Training providers are being asked to provide training, advice and support to learners virtually where possible. Learners should contact their learning providers for more information.
We are encouraging learning providers to support learners to continue their learning, even in self-isolation, where it is possible to do so.
Learning providers have been asked to use available technologies (for example Skype and Microsoft Teams) to work with learners on a virtual basis; where it is possible to do so. Individual providers will be able to let people know what specific plans are in place for this.
Providers should make every effort to carry out reviews using virtual methods. Training providers should keep records of virtual contact and retain relevant evidence (for example emails) from learners and employers.
