Covid-19 training safety measures

Reviewed on 25th May 2021.

"Permitted venues, including exhibition and conference centres, can hire out function and event spaces for essential work, education and training purposes, where these events cannot reasonably be conducted from home." (UK government)

We are delighted that we are delivering face-to-face training again. We have learnt a lot working online during the lockdown periods and have found some benefits to it, so we will keep offering some of our courses online. As those of you who have attended one of our courses will know, the experience of being together in a room is irreplaceable and adds extra value, so face-to-face will always be our preference.

We want to reassure you that we have taken all measures needed to go back to face-to-face training in a safe way. We have completed a training risk assessment and all the venues we use are Covid-secure. We have produced guidance for trainers and trainees with due consideration to social distancing, hand hygiene, use of resources and face coverings. Everyone on a Family Links training is provided with their own set of resources, pens and visors if needed; all our trainers will be wearing visors.

Here is some recent feedback:

"Our facilitators made me feel completely safe in attending a course during COVID. Reinventing games with social distancing, a reward chart which avoided normal handling of objects (e.g pasta in a jar). A lovely relaxed atmosphere generally. It didn’t matter that we were not able to be nurtured with food or drink etc. Well done and thank you to Rowen and Arifa for making it such a positive, informative day". - Trainee, Parenting, Culture and Religion Training Course, Wales 2020

"You managed to create an atmosphere where I felt as though we all felt secure, safe and enabled". - Trainee, Parenting, Culture and Religion Training Course, Wales 2020

"Very motivating. Great to have time to reflect on managing difficult feelings after returning to school during COVID-19". - Trainee, Parenting, Culture and Religion Training Course, Wales 2020.
