Durban, South Africa, 18 March 2020 – Summit, South Africa’s innovative training and skills development provider, has announced its plans to address the recent Covid-19 outbreak in terms of the impact it might have on its customers and operations across the country.
As one of the country’s foremost providers in bespoke training and skills development solutions, Summit has implemented various measures to ensure that its customers will still receive the utmost attention to their training programmes. These measures will not only protect the safety of learners, but also the facilitators who are at the forefront of educating learners for various companies, amidst the Covid-19 outbreak.
As educators, Summit has a responsibility to communicate the correct information to its stakeholders about Covid-19 and the way that this is being implemented is by offering free online training via Summit’s online learner experience platform. The company has ensured that the platform be made available to all who would like to access it.
The free training programmes that Summit is offering include:
- Training about the Coronovirus and Covid-19 for groups between 50 (min) and 100 (max)
- A training programme about Food Safety for groups between 50 (min) and 75 (max)
- As an added benefit, all SETA-accredited courses will also be made available online
The rationale for the group sizes is to offset the administrative costs incurred in order to load the training programmes onto the platform and make them readily available for efficient group training. All online training will involve a level of interactivity – from webinars, to interactive online sessions.
“We encourage users of the online training to share it with anyone who might benefit from understanding more about Covid-19 and Food Safety practices. Additionally, we will also be offering the free Covid-19 training in four official languages – English, Afrikaans, isiXhosa and isiZulu. It’s our responsibility as educators to equip people with sound knowledge via trusted training methodologies. The more we know about what’s currently occurring, the better equipped we will be to respond,” responds Matthew Lambert, MD of Summit.
