Health & Safety Training

The health and safety team run a regular training programme to help ensure you have the key health & safety skills in school. A list of upcoming training opportunities is set out below.

Please note, due to ongoing coronavirus considerations/controls, we may have to cancel/reschedule training sessions at short notice; please bear with us, we aim to deliver a full training programme, but some issues are outside our control. 

Could you also note that in order to stay Covid-19 secure, we cannot currently provide drinks or refreshments for our face-to-face courses and delegates are advised to make their own arrangements? We will re-start providing refreshments when it is safe to do so. 

For further details, to make bookings, or to enquire about other health & safety courses or any health & safety issue, please contact the health & safety team.
