LATEST UPDATE: 09.11.2020

Following the re-opening of Covid-secure training services this summer and training organisations being allowed to operate in the current national lockdown, we are confident we will be allowed to run most - if not all - our training courses in 2021. As a result, we have made the decision to offer a full programme of courses for next year, starting in February 2021. 

The above assumes that government guidance for training providers does not change. Our team has been working hard over the past few months to adapt our training and develop policies and procedures that allow us to safely reopen our training venue. We are a Covid-secure venue and have been implementing a number of additional safety measures, including training bubbles, social distancing and outdoors-only training. The full list of additional safety measures we're taking is available in our Covid-19 policy, per below.

Social distancing & Training bubbles

We are following social distancing rules and the latest government guidance for training providers (as published on 3rd November 2020). 

In practice this means that we are implementing a number of key changes to the way in which our training usually run. This includes (but is not limited to) the following:

  • Contact-free registration
  • Ongoing use of hand-sanitizing gel throughout the day
  • Enhanced cleaning procedures throughout the day
  • Much smaller training bubbles
  • Consistent training bubbles throughout the course
  • Time almost exclusively spent outside (except for toilet use)
  • Strict social distancing measures throughout the day
  • Adapted training activities to avoid contact and sharing of resources
  • Compulsory collection of NHS Test and Trace data, kept for 21 days
