We are providing fire safety training virtually

The Learning Enterprise (TLE), our main provider of learning and development, is leading the way nationally by providing live fire safety training events via a virtual classroom.

In the UK, healthcare providers have to deliver safety critical training face to face to meet fire code requirements, so that student engagement can be assured and understanding confirmed live by subject matter experts.

With Covid pandemic restrictions making this a particular challenge, TLE have developed live virtual training that fulfils these requirements through the virtual classroom, with the use of software that allows trainers to monitor student engagement and assess their understanding.

The success of these virtual sessions caught the eye of our Fire Safety Manager, Gary Smith, who is also an active member of the National Association of Healthcare Fire Officers (NAHFO).

After sharing with other members he said, My fire-specialist colleagues in the NAHFO have shown great interest in the success that TLE have had in providing high quality learning online. They are keen to see it for themselves and learn from our experience, as they now realise the need to adapt to pandemic restrictions in the longer term.”

At their request, NAHFO members from varying healthcare providers and NHS trusts across England will experience TLE’s virtual Fire Awareness class with Neil Pigott (shown in image), one of TLE’s specialist safety trainers.

TLE’s classroom training and software satisfies the requirements of the fire code for NHS and complies with current fire safety legislation.

Taking place on Thursday 12th November 2020, Neil Pigott will deliver the online session to NAHFO members. The attendees will sit in a class based within the Adobe Connect Virtual Classroom, demonstrating the potential value of Adobe’s interactivity tools, means for measuring attendance and engagement that have the equivalency with face-to-face training.

The Learning Enterprise, with well-designed and professionally delivered online lessons, is now routinely providing quality training within the virtual classroom, meeting and exceeding national standards.

TLE’s Fire Safety training has not yet been offered to other organisations within healthcare but other subjects offered by TLE are being delivered externally.
