COVID 19 Latest Updates

Information for Training for Skills (TFS) & Apprenticeships

Given the rapidly changing situation in relation to COVID-19, the Department for the Economy has advised that given the government’s further restrictions around when people should be leaving home, all Training for Success placements must now cease.

As with the cessation of face-to-face delivery, all participants will be recorded as Authorised Absence until further notice and the College will ensure that all weekly Training Allowance payments for those trainees on the Training for Success programme will continue to be paid and will ensure participants are not financially disadvantaged during this interim period.

The College will remain in regular contact with trainees and apprentices during these uncertain times to provide ongoing information, support and guidance.

For further information, please contact: [email protected]
The Government has advised that Training for Skills (TFS) students must not attend work placement at this time. You will continue to receive your weekly payment.

If you have any outstanding timesheets please post or email these to the appropriate campus. Your tutors / lecturers will be in touch about linking you to CANVAS and you will be required to complete tasks set by them. Please refer to the college website and social media channels for updates.

Contact your Skills Support coach for advice or Diane Campbell at 0791 867 8433
A number of our apprentices are facing uncertainty at the moment with regards to their employment status. Be reassured, that we will do everything we can to support you at this time.

Firstly, please make us aware if you have been made redundant or you are at risk of redundancy. Make contact with your Skills Support Coach or through one of our hub staff team.
