An endorsed Training provider is an organisation, company or group of individuals who take on the responsibility for the provision of learning towards unit standards, skills programmes and or qualifications. As such training providers subscribe to the criteria, policies and procedures, rules, learning provision strategies and the standards set out by relevant Governmental departments, bodies and or affiliated Associations in terms of training and assessment and with this comes expectations and a duty to deliver. Very often these entities will accommodate the learner on their grounds and certainly in the tourism industry the courses are not limited to the classroom. Experiential programs and work placements expose the learner to foreign and sometimes higher risk environments and the company receiving fee’s has a duty of care to ensure the learners are indeed safe and secure.
Under these pre-requisite conditions Training providers need to ensure that the facilities available to both the learners and staff are suitable and meet the required legal standards and requirements as laid down under the various ordinances such as Health and Safety regulations etc. These could include adequately equipped lecture facilities (not necessarily classic classrooms as lecture facilities could be semi-open outdoor style lecture areas), physical and equipment Resources, learning and media resources, general and public liability considerations.
All of the above considered, it would make sense that an entity focussed on this sector consult with our specialist brokers to design and put in place relevant risk transfer solutions.
