The government is making sure that people and businesses have access to the support they need as quickly as possible. The English language teaching sector can apply for additional support through the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) where they meet the criteria. On 12 May, the Government announced that the CJRS will continue to the end of October. The Chancellor has been clear that getting people back to work will be introduced in a measured way, avoiding a cliff edge.
