Your education during COVID-19

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect the lungs and airways. It's caused by a virus called coronavirus. It has reached pandemic levels in the UK and globally. The Government advises patients to stay home, to stay two metres away from other people at all times, to wash your hands as soon as you get home and not to meet others including family or friends. This outbreak has obvious consequences for the ways in which we deliver our education and training.

Student studying


Prospective long course students

If you are thinking about studying with us, our student recruitment team are working as usual and, for now, all our recruitment open events and interviews are taking place online via Zoom, which is very easy and safe to use. If you have any questions about our courses or our application process during the Pandemic, please see our FAQ's here.  You can also get in touch with the student recruitment team at training@tavi-port.ac.uk and someone will get back to you.  Please also follow us on social media for the most up to date information regarding our open events – head to Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn and search for ‘Tavi Training’.

Current students

This advice applies to students registered on our postgraduate and Trust Certificate programmes. Those due to attend an upcoming CPD event, please refer to the next section. 

Face-to-face teaching has been suspended and we will be delivering training activities for Term 1 and Term 2 of the 2020/21 academic year online. Please continue to access our dedicated page on Moodle for extensive information regarding arrangements and student support. 

We have added a page on our website to support you in accessing online training. Please check back regularly for resource guidance updates and additions.  Please also continue to use other TEL resources as required to support your studies, and check your email and your course’s Moodle page for further updates.

We have also been working with our university partners and the relevant professional bodies to make sure that our arrangements for teaching and assessment continue to meet their standards and requirements.  We are providing regular updates to our students, and we are also posting the updates, along with some FAQ’s, on the Moodle support page for COVID-19.   

Our Moodle page also contains details of several internal and external resources to support students’ wellbeing. 

We understand that this is an unsettling time and you may have questions about this change. Thank you for bearing with us while we address the challenges posed by this situation and be assured that we are working hard to support your progression and the quality of your training experience with us.

For current students, if you are worried about your studies or you feel you need help managing these changes, please complete our online form and we will aim to provide a response within two working days.  


CPD Courses


Over recent months we have successfully delivered the vast majority of our planned programme remotely. As the current restrictions ease, we are mindful of the ongoing uncertainties and the anxiety that this can cause. We want to reassure you of the Trust’s ongoing commitment to the safety and wellbeing of all engaged in our learning community as well as our wider duty to prevent further spread of the virus.  

Therefore, we have taken the decision to continue to deliver our courses remotely throughout the Autumn term, and for some year-long courses for their full duration into 2021.

We are aware that some events are best delivered face to face, and that many delegates prefer this format. Therefore, we are keeping the situation under close review and hope to deliver a select number of courses face to face in 2021, subject to the conditions then prevailing.

Course pages will be updated at the earliest opportunity and we thank you for your patience.
