How we are addressing issues associated with COVID-19 on every Adult Learning course.
- We have fully revised our risk assessments to adhere to the Government issued COVID 19 guidelines.
- We ask that upon arriving at the centre, the delegates remain in their cars until just prior to the course start time.(arrangements will be made for those not driving).
- We will welcome delegates in our outdoor classroom rather than inside the centre.
- The delegate’s temperature will be checked on arrival and anyone showing any symptoms which could be COVID-19 related, will be asked to go home. They will be given the option of receiving a course credit, a place on another course, making a donation or a full refund.
- All surfaces and any equipment will be fully sanitized prior to each course.
- Hand washing and the use of hand sanitizers will be required before entering the premises and throughout the day.
- There will be a maximum of 10 delegates on this course.
- We will maximise the amount of time spent outside whenever possible.
- The doors and windows will remain open during this course to ensure regular airflow.
- Classroom seating will be set up ensuring the 1 metre + distancing rules are met.
- The tutor will retain a 2 metre + distance from the delegates. In the cases where this is not possible, a face covering will be worn.
- Following government advice, it is suggested that delegates wear face coverings indoors.
- Delegates must bring their own packed lunch, water bottle/hot drink and cup. We are a nut-free centre, so please avoid food containing nuts.
- We request that delegates notify us if they develop symptoms up to 14 days after attending this course so that staff and other course delegates can be notified.
