Covid-19 UPDATE 24th March 2020

Last night’s Prime Ministerial Address set out a new level of mitigation aimed at addressing the rampant spread of the Covid-19 virus. We accept the responsibility placed on us by the Prime Minister and will do our bit to protect our staff, customers, members of the public and the NHS

With immediate effect, we will be closing our centre to external clients and postponing training for the next three weeks, until the Government review the current guidance and update their advice. We will of course keep you updated as things progress.

We understand that this will impact a number of our clients, partners and learners, but we would like to remind you that both Network Rail (and Sentinel) and the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) are extending all expiring tickets/ competencies whilst we navigate these difficult and unprecedented times.

Those that need to work, and can do so safely, will be able to under these new rules. You can find out more from each respective website:
