We are delighted that it has now been confirmed that we can continue to support all of our learners across the South Coast and work with employers to provide online home-training.
Assessors and tutors are still contactable via phone, email and Zoom meetings and can even remote in to those who are not on Furlough to conduct virtual observations.

With so much amazing technology available it is important that we really embrace it and keep all forms of training on track.”
