NEWS Release September 8, 2020:

All Campuses Now Open to Students

On September 8 , 2020, the Tamwood Language Centres and Tamwood Careers campuses in Toronto and Whistler re-opened for in-school delivery to students.  Vancouver has been open and offering in-school classes since July.

Smaller classes are being offered entirely in class with the option to join remotely for students who are off-shore or not comfortable coming to school. Students in larger classes are taking part in a hybrid delivery model with 50% of their classes in-school and 50% live online. Students who are off-shore or not comfortable coming to school have the option to join the classes remotely.

Safety Policies and Protocols at all Campuses

Tamwood Careers and Tamwood Language Centres will continue to follow the Canadian and provincial government and public health guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our students, teachers and staff.  This includes:

  1. Masks are required in all common spaces.
  2. All staff, students and visitors have their temperature taken and recorded daily and anyone registering a fever or showing any symptoms of being ill will be required to go home and study/work from home until they are cleared for return to the school.
  3. Enhanced cleaning protocols have been put in place with frequent cleaning of high touch surfaces.
  4. Hand sanitizer dispensers have been installed in all rooms and good hand hygiene is taught and stressed at the orientation for new students and promoted through signs posted in the schools.
  5. Social distancing is now mandatory in all spaces including classrooms (maximum class size is now 8), elevators, common areas and hallways.

Quarantine Requirements for New International Students

Tamwood students arrival from overseas are required to compete a 14 day quarantine / self-isolation on arrival.  Tamwood has a detailed Quarantine plan that has been vetted and endorsed by an infectious disease specialist.    Tamwood makes arrangements for the safe transport and accommodation for students in quarantine and checks-in with students on a daily basis while in quarantine. Students are able to start their classes online and participate in online student activities during this 14 day quarantine.
