Training

Eastwood Park is investing in a regime of lateral flow testing to enable practical training to resume at its training centre later this month. All visitors attending the centre – including learners, trainers, contractors and staff – will undergo regular testing.

In January our classroom-based training was temporarily suspended in support of the national lockdown. Although a number of training companies continued at that time, we felt it was the most responsible action to take to support the NHS and the safety of all.

There is still a long road ahead, however with the vaccination programme roll-out and the introduction of lateral flow testing in addition to continued COVID-secure measures, we are carefully resuming practical training delivery for those customers who need this training now.

Lyndsay Corbett, Training Manager explained:

“We are conscious many customers need the support of our practical training. Although we have continued to deliver what we can through onsites and online delivery, this only resolves some training issues and does not replace the opportunity and necessity of teaching practical, hands on skills. With even stricter control measures in place, we feel everything we can do has been introduced to make it as safe as possible for everyone.”

In order to open, primarily, we will be seeking evidence of either a negative COVID test (taken within 48 hours of arrival) or all visitors will be asked to undertake a lateral flow test on arrival. These measures apply to everyone attending site and is in addition to all observing the normal safeguarding measures – Face, Hands, Space; face coverings, course bubbles, fogging of all accommodation etc.

Anyone with any queries should contact Lyndsay Corbett, Training Manger on +44 (01454) 262777.
