Return to classroom training and looking ahead...

Posted on 4 July 2021SharePrint

On 18th May 2021, following government guidelines, UK Training decided it was the right time to give our customers the opportunity to return to classroom based training. Over the past 6 weeks we have presented 11 classroom courses alongside our busy schedule of online training courses. Almost 100 delegates have attended our classroom courses. Testament to the protocols and measures that have been put in place by ourselves and our venues, 97% of attendees rated the venue as ‘Excellent’ or ‘Good’.

What do delegates say?

A recent attendee at our Role of a Company Secretary course was very impressed with their experience and was keen to feedback on many aspects of their training day...

“The venue was excellent and very well situated and the Covid protocols were all well dealt with, without being heavy-handed.  The course itself was led by a leader who combined expertise and experience with a wonderful openness and modesty, which put us all at our ease, made the day pass happily and facilitated excellent learning with the group."

Another attendee from A Complete Guide to FRS 102 shared their experience where they noted that all the COVID measures were followed, from booking through to the course on the day. They had a good experience and are looking forward to attending another course. A delegate from our Minute Taking course said that they really enjoyed being back face to face, as they find it much easier to focus.

Looking ahead...

In July, we have classroom presentations of some of our most popular VAT and GDPR courses, before we enter our summer break for classroom training. Online courses have a short break, but in August we have presentations of our VAT and Customs courses - ensuring you can still receive this critical training. 

Looking further ahead to the autumn, we are hopeful of safely delivering a more comprehensive schedule, predominantly in London, with a small selection also taking place in Manchester and Birmingham. Of course, we continue to recognise that many people will still wish to partake in our online training which has been so popular over the last 15 months. Over 3,500 delegates have benefitted from our online training over this period.

Some of the excellent feedback from our online training makes it easy to see why delegates enjoy it so much: 

“This is the best online training course I've done during Covid. Right pace, delivered in the right way and great content."
Director who attended The Role of a Company Director

“The whole course was great. I really wasn't sure if a webinar over 2 afternoons on this kind of subject would work but Kevin the presenter did a great job and I actually felt included in the course rather than just sitting listening"
Finance Manager who attended The Essentials of UK VAT

“I can't fault the course at all. Excellent in every way. Well worth the money. The presenter was excellent (as they always are) and I feel far more confident about navigating the furlough process after this course. Being able to ask questions was especially helpful. I have no doubt I will be attending more of your courses in the future and would recommend them to anyone."
Assistant Accountant who attended Payroll: The Essential Update 

And finally a thank you...

We would like to say a big thank you to anyone who has attended our courses over the last 15 months... we appreciate your support and understanding during this difficult time, as circumstances have continually evolved.

We hope that gradually people will gain confidence in returning to classroom training, but however you choose to receive your training in the coming months, we guarantee that you will always find our courses to be high quality, practical and relevant to the needs of your business.
