COVID 19 Safety Measures

When you visit Learn and Train it may feel a little different from before, but our team will ensure that you have a safe experience whilst learning with us.  In line with Government guidelines everyone attending courses with us will need to ensure they comply fully with all Government and school COVID 19 procedures and policies.

All visitors must sanitise their hands when they come into the building via the Main Reception. Additional hand sanitiser stations are located around the school and in classrooms.  At the Main Reception we have installed plastic screens to protect you and our staff.

If a confirmed case of Coronavirus (COVID-19) is identified, we will be in contact with you. Face coverings/masks supplied by you are required by everyone entering and moving around the School (unless you are exempt from wearing one) in common areas such as corridors and toilets. Please keep to the left whilst walking along the corridors.

We will be running classes with smaller numbers to manage social distancing. Hand sanitiser will be available to use in the classrooms. Disinfectant wipes will be available in each classroom to wipe down desks before and after use.  Please leave promptly after the course has finished.

If you or a member of your household are displaying any flu-like symptoms or have tested positive for coronavirus (COVID19) in the last 10 days, please do not attend any courses. If you become unwell after attending any course, please contact us immediately to let us know by emailing learnandtrain@cap.education or call on 01223 712340.
