Remote Learning

In the light of the current Corona Virus/Covid 19 crisis, Warwickshire Garage & Transport Group Training Association Limited (WGTA) continues to be open for business.  We are continuing to deliver off the job training on a remote learning basis and for any critical on the job training requirements, we will visit the workplace if the employer and learner are happy with this arrangement and all Covid-19 secure measures are in place.  We also continue to work with any furloughed learners.

“Remote learning” refers to any learning which takes place when face to face contact is not available in the workplace or training centre.

Remote learning will take place when:

Due to current Covid 19 related reasons , a learner needs to self-isolate

The workplace or training centre is asked to close or restrict attendance as part of any local or national lockdowns as instructed by Government

As part of our remote learning offer to all learners we will provide the following:

Continued setting of work for all qualifications being undertaken to include Zoom meetings, written assignments and any automotive repair research and videos.

The tutor, assessor and co-ordinator will contact all learners on a regular basis to discuss progress and any support required via telephone and email.  Additional support will be provided for those who need it.

Planned on-line learning will take place via timetabled sessions and if necessary, flexible sessions will be provided to meet individual learner needs.

Alternative assessment arrangements will be made available in line with Awarding Body and End Point Assessment Organisation guidance.

We expect that learners will continue to maintain contact with their tutor, assessor and co-ordinator and where possible attend scheduled sessions.  We expect learners to complete all work set by reasonable deadlines.

Any learner who is unable to complete this remote learning due to lack of IT resources, they should contact their tutor, assessor or co-ordinator to discuss alternative arrangements where possible.
