National Lockdown 5th November – 2nd December 2020

Lockdown restrictions do not affect attending or enrolling on courses at BAEC. Education settings remain open, so BAEC centres remain open as usual.

Practical classes such as Art and Crafts, Clothes Making, Stained Glass and Upholstery continue on site and you should attend as normal.

London Walks will not take place outdoors after the 5th November. Your tutor will contact you with further information.

Some English and maths, ESOL and MFL classes/sessions will be delivered online, in agreement with each group.  Your tutor will contact you with more information.

You can contact us by phone on 02086597976 or 01689 822886, or email 

We continue to implement our social distancing and hygiene measures, and we carefully monitor how effective these are in keeping our students and staff safe. See Student Feedback for a summary of our findings.

NHS Test and Trace

The government have released the NHS Test and Trace app on the Apple Store and Google Play.
The app is a vital part of the overall NHS Test and Trace service and it is an important new tool to control the spread of the virus.
When you come in the Kentwood and Poverest centres, you will see a poster with a QR code at the entrance.
This allows people with the app to “check themselves in” to the site by scanning the QR code via the app on their smartphone.
Please note that using the app and scanning yourselves in, is completely voluntary and no-one is obliged to use it.
You can find out how the app works, and further information on Test and Trace by clicking on the link below
