Corona-virus and training
at Sports Therapy UK


23rd March 2020.

It is clear the gravity of the situation globally and here in the UK is growing. We are all now aware of the immediate ramifications, but also some of the wider implications as we move further on. Inevitably these will increase before things start to get better, and one question everyone is searching for an answer to is ‘when?’ I am not even going to begin debating or trying to guess the answer to this as this would be quite futile. We are therefore preparing for a lengthy period of a national ‘shut-down’ the extent of which is bound to vary from week to week. We will look forward to when the time is right for us to offer practical training here in Hertford and to welcome you back, but we will only do this when the government and the W.H.O. deem it is safe for all concerned.

In the meantime, we will be doing all we can to support you and help you progress your learning in spite of the obvious limitations we are all facing. We recognise the added anxieties everyone will be dealing with over the coming weeks so we will be working hard to help reduce these with regards to your training with Sports Therapy UK. Here are some of the steps we will be taking:

Marking time for assignments:


We are diverting some of our teaching resources to reduce this as far as possible. We will keep you informed of how long to expect before receiving work back.

Practical training:


Where possible we will be recording more instructional videos to substitute the direct contact you would normally have with us. We are assessing each stage of training reached and how much going forward may be substituted by online instruction. We will liaise accordingly with each group to help you progress and will advise you of any variations in the level of direct contact required to complete your course. This will also involve us seeking approval from VTCT. Our aim remains to deliver the highest standards of tuition and to help you become both competent and confident in your professional capacity.

Tutorials:


We are exploring all options for online delivery and will use the most appropriate medium for each tutorial. We will notify each group as we create and make them accessible for you.

Support:


As we will not have the normal interaction with you, we will be using conference calls, skype, WhatsApp, emails, etc to directly support both groups and individuals.

Information:


We will distribute general news via newsletter, Facebook and would urge you to access and read these sources. We will try to generate interesting news and extra-curricular activities to help you through this period, plus tips on how you can interact with your clients.

Rescheduled Practical Training:


There will be a need to reschedule practical training dates. We will do this when we can be a little more confident that any revised dates have a greater chance of going ahead. I realise this doesn’t help when it comes to planning ahead and we would love to reschedule with confidence but that is simply not possible at the moment. We will keep you informed as things change.

Please make sure you continue to read all emails sent to you, and check the announcements posted on Canvas; these will be updated as frequently as necessary and we hope will provide answers to questions most of you are asking.

We look forward to staying in touch with you and wish you well.
