PeoplePlus: COVID-19 update

Chris Roberts, Training & Engagement Officer, PeoplePlus

“Following the Government’s advice on Monday 16th March 2020, the Sheffield Skills Centre is now temporarily closed until further notice and all staff members are working from home to remotely support learners.

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused and we will be in touch with every learner to discuss options moving forward. As we do not want learners to miss out on any training opportunities we are currently offering a remote learning option to current learners on programme and we are still taking new referrals.  

Referrals can still be made to either myself or Mina by calling the Sheffield office on 0114 2894861 or my mobile number 07773 488805. Alternatively with the learners consent, their details can be emailed to myself and Mina to follow up.

As we will not be conducting any induction sessions at the centre, myself and Mina will be calling referred customers over the phone to conduct an IAG assessment. Once we have carried out the phone IAG session we will then be supporting learners remotely through our dedicated tutors. Referred learners will need to have phone, internet and laptop/tablet access to conduct their course.

Many thanks

Chris Roberts, Training & Engagement Officer, PeoplePlus
