Updated January 14: GOOD NEWS! It will be officially announced at tonight’s press conference that educational services can organize in-person classes again. This means that the in-person courses starting in the coming weeks will all be held as planned. One of the new restrictions is that you have to be either masked OR 1.5m apart. Both are possible at our locations. As communication is not just the words we say but also facial expressions and reading lips to a certain extent we would advice to be 1.5m apart. Our teacher will be in front of the class without a mask.
The classrooms that we use for our in-person Evening Courses are originally for 25 students and more so it is very possible to adhere to some distancing during the classes.
Updated December 12: As Koentact offers an educational service that falls under general formative education NO QR-code is required at this moment. We are also able to continue in-person classes after 17.00. However, as we use locations that fall under the facemask guidelines it is necessary to have a facemask to enter our teaching locations. We’ll make sure that at each location some disposal facemasks are available but we ask our students to please bring their own.
As of September 2021, we will offer both in-person courses and online courses. All parts of the in-person course are offline and all parts of the online courses are online.
Starting in September we will use our physical teaching location for all our Group Courses and our Open Days. We are confident that at that time we can use our classrooms again (with certain restrictions if still necessary).
Also Online Courses
The situation over the past year has made clear to us that an Online Classroom Course can offer a worthy alternative to our previous standard use of the physical classroom. Given that you can follow the course without actually being in Amsterdam and it is possible to record (part of) the class we believe the online classes could be an interesting option for those who are located outside of Amsterdam or need to travel frequently. Of course, this could also be an interesting option for those who still have some Covid-19 hesitancies during the upcoming months.
We now offer an Online Evening Course in which we use Zoom to create a worthy alternative classroom environment. We are convinced this program offers an excellent alternative to our in-person lessons for those not located (near) Amsterdam or who prefer the flexibility of the online course.
We organize online workshops instead of Field Trips to offer some extra practice and introduce interesting new topics.
