that our staff are under huge pressure at the moment and so response times may be longer than usual.
We would also like to celebrate our key workers and the NHS for their superb commitment and sacrifice at this unprecedented time. This is truly an unsettling time and so we send our love and best wishes to you all.
