Before you book:

Please do not send along staff who have just worked a nightshift or who will be visiting clients immediately before or immediately after a training session. People arriving tired, stressed or late cannot gain the most benefit from a training course. We reserve the right to turn away individuals too exhausted to focus on the training or staff who turn up late for a course and disturb the flow of the proceedings.

All Age UK H&W courses are fully inclusive, but if you have any concerns about a member of staff's ability to participate because of physical, sensory or learning differences then please let us know in confidence in advance, so that we may make the appropriate adjustments.

Cancellations

Age UK Herefordshire & Worcestershire (Age UK H&W) operate a sliding scale of cancellation; If you cancel more than two weeks before the start date of a course, you can ask for a full refund, to change the names of the delegates being sent along, or to transfer a delegate to another training date. If you give less than two weeks but more than one week's notice of cancellation, 50 percent of the booking can be refunded. If you cancel less than a week from the training delivery date we wont be able to refund. There are no refunds for staff who do not turn up on the day of the training course.

If Age UK H&W need to change the date or cancel a course for any reason we will give you the maximum notice we can. In exceptional circumstances we may cancel a course due to extreme weather or circumstances at the training venue. You will be offered a full refund or the opportunity to transfer your booking to an alternative date.

Please ask your staff to read the following guidance before they attend the course:

Arriving at the Venue

The course will start promptly so please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start time of the course to allow plenty of time to go through our Covid-prevention precautions, use the toilet, and be seated ready for the start of the course.

You can call Training direct on 01905 740 950 extension 222 if you are struggling to arrive on time. Please note that the meeting will be locked to late arrivals 10 minutes after the actual course starts.

When you arrive please wait outside by the main doors to Age UK H&W and a member of staff will come to carry out a temperature check and to book you in prior to directing you to the training room. This room is located on the ground floor and is wheelchair accessible.

Covid-Secure Premises

  • We will ask to take your temperature when you arrive and supply you with PPE which we will ask you to wear throughout your visit.

  • There will be social distancing in the venue
  • Refreshments will not be available at this time, so please bring plenty to drink, and a packed lunch for an all-day course.

During the course

As this is a working environment please ensure you allow the necessary time and focus to get the best from the material being presented. Please bring pen and paper to make notes during the course. Our training sessions are fun and very interactive. We will encourage plenty of comments, points of view and the sharing of lived experiences. Delegates should not share any sensitive information about a client or organisation. Our session agreement asks delegates to maintain confidentiality about individuals and organisations and to respect the views of others on the course.

All Age UK H&W courses are inclusive, but if you have any concerns about your ability to participate, such as sensory or learning difference then please let the Trainer know in confidence before the start of a course, so that they may make the appropriate adjustments.

If the course contains practical elements such as Moving & Handling or First Aid, then please wear appropriate clothing to take part in these activities. You will be asked confidentially if you have any health concerns that could prevent you from taking part in the practical activities. Please let a Trainer know if you have any concerns about taking part in the course.

After the course

We will email you a pdf of the course once the training has finished and we have checked that everyone was able to join. If your Manager booked you onto the course using your work or personal email, or if you book yourself onto a course, you will receive the pdf directly. If your Manager booked you onto the course using your organisation’s email address a copy of the course will be available on request from your Manager.

Certificates will be emailed to your Manager after the training finishes. If you booked directly onto a course you will receive a certificate to the email address you used to book your ticket. We will also email a link to a Survey Monkey evaluation and we ask that you please fill this in and return it to us so that we can continue to improve our services. All of our evaluations are gathered anonymously.

If you have any questions, please contact Training on 01905 740 950 x222 or email training@ageukhw.org.uk.
