COVID-19 (Corona Virus) Statement
In regards to the ongoing global outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Olive Training would like to issue guidance to students, staff and clients to aid in preventing the further spread of the virus.
Due to the Government decision to close the UK including Education and Close Contact Services in a National Lockdown due to a spike in the Corona Virus Outbreak we no longer remain open for practical parts of our courses therefore we are temporarily closing to all students, clients and visitors attending our centres. Although we are still working from home on the admin side of things and monitoring theory training through our online classroom.
This means that we have again initiated a “Break in Learning for practical elements of their courses” for all students on a study programme with us. As soon as the Government has agreed that it is safe to reopen then we will once again be trading as normal and will be making it a priority to ensure that all students complete their studies in a timely manner.
Lockdown constraints mean that unfortunately some students have their practical training cancelled, we do however make it our priority to re-book dates as soon as reasonably practical. In re-opening we take into consideration our Insurance Company and Awarding Bodies guidelines and our team here have undergone extensive Infection Control training to ensure that our centre is hygienic and safe to work in.
We however delivery theory, study packages including examinations and assignments online in preparation for the practical side of your course which will be carried out once the lockdown is lifted. So we are pleased to enrol new learners at any stage of lockdown and help them achieve their study goals. All existing students will be offered a online tutorial and monitored through lockdown to ensure that they stay on track.
We would like to thank you for your understanding in these unprecedented times.
If you have any concerns or queries about your programme of study please contact as
