Keeping your learners safe

The week has arrived that you have been carefully preparing for to ensure your learners can return safely to the classroom. Aside from personal protective equipment and social distancing where necessary, you as teachers have the best tool to keep them safe…education.

Adding lessons on Infection Control and Prevention to curriculums will not only ensure learners know how to protect themselves and others, but it will also reassure them that it’s safe to return to public spaces and reduce any anxiety that they may be feeling towards returning to the classroom.

At Ascentis we understand that keeping safe is a priority and as a result we’ve developed a Short Online Qualification in Infection Control and Prevention to help you protect and educate your learners. This qualification is accompanied by online resources and has a total qualification time of 10 hours – making it an ideal short course to enrich your learners’ knowledge in such an important topic and to get them used to learning and achieving in the classroom again. 

*Now Available. With our brand new e-Invigilation package your learners who can’t yet return to College can also complete this qualification from home as an induction to the classroom.

To support you we are currently offering our remote assessment and e-Invigilation package at cost price – £12 per assessment.
