Measures related to Corona/Covid-19

Due to the worldwide Corona outbreak Helicon cancelled all internships abroad until 9 november. This measure is to prevent further spread of the coronavirus. We will continue to follow the governments guidelines.

Nearly all our students who were abroad for an internschip returned to the Netherlands. A few stayed abroad on their own responsibility. Because we anticipate that the worldwide situation will remain uncertain the coming months, we decided to postpone the possible start of new internships abroad until 9 november.

All Helicon schools have switched to remote online teaching activities from Monday 16 March 2020. This means that students will follow their lessons online from their home, via laptop, computer, tablet or mobile phone, as far as possible. Regarding the necessary work experience for their vocational education we propose alternative exercises. If it is possible in the educational programme, a student may postpone the internship abroad until next year. Nevertheless Helicon will follow the national and international governmental guidelines.
