Sonia King
Pre Apprentice Training Coordinator

Following recent advice from the Department of Education, we are implementing plans to allow staff and some students back to the centre. A number of changes have been made to the layout and functionality of the building to ensure compliance with social distancing and other health and safety requirements, which includes sectioning off of work spaces and designated entrance and exit routes. Some students have begun to return to the centre, in small groups and strictly on an appointment basis. Visitors to the centre are also by appointment only and everyone entering the building will have access to sanitiser gel and gloves, and are ask to agree to and observe specific COVID19 centre rules, which are given them upon entering the building. We have contacted all employers and students to keep them up to date with our plans.

UPDATE – 19th March 2020

In light of recent announcements, our training centre will close to all students tomorrow (Friday 20th March) at 1600. This is for an indefinite period.

We are making provision to ensure learning shall continue where possible, and all students and employers have been contacted and briefed accordingly.

We will continue to monitor the news and await further guidance from Education & Skills Funding Agency and update this site accordingly should further action be required.
