ADVANCED AND FOUNDATION MODULE: Information from the Connexion is that this training should be suspended. Deadlines for completion of the training will be extended. Where people are new to post, we are encouraged to direct people to the relevant handbook for their role.
T4T (TRAINING FOR TRAINERS) FOR THE FOUNDATION MODULE: The District has produced a digital/online version so that trainers are then prepared to roll out the new module when the current restrictions have been removed.
