Covid-19

Hull Training and Adult Education would like to reassure all staff, learners, parents/carers and business partners that it is following the public health guidance issued by the Government and its agencies.

Exams Update

We are currently working with the Awarding Organisation to understand the next steps and will share updates with you as this becomes clearer.  We understand that you may be disappointed by not being able to sit your exams, however, please be assured that none of your hard work will be wasted and you will not be disadvantaged by not sitting them.  There may be a few smaller practical or apprenticeships exams and assessments that can continue safely in the Construction areas and we will be in touch with those learners and apprentices individually.

Attendance

It is very important that you attend your classes to ensure you don’t miss any learning – this may be by either attending classes physically or virtually.  If you are attending classes virtually and are experiencing any problems with technology please contact your tutor to discuss this.  Attendance to the google lessons will be logged and monitored in the same way as classroom attendance is.  Learners who do not sign in for the online sessions will be marked as absent and this will be followed up in accordance with our Attendance Policy.

Support with Resources and Technology

If you require support with access to resources or technology please contact your tutor as soon as possible to ensure continuity of your learning.  If you do not have access to a device at home please let us know so that we can support you. We are also able to provide paper-based resources to support you.

Remote Learning

We are working very hard to ensure that all learners have every opportunity to successful complete their qualifications. Following your new virtual timetable on the google drive will provide a structure to your day and give you as much continuity as possible in these difficult times. Attendance to the google lessons will be logged and monitored in the same way as classroom attendance is.  Learners who do not sign in for the online sessions will be marked as absent and this will be followed up in accordance with our Attendance Policy.

Resources, handouts and/or presentations for the lessons will be uploaded onto the google drive and, where pre-arranged, the tutor will also be online to teach the lesson.

Learners will be expected to submit work as normal, including assessment work, homework and mock exams in line with the course timetable.

Tutors will mark submitted work as usual and feedback to learners within an agreed timescale.

How to get the most out of remote learning

Create a space to work that is quiet and away from distractions;

Continue your usual routine as if you are were attending the Centre ie getting showered and dressed and eating breakfast;

Make sure you understand the targets are you working towards and the deadlines to achieve them;

If you are sharing your workspace with others in the household talk about how you can all study effectively together;

Remember to take small breaks throughout the day and have a schedule lunch break.  Ensure you get some fresh air during the day;

To avoid feeling isolating at home stay in regular contact with your tutor and other learners on your course.

Remaining safe in the Centres

If you are required to attend one of our Covid-secure Centres please ensure that you take responsibility for your safety and the safety of others. We continue to undertake a number of steps for your safety including:-

  • Keeping 2m social distance while moving around the buildings
  • One-way systems
  • Hand Sanitiser stations
  • Perspex screening
  • Classrooms arranged in rows for side to side teaching to avoid face to face contact
  • Staggered start and end times

COVID-19 Symptoms

If you are showing signs of COVID-19 (either a temperature, new cough or a loss of smell or taste), you must not come into the Centre and inform your tutor immediately. You must book a test as soon as possible and remain at home until your results come back.  If someone in your household is showing symptoms or has a positive test result, you must not come into the Centre, you must inform your tutor and self-isolate for 14 days. If you are self-isolating due to someone in your household showing symptoms, you should continue your studies remotely. Contact your tutor for support.

Public Transport

Where possible we could encourage you to drive, walk or cycle to our Centres.  Where this is not possible and you are required to take public transport please ensure you follow the government’s guidance for travelling safety. Hull Training and Adult Education may be able to support you with our cycle to learn scheme, which provides cycles.  If you would like to know more about this please speak to your tutor.

Café Facilities

The Endeavour Café remains open on reduced times.  You must wear a face mask in the Café and follow the one-way system.

 

Hull Training CoViD-19 update

Update: March 1, 2021

Covid testing

The government has informed us that as an Adult Education Training Provider that home testing kits will be available to our learners at the end of March. We are currently waiting for guidance on what this will look like.

We are preparing for adult learners to return to the classrooms from Monday 8 March. We would like to assure you that all our centres are Covid secure and that we have safe systems of work in place. You can find out more about what we are doing to keep you safe by visiting the Covid Information page on our website. https://www.hcctraining.ac.uk/covid-19

We will share the information about the home testing kits as soon as it becomes available.

Our main priority is that all learners and staff feel safe. If you want to talk to us about the measures we have in place or if you are keen to explore how we can support you in accessing a community test, then please do not hesitate to contact us at learneradvice@hullcc.gov.uk

Update: January 6, 2021

Welcoming you back safely to Hull Training and Adult Education

Hull Training and Adult Education is open for business! The second lockdown is now here, and unlike the first lockdown we are able to remain open for learning. We have tried to balance our programme so that we can offer a range of face to face and online courses. This helps us to maintain bubbles and reduces the number of learners and staff that we have on site. These measures go hand in hand with our other safe systems that we have in place. It’s really important to us that our learners feel safe and that we are doing everything we can to reduce risk.

We have produced a short video on our Health and Safety systems. It well worth watching if you haven’t seen it yet. You can find it at the top of this page.

If you are coming into the centre for a class, please make sure that you wear a face covering when in any communal parts of the building. You will be able to remove this once you are in the classroom. Please also remember to wash your hands on arrival and maintain two metres social distancing at all times. We have a plentiful supply of masks, sanitiser and other protective equipment should you need it. Your tutor will talk to you about our safe systems and answer any questions that you might have. You can also speak to any member of our learning support and safeguarding team if you have any concerns about your health and wellbeing. Call us on 01482 615 349 or email learneradvice@hullcc.gov.uk .

We look forward to see you soon – either in person or online!

Staying Covid-19 Secure

We have been working hard over the last few weeks and we are pleased to confirm that we have complied with the government’s guidance on managing the risk of Covid-19. This means we are able to welcome back a small number of staff and learners to the Endeavour Learning and Skills Centre from today.

It is important to us that we keep everyone safe and so in the first instance will only be offering face to face lessons for those who need to complete qualifications.

Our next steps are to ensure that our remaining sites meet government guidance. Our Engineering and Business Centres are currently finalising their systems and hope to be compliant shortly.

For more information about our phased return, please call us on 01482 615 349 or email learneradvice@hullcc.gov.uk
