ESB Statement on Covid-19 and Changes to placement hours and other pandemic-related allowances


ESB expects that any student or participant beginning a course from September 2022 will complete a full allocation of placement hours. Any other pandemic related allowances agreed with ESB will end at this time too (September 2022).

Students who have begun their course before September 2021 need to work within the Covid-19 response agreements given to individual institutions on placement hours.

We welcome discussion if you need any support relating to this. Please contact us
