With lockdown coming to end on the 2nd of December, York and Slough will be heading into the new local tier systems.Following the recent government announcement on Thursday 26th November,York has been announced as tier 2. This allows us to continue to deliver our full course programme as normal, however in a covid secure manner - ensuring we follow government guidelines. Since March we have developed a robust Covid-19 secure arrangement with a range of modifications to our centre, ensuring both the classroom and practical part of your training are held within a Covid secure environment. Slough has been announced as tier 3. Luckily, this doesn’t affect our course delivery, however, we want to reassure you that PPL Training is doing everything we can to follow government guidelines and ensure your training will be carried out in a covid secure environment. Since the initial lockdown, we have implemented a range of safety measures and continue to review and improve upon them regularly. We are continuously monitoring any new information that is released by the Government and will update this information accordingly.With the experience gained over the last few months and the large investment of both time and effort, we are in a strong position to continue to offer our industry-leading training within the new government tier system.If you would like a more detailed overview of what measures and practices our centres have implemented, you can see a quick overview in our video.
