With the second lockdown for England now in force, education and training is set to continue across the country for all industries and sectors.  Awarding Organisations are providing information to centres on acceptable approaches and contingencies to ensure government guidance aimed at reducing infection is applied.  From what we have seen so far Training Providers for the construction industry are being encouraged to continue delivering training, assessment and qualifications, including end point assessments.  Special measures that have enabled 25,000 apprentices to complete their end-point assessment during the Covid-19 pandemic will be retained until at least March 2021.

The FIS Approved Training Provider network will continue to deliver training and qualifications for FIS members and there are discounts and offers available, have a look at membership benefits on the membership hub.  FIS is happy to help identify a supplier for your training needs, a list of available training and qualifications and suppliers can be found here or give us a call on 0121 707 0077 or email info@thefis.org.
