Coronavirus (Covid-19) update for AAT students, training providers, members and employers

Last updated 4 January 2022

Updates in relation to Covid-19 will be announced on this page, through AAT social media, and through your regular emails.

AAT assessments and Covid-19 restrictions

On 25 February the government confirmed that assessments should continue to take place, subject to Public Health England guidance.

As such, all of AAT’s assessments will continue to be available as usual, providing they can be delivered in line with relevant government regulations and restrictions. 

Social distancing guidance for running assessments

Given the relaxation of Covid-19 rules in England, we've taken the decision to withdraw the social distancing guidance that was previously published. However, assessment centres should continue to follow the guidance of the countries that they operate in. AAT may reintroduce the guidance if required.

Finding an assessment venue

If you need to find an assessment venue use our dedicated service.

Remote invigilation

We've made some of our assessments available to sit remotely where appropriate.

Read our dedicated page on remote invigilation.
