We want to run face-to-face workshops, but we don’t know how COVID will affect the training next year.
In the risk section of the application form, you will need to consider how your project might be affected by possible future COVID restrictions. Consider if the workshops can be taught to smaller groups over a longer period, can a website be developed instead or be taught through videos, or a combination of methods.
