Classroom training returns at DHF’s academy in Tamworth

Door & Hardware Federation (DHF) has announced that its classroom training will once again resume from the end of April.  

The Tamworth-based trade association has, since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, been providing a mix of online training and examinations via its ‘Distance Learning Programme’ (DLP), with delegates able to continue to successfully meet their training obligations, albeit from the safety of their own locations.

From the end of April, learners can once again return to DHF’s training academy, a self-contained building on its own premises, with just eight delegates permitted on each course and social distancing rules strictly adhered to.  Ordinarily, the organisation’s spacious academy can accommodate up to 25 people per course, but safety remains a top priority for learners.

Head of Commercial Operations, Patricia Sowsbery-Stevens explains:
“As our courses are fully accredited by Ofqual, we were given the ‘all clear’ for classroom training to resume from 8 March from the Department of Education (DfE).  However, we have taken this additional time to ensure that a full risk assessment has been undertaken and a deep clean completed in preparation for opening day.  
When our classroom learning returned last June, we ensured delegates remained at a safe two-metre distance from one another, provided hand sanitiser, gloves, face coverings and disposable cups for all attendees, and learners were reassured by the spacious environment, both inside and out.  We will once again be implementing these initiatives.

“DHF has worked assiduously to ensure that our members and those attending our training courses have received a continuous and highly effective training provision throughout the past year,” 
She continues: 
“Feedback on our online provision has been outstanding, but we do understand that, for some, there is no substitute for face-to-face engagement.  We are therefore delighted to be able to resume ‘normal service’ shortly and have updated our training calendar accordingly.  We look forward to welcoming people back to the academy in Tamworth.”
