Whether it’s the ability to have total focus on your training without distractions or you’re looking forward to being able to network with other professionals again, we know for many of our learners, nothing beats face-to-face learning. That’s why we are delighted our classrooms are now open in England and we can’t wait to welcome you back!
We understand that many of you are eager to return to classroom training. As schools have reopened and lockdown has eased, we’ve reintroduced a selection of our most popular classroom courses. (Please note, courses are subject to minimum delegate numbers in order to run.)
We are committed to providing the same high-quality learning experience for you while providing peace of mind that we have the necessary and proportionate protocols in place to create a safe learning environment.
Here’s a quick overview of the steps we have taken in order to welcome you back to our training centres.
Before we opened
A Covid-19 risk assessment of training space and buildings has been carried out by our independent health and safety consultant (available on request in advance and available to inspect at our buildings) and we have carried out a full disinfectant clean of our venues using recommended COSHH chemicals for Covid-19.
We have created additional storage for bicycles and scooters to help you reduce dependency on public transport.
We’ve put up Covid-19 safety and awareness signage throughout each venue, highlighting stair access routes, and installed sanitiser stations in all receptions, breakout spaces and classrooms.
We have staggered start times for courses to reduce morning pinch points.
On training days
On arrival at the building entrance, you will be welcomed by QA staff who can give directional support and advice on safety protocols.
We are reducing the touchpoints at the QA reception desk – you will only be asked to announce your name as registration will be contactless.
A hospitality bag with biscuits, fruit, tissues, and hand sanitiser will be offered to all learners and can be replenished throughout the day. Face coverings are available at all receptions for those learners that feel more comfortable continuing to wear these within the venues.
All desks, chairs and equipment will be sanitised clean before the start of each course. Classrooms and breakout areas will be deep cleaned at the end of each day of the course.
All air conditioning will be put onto maximum flow to encourage the circulation of fresh air.
For any further questions on the day, please visit the QA reception desk, or email QA-VenueEnquiries@QA.com.
