The COVID-19 pandemic is causing increasing global concern and will impact the ELT industry significantly.
We have compiled information and resources that we hope will be useful for members, students and staff during this crisis.
This situation is ever-changing but we will endeavour to update the sector as things develop.
As ever, please refer to the official sources for information and treat with caution any information you see on social media.
Please note that by order of the Irish Government all ELT schools must remain closed to students until 19th April 2020
A range of business supports have been announced by the government.

Schools are also advised to open dialogue with banks, landlords, suppliers and other stakeholders.
This is a testing time for international students. We strongly encourage schools to have clear and open communication channels with their students. They may need support and are likely to be uncertain of where to find the correct information.
