As the spread of the virus accelerated across the UK, on 22 March 2020 Eastwood Park took what it believed to be the only responsible course of action, to postpone all planned events and training and close its main house and accommodation until July 2020.
After a considerable period of closure, we are now pleased to be in a position to recommence our delivery of training from 29 June 2020 as planned.
This is in line with the new “Working safely during Coronavirus (COVID-19)” guidance, the Government’s gradual easing of the lockdown and the introduction of Eastwood Park’s own COVID-19 policy.
As we plan to reopen, it goes without saying that the safety of our visitors and staff is of the utmost importance. We have implemented a range of measures to safeguard learners while they carry out their essential training including:
- Social distancing in classrooms and the house
- Reduced course numbers
- PPE for when social distancing is not possible
- Separate entrances/exits and refreshment areas designated to single groups for the duration of the course
- One-way systems
- Robust cleaning regimes
- Alternative catering options: room service and take-away lunches
While we get ready to reopen our doors, the team is here and available to support you, albeit with some staff working from home. We are working hard to respond to you as quickly as we can and we would like to thank you for your continued patience.
We have already spoken to many of you regarding new dates and new arrangements; if you are planning to book with us as we move into this new phase, we are available on the phone at +44 (0)1454 262777 or via email to deal with your enquiries.
We continue to offer our support and appreciation to the very challenging work our friends and colleagues are facing in a variety of healthcare and critical service environments and once again we sincerely thank them all.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
