When delivering Safeguarding or Chaperone courses, we have noticed an increase in the group size to make the most of the training opportunity and take advantage of our sliding pricing scale. In some instances recently, the group size has been too big for the space available, for example, the rooms acoustics make larger groups unmanageable due to the noise, or the room simply isn’t big enough.
After consulting with the CPD Certification Service and considering best practice, we have decided to set a maximum of 20 people on any course, except for the First Aid at Work suite of courses which already have a maximum of 12 people.
These changes will help ensure a healthy trainer to learner ratio.
Some of our courses are now registered with the CPD Certification Service so are verifiable CPD. Part of this process is to register with them the content, duration and maximum group size of the course. Therefore we must stick to course durations and maximum group sizes to ensure the course retains its CPD recognition.
