Omicron and Covid Plan B Update

Posted on 17 December, 2021

>

Following the increase in Omicron cases and recent guidance surrounding the Covid Plan B, we just wanted to inform you that in line with Government guidelines, we’ll continue delivering our apprenticeship and vocational training in the safest possible way to ensure your employees’ learning journeys remain as uninterrupted as possible.

With the ‘Plan B’ guidance being introduced by Government on Monday 13th December 2021, we have put in place an additional safety measure for when we conduct face-to-face appointments at your premises or our academy learning venues. This measure means we’ll liaise directly with each of our employer partners to understand your individual circumstances and regulations before visiting your venue or taking your apprentices off-site.

We understand that the current situation may be a cause for concern, but as always we’re here to support you and will update you promptly if there will be any change in the service we provide to you.

If you have any questions, please contact your local representative.


Testimonials

It was great speaking to our account manager, Catherine, this afternoon and great to hear that HIT are being so supportive with our apprentices, I found the call very positive in a time of crisis, so thank you.

The Learner’s leaflet is great and being sent out to Apprentices and Line Managers following our communication last week providing a great follow up.

Jonathan Foot - Head of Apprenticeships, Compass Group

McMullen’s chose HIT as its sole external provider for Apprenticeships and vocational qualifications in early 2015 and since then we have found them a pleasure to work with.  Their expertise in this sector is superior and they have proven to be a professional and supportive partner who have a passion for learning and development, which matches our own organisation.

Amanda Walden – Training & Recruitment Manager, McMullen's

Encouraging our staff to improve their skills set and supporting them through apprenticeships and training programmes underlines our commitment to help them further develop their own careers. Offering the Level 4 Higher Apprenticeship also gives the Brend Group a point of difference which I’m convinced will help attract new members of staff in the future.

Andrew Mosedale - Group HR Manager, Brend Hotels

Our partnership with HIT has certainly made recruitment much easier in a very difficult labour market and gives us a point of difference in an increasingly competitive environment.  Kew Green has also benefited enormously from well trained, skilled and competent staff who contribute significantly to the ever improving and high levels of customer experience that our guests expect and deserve.

Andrew Tregenza - HR Business Partner, Kew Green Hotels

Apprenticeships allow us to give people a great opportunity to develop a career with us and learn a skill or trade that will accompany them throughout their career and life. We see progression to the Level 4 qualification as key to our strategy of providing development at all stages of an employee’s career with Harrison.

Alex Taylor - Training Manager, Harrison Catering Services

HIT Training has provided such an incredible support to us during lockdown, with regular webinar invitations, videocalls and engagement solutions. Our business focus shifted to learning and development and we managed to enrol 3 times more apprentices on training programmes than before!
