School Workshops - Learn By Design
Due to the ongoing situation and the requirement for social distancing practices, we are utilising a blended delivery process in order to provide a unique and innovative learning experience.
The By Design Group are proactively planning and continue to implement safe working practices to enable education, enrichment and working activities to develop, as the possibility of face-to-face interactions fluctuate around the constituent parts of the United Kingdom. This includes making company facilities, offices, and learning environments COVID-19 compliant, adhering to 5 guiding principles:
1. Prioritise staff, learners and service users’ wellbeing, health and safety.
2. Follow government guidance within the constituent parts of the United Kingdom.
3. Adopt a phased and managed approach.
4. Deliver improvements and adjustments as and when required.
5. Ensure all decisions align with our strategic priorities.
The By Design Group and associated companies’ approach to deliver safe, socially responsible operations with regard to COVID-19 can be found in the By Design Group COVID-19 Governance Statement.
