A Statement from our CEO Martin Kelly

 

Hello everybody, well what a strange 12 months we have had.

 

I am more hopeful now than I have ever been that not only can we re-open, we can stay open, and hopefully national lockdowns will be a thing of the past.

 

Thar said, Covid-19 is probably something we are going to have to learn how to live with so we must remain extremely careful how we do things.

 

We plan on reopening our Covid-19 secure training room to a maximum of 4 learners in April 2021.

 

Visitors will be required to wear a mask, some of our staff are in the high-risk group for Covid-19 so even if you are exempt from wearing a mask, we would either ask you to wear one for the time you are with us or to arrange for us to support you either over the phone or through appointments carried out online.

 

There will be a one-way system when walking through our training room to ensure people can remain 2m apart and we will have some new furniture that will be easy to clean and sterilise after it has been used.

 

Following the first lockdown, you may remember we had to lose some of our training sessions due to the reduced capacity of our training room.  This time when we re-open we will have expanded the number of courses and qualifications we are able to provide from April 2021.

 

We are providing more Health & Safety Courses both in the construction industry and in general places of work.

 

In addition, we will also be providing training in Health & Social Care, which fits in perfectly with our organisation as many people with disabilities use health and social care services.

 

These courses will be available online, with tutor support either face-to-face in our training room, online using Zoom, via email or via phone/text.

 

We intend to add further training and qualifications in: Business & Leadership, Child Care and Early Years and Hospitality from September 2021.

 

As you can see these are exciting times for us (and potentially for you), but this all relies on us remaining careful and looking out for each other, we will certainly be looking out for you.

 

As ever, Best Wishes & Stay Well
