We Are Here to Help: Online Education at the Time of Covid-19

We know that many of you are working at home with kids to educate so we've pulled together a list with some resources that are available at the moment - for your kids and for you as well (if, for example, you want to refresh your geography or learn a new instrument... then why not?).

Many celebrities have stepped in to offer free lessons on their social channels too.

We hope this is useful and we will do our best to keep it updated with new regular resources. 👇

Drop us an email if you know about more classes/events to add.
