From education to employment

Apprenticeship Training in Lockdown – engage, deliver, support…

Apprenticeship Training at Steve Willis Training Centres

Apprenticeship Training at Steve Willis Training Centres has moved back to the lockdown delivery model that we developed last year.

Our aim is once again to deliver high quality training while engaging and supporting our learners through this challenging period.

What this means in practice is that all theory-based learning has moved online, while essential practical training and exams will still be carried out in person at our training centres.

While we know this worked well in the spring, we are always looking for ways to improve. We’ve acted on the feedback we received from Lockdown 1, and are asking learners and employers to keep telling us how we’re doing this time round. We’ll also be carrying out regular observations of all online classes, and reviewing the risk assessments for any face to face practical training and assessment.

We know that online learning is not possible for everyone, so we’ll also look at the options for in person training on an individual case by case basis if needed. We’re supporting all our learners, checking in with regular phone calls and making sure we identify any issues as soon as they arise.

This is all part of our commitment to our apprentices and their employers. We are all working together to stay safe and keep our industry moving.
