Support and training is available for employers and employees.

Employees who have been furloughed due to Coronavirus can still undertake online training with Total People.

Total People has created a new Training in Furlough Information Sheet with details of how furloughed employees, both apprentices and non-apprentices, can benefit from its online learning.

Furloughed employees are those whose employers cannot cover staff costs due to coronavirus, and have been asked to stop working but have not been made redundant.

As furloughed employees can still take part in training, Total People is providing a wide range of online training that employees can access. This is both for current apprentices and non-apprentices.

Current Total People apprentices

For current apprentices, any learning will go towards their professional development. Apprentices who have been put on furlough can be supported via distance learning regardless of the duration of the furlough.

Employees not currently on an apprenticeship with Total People

Total People can still support non-apprentices with online training programmes. These can be short courses in a number of vocational areas, including support with maths and English functional skills qualifications.

Gina Steele, Managing Director, said: “Total People is committed to making sure all our learners, including those who have been furloughed, are fully supported during these times.

We’ve moved to remote learning and are encouraging all our learners to continue with theory and non-practical skills development through learning activities and tasks set by their Learning Coach on OneFile.
