We are dedicated to the ongoing health and safety of all our trainees and customers. Face coverings, cloth face masks, surgical masks and plastic face shields or visors (collectively referred to as ‘Masks’) are worn to limit the spread of germs.

The purpose of wearing a mask is to contain coughs and sneezes, and to prevent the spread of germs to people and nearby surfaces, which helps to protect the risk of infection transmission. Masks can also help people to avoid touching their nose or mouth accidentally. While a face covering does not filter the air, it can serve as a basic barrier against large droplets reaching the mouth or nose. ‘The best available scientific evidence is that, when used correctly, wearing a face covering may reduce the spread of coronavirus droplets in certain circumstances, helping to protect others.’ ( guidance)
The mask should be worn in all corridors, public spaces and common areas, as well as office spaces where multiple people are present, if a social distance of 2 meter plus is not possible to maintain.


Learners are required to wear a face covering if they are seated within 2 meters of another learner, in all lessons and when watching practical demonstrations. Each lecturer will be responsible for using their professional judgement when determining what is appropriate for their classes. All learners will be required to wear face coverings when performing and receiving treatments.

Other Measures

We use a number of additional measures, such as frequent handwashing, the use of hand sanitizer, working and/or conducting activities remotely, the avoidance of loitering and chatting in communal areas / corridors.


This guidance will be regularly reviewed in line with Government and Public Health guidance.
