In conjunction with the Good Things Foundation and the ONS, BMH Training will be supporting the local community by offering a Census Support service throughout March, April and May. However, due to the National Lockdown we are unable to offer face-to-face support but will be able to offer support in many other ways.
How to access our Services
Our staff will be on hand to deliver one to one support over online chat, over the phone, Microsoft Teams and Zoom throughout the Census.
To book an appointment contact us on 01942 261 342, firstname.lastname@example.org or by clicking the Live Chat bubble in the bottom right of the website. If you would prefer, you can also use our Contact Form and we can get in touch with you.
What is the Census?
According to the Office of National Statistics the Census is:
Your household will receive an invitation to take part in the Census 2021 any time now, look out for it and if you feel that you may struggle with it, get in touch.
Opening Hours During the Census we will be open as follows:
Over the past year, we have had to change the way we do business and while the centre is closed our classes continue online. In the centre, we have made several significant changes to ease the transition back into classes safer for our staff and clients.
We have installed automatic hand sanitiser stations throughout the centre, including on the wall on the way in, one at the top of the stairs and outside each classroom. We have replaced the handwash in the toilet with an automatic dispenser. Make sure to utilize these at every opportunity while you are in the centre.
New guidelines are in place for how people enter the building, access the classrooms and a new seating plan. Learners will now sit 6-ft apart unless they are in a bubble or the same household. In our computer room, we have installed plastic screens between computers.
At the moment we can only have limited numbers of clients in the building. If you are unsure as to whether you should be in class please talk to your tutor.
Face masks should be worn at all times upon entering the building, in the corridors and kitchen and when leaving the centre. You can remove your mask once seated in the classroom if you feel comfortable. Our tutors will be wearing face visors and/or masks throughout the sessions. If you are exempt from wearing a face mask, please make sure your class tutor is aware before you attend your class.
We have several different courses still ongoing including:
The Wigan Skills and Learning Functional Skills classes have moved online.
