Adult education/courses

Where does adult education come in the new rules? I'm currently doing a course on Saturdays. 7 adults & a teacher. It takes place in a room in a church. Presumably it has to move to online learning from this Thursday as we shouldn't be meeting in groups inside etc. But a few people have said it comes under the education rule.
I'd prefer not to meet but online lessons are very difficult (it's a sign language course)

Anyone have a view on this? I'm sort of looking for opinions really as it's not stated in the new rules.
My thoughts are that it needs to be moved to online but will the provider argue that it's education & therefore ok to meet?

My understanding is that they will stay open, especially if it's government funded / supported.

Interesting point although the classes I attend are not actually government funded. It's a difficult one. I'll wait & see what the teachers decide I think.

I attend a weekly Spanish class, 5 adults, 1 teacher and we're discussing doing Zoom lessons. I think it will be ideal for small classes.
