With the complex concerns around COVID-19 evolving quickly in British Columbia and around the world, it has become clear that we must all do our part to help. At Canadian Vocational Training Centre we are navigating this challenging time and wanted to give you an update on the actions we are taking to support our students and staff.
The health and wellbeing of our community is what matters most. With things changing by the minute, we are making some important changes at our centres throughout BC. Starting Friday, March 20, we will no longer be holding in class instruction and will move to a distance delivery model. This practice will continue for a minimum of three weeks. This decision was not made lightly and is a precautionary measure to help protect the wellbeing of the CVTC community.
In light of social distancing recommendations, we are also limiting student numbers in our centre and meetings with staff must be by appointment only. For students who need to have a face to face meeting we are able to setup individual appointments in a prepared classroom, on a case by case basis. We’ve taken additional precautions to keep our centres safe, including extensive cleaning and sanitizing in each of our locations while we remain open for business.
At the Canadian Vocational Training Centre we offer an amazing service to our students, partners and funders. In recent days, we have received numerous notes from students letting us know they appreciate the safety precautions we’ve taken and our continued efforts to serve their needs.
We are here to support you. Canada’s small businesses, essential services, educators, parents and local communities can count on Canadian Vocational Training Centre as we work through this crisis together. To get through this pandemic, we need to come together, be kind and caring, and continue doing our part to keep each other safe and healthy. Thank you for your continued patience and support as we all work through this unprecedented situation together.
