Eastwood Park to re-open for training

Gloucestershire-based training centre for the healthcare engineering and healthcare estate management sector, Eastwood Park, will recommence the delivery of specialist healthcare engineering, decontamination, and estates and FM training from 29 June.

As the spread of coronavirus accelerated across the UK, 22 March saw Eastwood Park postpone all planned events and training and close its main house and accommodation.

The training establishment said: “After a considerable period of closure, we are now pleased to be in a position to re-open, in line with the new Working safely during Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance, the Government’s gradual easing of the lockdown, and the introduction of our own COVID-19 policy.”

Eastwood Park plans has implemented a range of measures to safeguard learners while they carry out their essential training including:

  • Social distancing in classrooms and the house.
  • Reduced course numbers.
  • PPE for when social distancing is not possible.
  • Separate entrances/exits and refreshment areas designated to single groups for the duration of the course.
  • One-way systems.
  • Robust cleaning regimes.
  • Alternative catering options: room service and take-away lunches

While Eastwood Park gets ready to reopen its doors, it stresses that its team is ‘here and available to support customers, albeit with some staff working from home’.
