Education and training course update during the pandemic

19th May 2020

If you want to continue with your education and training read on

The pandemic has provided us with the opportunity to review the ways in which we provide many of our face to face courses and workshops; we have created a range of ways in which you can continue your education and training from webinars, Q&A sessions; online interactive sessions and Masterclasses.

Academic Courses

We are now able to run most of our study days as webinars supported by Q&A sessions, videos and ‘Ask the Expert’ sessions. Each week we are adding to the list of short courses (undergraduate modules) that can be accessed in this way. More Masters Level modules and the PG Cert in Diabetes will also shortly be available. The website is continually being updated to reflect this; so if you are interested in a specific course please check to see its status or contact us on contact@educationforhealth.org for more information

The Open University students
If your studies have been disrupted by Covid-19 and/or you are due to submit coursework, we will be able to offer to extend your submission date by 13 weeks initially, provided you complete a form for exceptional circumstances, which is located at the link here.

Please see any updates on your iLearn pages.

University of Hertfordshire students

Updated information will be provided on your CANVAS topic and you are able to have 10 day extension beyond the published date. Please complete the serious adverse circumstance form on study net if you require more time.

Face-to-face study days have now been replaced with Virtual/Webinars. Please see your module/short course pages for more details.

Please contact our student support team, if you have further queries about your study :

Workshops

We are exploring which of our workshops can be provided through a mixture of facilitated online sessions, supported by webinars and podcasts. The first ‘pilot’ online workshop is being tested in June. So, watch this space for more developments!

If you are a commissioner and would like commission a specific workshop online then please contact nhsteam@educaitnforhealth.org

Spirometry

The ARTP have indicated that it will be some time before any spirometry training or assessment can be done face to face. We know how important it is to be able to access the ARTP register and are working with our colleagues to create a programme that will enable participants to acquire all the knowledge and practical skills they need to undertake an assessment and gain access to the ARTP register. We plan to have something ready to run in September; to register your interest please visit the page here
