Feedback from the first webinar Covid-19 Update and the Future

‘The webinar had a big impact on me. I shared the information with friends, family and colleagues and it gave me a much better understanding of the reality of the situation. It has made me feel personally safer and made me realise the importance of safe space and hand washing in as much as it reinforced that they are our only weapons against the virus.’

Alison, PGCE Secondary RE 2010, University of Exeter Alumni.
