Important Message RE COVID-19 - Training Back to News Index

  • Jobs/Apprenticeships
Over the coming days, based on official Government advice, St Helens Chamber staff are working remotely to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 for the safety of both our employees, students and vulnerable members of the community.

Our main office on Salisbury Street is remaining open for essential services only, however some of our other sites are temporarily closing as of 23rd March, including Clickworks in St Helens town centre, our Liverpool offices at Merseyside Youth Association and our Hair Academy and Construction Training Centre.

In line with the latest Government advice, we have stopped classroom-based delivery of our training. However, we are now offering select courses remotely.

To those currently undertaking Apprenticeships with us, your learning will not be affected as our staff will have all the tools they need to continue to work with you. During these times of uncertainty we are committed to ensuring that training continues as normal.

Our Apprenticeships team will be conducting meetings over the phone, video calls and will be communicating with each other regularly through conference calls ensuring our high standards are maintained through this challenging time.

If you have booked onto one of our courses, scheduled to take place in the next few weeks, a member of our training team will be in contact with you soon to update you on arrangements. If for any reason you don’t hear from us please call us on 01744 698800 or email info@thestartingpoint.org or apprenticeships@sthelenschamber.com

Although the next few weeks are uncertain, we are confident in our ability to continue supporting all of our learners and will continue to communicate any necessary changes as soon as we have them.

Best wishes to everyone.

John Westhead
Director of Training Services
