Doing its part for #GuernseyTogether during lockdown the GTA University Centre is delighted to announce that it is offering 5 FREE virtual training sessions in February.

Recognising that the current COVID-19 situation may continue for some time, but also recognising that the need remains for local businesses and their employees to keep their skills up to date, the GTA has moved quickly to adapt its face to face courses to a virtual classroom format.

Michelle Morley, Head of Programmes at the GTA explains how lockdown presents an opportunity for learning: “Whilst this is a difficult time for everyone, it is also a great time for people to update their skills, take a professional qualification or just learn something new with the sense of achievement that that brings – all from the comfort of their own home”.

With lockdown specifically in mind, the GTA, part of the new Guernsey Institute, has created a series of 5 FREE training sessions; Michelle explains more: “We wanted to give something back and we have some great tutors who have also very generously offered their time without charge allowing us to offer a series of 5 virtual training sessions to help people at this time”.

The free sessions commence on the 17 February and are delivered in real time so delegates are still able to ask questions, ensuring that the courses are stimulating and interactive:

Simon Le Tocq, Chief Executive of the GTA, encourages early sign up as places are limited: “We hope the community will take advantage of this training and we’d love to hear what other training would be useful at this time. We also want to get the message out there that the GTA is still very much open for business and if we can help with training please get in touch”.
