Following the recent government announcement, we want to reassure you that our doors remain open and our courses will continue as normal.
We are closely following all government guidelines to keep the Brookhouse family safe. With this in mind, we would like to explain a little more about why we are able to remain open with courses running as normal.
We are Key Workers
The definition of ‘key workers’ has changed dramatically over the last year. The health departments’ key worker list comprised mostly of health and care staff, as well as teachers and social workers. However, as the public demand for services expanded so did the key worker list, adding many industries such as Gas and Plumbing engineers as essential workers.
As we educate future gas safe engineers, our training is essential to keeping the country Gas Safe and therefore we are exempt from the government notion to carry out further education virtually.
Following Government Guidelines
All of our training must be delivered in an approved centre, therefore it is not allowed to be delivered online or virtually due to its practical nature. So by its nature, we are unable to close because we are simply not allowed to “work from home” as per the industry awarding bodies guidelines.
We are confident that we can keep you safe in our training centre. In line with official advice from HSE, it is recommended we stay open in order to maintain gas safety competence for future and current registered gas engineers.
In order to do this:
- We already have social distancing in force.
- We have increased our daily cleaning routine.
- We have all the necessary hand gels and washroom facilities you require.
- We recommend you bring your own drinking vessel for tea and coffee etc.
- We are currently not hosting any Open Mornings to reduce risk
What’s important is that Brookhouse Training Centre will remain open and will be conducting business as usual until we are told otherwise.
Train with Brookhouse
Any new students who are interested in pursuing a career in gas engineering please feel free to call our office – we would be happy to chat through the different options with you. Our aim is to leave you informed and educated, with your mind at ease. Although we would prefer to invite you to meet us over a brew and see our training facilities first hand at one of our Open Mornings, we simply can not do this at the present time. However, as an alternative, we are able to offer selected appointments throughout the week on a one-to-one basis with one of our dedicated career advisors.
