Message from our Chief Executive:

Dear customers,

Following this week’s new lockdown measures by the government we have made a few changes to our delivery.

Although the government headlines were all schools, colleges and universities will close, this isn’t the full picture. Unlike GCSEs and A levels, vocational exams haven’t been cancelled and should continue as planned. This is as stated on the DFE website. There are still a few “grey areas” on which we are seeking further clarification.

Our apprenticeship programmes will continue to be delivered via our remote video classroom software and only apprentices preparing for their end point assessments (EPA) will be invited to attend the academy. All dates for learning will remain the same but via video and you should not attend the physical Academy unless invited to do so.

At the time of writing, the IMI have confirmed their EPAs will continue but C&G have today paused face to face assessment until further confirmation from Ofqual.

Our team will be in touch, but if you have any questions on this please contact your account manager or contact reception on 01179533001

We recognise that our partners, who are still operating garage workshops, will still need to have fully trained and competent staff to ensure vehicles are tested and checked to the highest standards. We will, therefore, continue to support you with our short course delivery, especially for those requiring MOT and VDA certification. However, the number of short course dates will be scaled back to reflect the current situation, so please book ASAP using our website. https://sandbacademy.arlo.co/w/

My thanks to you for supporting us and our brilliant team here at S&B, who are working extremely hard to continue to support your learning and keep you safe at this challenging time.

Keep safe and a Happy New Year to you all.

Best wishes,


Phil Marsh, CEO of S&B Automotive Academy
