Please read our latest update on Waterside Training's position in response to the recent Government announcement.

Update: Thursday 19th March 2020

Notification for all Apprentices and Employers

As you will already be aware, the Prime Minister announced on Wednesday evening that education providers, including colleges, will close until further notice after this Friday, 20th March 2020.

As Waterside Training procures teaching services, and also occupies accommodation within the St Helens College estate, we are unfortunately affected by the latest Government position regarding closure.

Until further notice, all college-based teaching will be suspended for all apprentices. Apprentices should therefore attend their place of employment on the days they would normally be in college.

Waterside Training is in communication with all our employers, but we would also like to advise apprentices to contact their employers to confirm these arrangements.

If you have any queries or questions, please contact Kathryn Kirby, HR Manager on 07720 554 932.

The current position at Waterside Training is that no student or staff member has reported that they have been diagnosed with Coronavirus.

We will remain open for business as usual to both staff and students.

We want to reassure you that we are monitoring this situation very closely and will keep you informed should we need to take any action in order to safeguard our apprentices, colleagues, employers and the local community.

Any apprentice who is feeling unwell should ensure that they record their absence by calling 01744 694661. If you feel that your absence may relate to Coronavirus, then please ensure that you leave as much detail as possible, including the details of any advice you have been given by Public Health England, NHS 111.

If you become unwell whilst on Waterside Training premises, tell a member of staff straight away and let them know if you have travelled to any other countries in the last 14 days. Please then seek advice directly from NHS 111 on what you should do. Once you have received this advice, please contact us via 01744 694661 to report your absence and provide details of the advice you have been given e.g. self-isolate.
