The Building Block Covid update: Construction training course remains open for referrals

Written by Opportunity Sheffield

With Tier 3 Covid restrictions in force in Sheffield from Sunday 25 October, Opportunity Sheffield is continuing to review and adapt service delivery, where necessary.

We are happy to confirm that – at this point in time – referrals to the Building Block training programme remain OPEN.

The first stage of Building block will continue with supported learning via online tutoring and 1-2-1 sessions for the Health & Safety Level 1 qualification.

As such, you can still refer potential participants via the registration link below:

Opportunity Sheffield tutors will respond to individuals registering for the course to arrange dates for virtual attendance using the Zoom conferencing app.

The second phase of site experience will be limited and will depend on employer responses. At this point we anticipate some reduction in capacity to train and potential delays to local construction projects.

We will be doing all we can to get participants site-ready and progress them into employment during this period of uncertainty, but appreciate your understanding in helping to manage client expectations.

Many thanks

Opportunity Sheffield
