Working from home can be a good opportunity to learn some new skills that you don't normally have time for. But it can also be hard, especially if you are used to being out a lot. Here is a great collection of information and resources to help us all get set up for some great learning from home. Just click to download the document. Below that are lots of resources for you to use. Please let your SJL know if you need support with anything. We will add new things each week and will also be posting on Twitter and Instagram from Monday 30th March @SouthQuayEd
