How we are making our training safe?
We have implementing the following measures to keep delegates and our trainers safe:

  • If a delegate has any of the symptoms, tests positive for, or needs to self-isolate due to COVID-19 symptoms (e.g. new persistent cough, high temperature, loss or change to sense of smell or taste) they must not attend training. We will provide a free transfer to a future course.
  • We will implement social distancing measures between everyone at all times during the course and request the same of delegates during breaks. To do this we have reduced class sizes and/or increased room sizes dependent on training venue.
  • There will be hand sanitisation and tissues available.
  • We have consulted with training venue providers to ensure Covid secure work practices are in place, including regular handwashing and cleaning protocols.
  • We have altered our training strategies to ensure that trainers and delegates do not touch and remain socially distanced during learning activity sessions.
  • Face-coverings and gloves will not be provided but delegates are welcome to wear their own should they wish.

We will be adhering to the advice of Public Health England and the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).

Training at your premises

We will continue to do our best to provide onsite training at your premises, as long as we have the availability to do so, and you are able to provide the required social distancing and infection control measures at your site.
