Important update

Dear Customers, Colleagues, and Partners,

We felt the time was right to update you on what is happening here at Qualitrain. We appreciate that you will be inundated with COVID-19 updates, therefore we’ll try & keep it brief, and to the point for you.

We are supporting learners across England where they or their employers are able to continue their learning. We are happy to speak to any learners who are not currently in training to help them get back into their apprenticeship.

What happens in the future?

We fully appreciate that this may not be the right time to be thinking long term however, we have taken some steps to ensure we can get back to normality as soon as possible, which are:

  • Learners who can carry on will continue via remote online learning
  • Customers who cannot continue at this time will be brought back onto their programme when you are ready. We will work hard to ensure that we will be ready to go within 2-days

Finally, Qualitrain would like to say thank you for support and remember to take care of yourself and your family and colleagues.
