Face-to-Face Training

Face-to-Face Training

We are mindful of the need to remain vigilant around COVID-19 transmission and wish to ensure delegates and facilitators are as safe as possible, while we deliver effective and enjoyable learning experiences.

We will work closely with you to ensure everyone involved is comfortable with the plans and tailor the sessions to best fit the environment and your needs.

With the COVID-19 government guidelines continuing to shift, we will be regularly reviewing these steps and update you with any changes as and when they happen. Please visit the UK government website for the most up to date guidelines.

What we are doing

Prior to any training sessions, the First Ascent team will ensure:

  • All facilitators have completed a COVID-19 awareness and prevention training to ensure they are prepared to deliver a safe and successful session
  • Facilitators are briefed on any considerations specific to the client, delegates, session or venue

We will work closely with venues to make sure they have the following facilities available and processes in place:

  • Handwashing and/or sanitising stations throughout the venue for delegates to use on arrival and during the day
  • Meeting rooms are cleaned thoroughly between users and frequent touch points (such as door handles, surfaces and toilets) are continuously cleaned throughout the day
  • Plans and clear signage for social distancing in all parts of the premises, not just where the session is being conducted but also entrances and exits, breakout rooms, dining areas etc.
  • Optimised ventilation to provide a fresh air supply to all areas of the venue, particularly in the training room
  • Protocols for the safe provision of food and refreshments if required

What we expect you to do

Our aim is to prevent the attendance of anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19, is symptomatic, has recently been symptomatic or been in close contact with someone who has tested positive or is symptomatic.

To reduce the risk of potential transmission of COVID-19 during sessions, we ask that you:

  • Cough and/or sneeze in the crook of your arm or a tissue and dispose of it immediately
  • Notify the facilitator immediately if you do not feel well or develop any COVID-19 symptoms

If you experience symptoms or test positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of attending a training session, please let us know as soon as possible. This will enable us to notify the other delegates and facilitators present so that they can take precautionary steps to stop further transmission.

If you have any questions about these steps or guidelines, please don't hesitate to email our Operations Manager
