Working during the pandemic

How we're working to ensure the safety of our learners, staff and the North Wales community.

At North Wales Training safety and wellbeing is our top priority. Since the first lockdown we’ve implemented a suite of measures that are enabling us to continue to deliver to those we serve while maximising the safety of everyone involved, including our staff. This includes switching to blended working, and adapting some of our courses for remote delivery. We continue to monitor the outbreak closely and to take all necessary precautions in line with the guidance from the Welsh Government, available here.

Visiting our Centres

Due to the current level alert, our training centres are now back open but are being operated with minimal staff, and minimal students visiting out centres. Please only visit if you have a pre agreed appointment with us or your tutor has asked you to attend. If unsure if you can visit or not, please get in touch and speak to us before you travel. We'll let you know soon as things change.

Our learners and staff have to wear face covering when in the building. If you cannot wear a face covering due to a medical condition, please wear a exemption card lanyard, you are required to wear it at all times in our building.

Hand sanitising stations are available through out our buildings, and we have one-way systems in place at our centres.

Current service arrangements

We’ve made the following arrangements which apply across all our programmes. Our team will provide more detailed information specific to any course or programme you’re interested in or signed up to whether you’re a learner or employer. We are regularly reviewing these and will update you on any changes as they arise.

Enrolment and/or sign-up

All done remotely over the phone and online. The Welsh Government accepts digital sign-up for apprenticeships. Electronic signatures can be requested electronically via our Smart Assessor e-portal, where needed.

Induction

All the information and documents you need will be provided by email or via our Smart Assessor e-portal if you’re an apprentice.

Training and teaching

We have mixture of blended learning as training and teaching is both online and face-to-face. Our leaners have reported it works just as well. Alternative arrangements are in place for courses and apprenticeships that are practical in nature. Please speak to us if you have any questions about this.

Assessments

Any time our leaners need to provide evidence, such as for assessments, we’re collecting this both face-to-face and remotely using digital technology such as Zoom. As for practical evidence your tutor/assessor will discuss the alternative arrangements that have been agreed with the applicable awarding body for how this is, or will, be collected.

Ongoing support

Our team are committed to giving you all the support you need to complete any learning journey you’ve embarked on including guidance on how to take part in remote sessions and help to access IT should you need this.

Finally…

It’s our mission to keep you safe and not let Covid-19 detract from your experience of benefiting from our services at North Wales Training. As ever please contact our friendly team if you have further questions or concerns. Many thanks and stay safe!
