In light of the continuing and developing situation with Covid-19 (Coronavirus) in the UK, and having considered the available information and advice from the Government and health authorities, we have taken the decision to cancel on-site and external visits until the end of April. In addition, for the protection of our staff, school staff and students, we will not be undertaking any activities in schools/colleges until the end of April. This will be continuously reviewed and we will update you where necessary.

We still want to support schools and learners during this challenging time and will be communicating with our school and college contacts to support them with resources for learners during their time studying at home.

The DANCOP team are working remotely in line with social distancing measures but are still contactable on our usual email addresses. If you need to speak to our Derby based teams on the phone (including our Derby Hub, Central Team and Senior Management Team) you can call our usual phone numbers starting with 01332. If you need to speak to our Nottingham or Mansfield based hubs please email your usual contact and they will let you know the best number to call them on.


These are unprecedented times and we have reached this decision after the most careful consideration and with the health and wellbeing of all in mind.

If you have any questions or would like any information about the resources we will be providing, please speak to your project officer or email
