Latest News on Covid-19 - updated regularly

This news will be updated on a regular basis for trainers as the Covid-19 crisis evolves. Please know that we are doing everything we can to assist trainers. This may unfortunately mean most of you will be having to close the majority of your operations down for a period. However, if we have any chance of gaining financial assistance from the Government, the industry must be socially responsible and ensure nothing jeopardises the spread of the virus. Things are changing constantly so whilst the situation evolves, be assured we will keep you updated.
