How will distancing rules be followed during a practical classroom delivery?
See also “additional information” tab above. We are responsibly running this public classroom course with strict COVID secure training methods in place. We have worked hard to make sure you feel comfortable and enjoy the course despite social distancing and new non-contact ways to teach.
Whilst physical distancing rules remain in place, our f2f classroom courses are limited to a maximum of 12We have supersized our venues, which have ground floor windows and ample break out space. The venue for this course is not currently used by the public, and we have a QR code for track and trace.
We are now well versed in adapting the training to meet our strict risk assessment. (Masks are to be worn in the kitchen and corridor areas).
Group exercises are completed in separate rooms followed by feedback safely in the main hall.
What to expect and how to prepare for your classroom training.
On arrival, you will be given a debrief. Hand sanitiser, training props, individual manikins, and everything you need for the course is provided. Come with an open mind and burning questions.
Our instructors are experienced in creating and facilitating a non-judgemental and entertaining learning environment. We encourage participants to take away this attitude into their own lives following the training. All learners are made to feel safe and included, and we often see the group bond as a result.
What do I need to bring?
Please bring some photo ID to day 2, as is required in order to validate this award.
You may wish to bring a notebook for any additional notes. Covid-19 secure refreshments are complementary throughout the training, but we do ask you to bring your own favourite mug, and your lunch. There is ample fridge space and Budgens 1-mile, fast food outlets and supermarkets 2.5 miles. We have everything else covered.
We are also fully aware of the anxiety that many students have over coming into a public space. There is a lot to think about which we have already thought about. You are in safe hands.
Your instructor will send you an e mail a couple of days prior to the classroom training, so that you have their contact details should you be running late, or have additional accessibility requirements.
This course can also be delivered on site at a reduced group fee (subject to our risk assessment)
