COVID-19 update

Reopening

At GTG, we have been continuously monitoring advice from the government and devolved administrations. We plan to open our centres in phases, and Phase 1 will see the reopening of our Glasgow facility. Further updates as to when our Edinburgh, Kilbirnie Street and Wolverhampton training centres will reopen will be provided.

Sales support

As you may expect, there is a high demand for upskilling and sector-specialist training across our portfolio of programmes. Our sales support and management teams are working flat out to identify the demand and address the training needs for those whose courses are already cancelled due to the lockdown.

We will create a fair and transparent waiting list by addressing the immediate needs of the healthcare and emergency service sectors, along with previously cancelled training and time- managed open enquiries.

For any clients looking to reschedule training, and all new course enquiries, please get in touch by emailing us at info@gtg.co.uk or call our sales managers:

Graeme Findlay - 07738 890560

Dan Back - 07825 995420

For all conference and events enquiries, please call Tracey McCallum on 07514 560545.

Apprentices and your employers

We will be in touch with you soon to let you know what the revised timetables look like for each phase of our return.

We do expect that some training, which is traditionally hosted at our centres, will change and you will undertake some remote learning. It is also reasonable to assume that some apprenticeship training due to take place this year may be postponed until 2021, but we will know more about this when we get in touch to discuss your return to training.

We will discuss your learning journey, and if an extension to your original programme end date may be required. In the meantime, we will continue to provide remote learning activities for our apprentices and a GTG representative will be available to guide you along the way.

All apprentices and employers can contact us at quality@gtg.co.uk

How GTG will work safely

When it is time to reopen, you can be assured that we will put you and our employees' safety first. Over the last seven weeks we have been working hard to implement a number of new strategies, policies and procedures to help us reopen our training centres safely.

We know that we are in this for the long haul and to help us provide our delegates and apprentices with safe, high quality learning, many things will need to change.

Our strategy and linked policies will outline how we will be implementing these changes and what will be expected from you.

In the meantime, if you need advice and support, you can get in touch with us in the following ways:
