Corona-virus and training
at Sports Therapy UK


12th June 2020.

We are pleased to update our position with the following information in relation to conforming with government guidelines towards limiting the spread of Covid19. Since the end of March 2020 we have postponed several practical training courses and contacted all affected students directly. We are now preparing to recommence practical training for our courses from the start of July 2020, and dates for these may be found on our website. These changes are subject to further change in relation to government directives.

During the current period, we will continue offering blended learning to our students, as well as some new online courses.

We remain fully committed to ensuring you have an enjoyable and rewarding learning experience fully supported by our tutors and all staff at Sports Therapy UK and we are look forward to seeing many of you again from July 2020 onwards.

Information for new students


If you are thinking of studying with us, please see all courses on our website. Many have been rescheduled since the lockdown and all those currently showing on our Course Dates webpage are available for you to enjoy from July 2020 onwards.

We still have some courses such as First Aid that may be completed online and these comprise full audio presentation tutorials, comprehensive practical demonstrations on video, self-test quizzes to check your learning, plus tutor support by email, phone and conference calls.

All students attending practical training with us in the future will be required to conform with our Working Practise Covid-19 Policy which has been implemented utilising all practicable steps to safeguard the well-being of all our students and staff, as well as preventing the spread of the virus. This Policy and Self-Declaration form will be made available to students shortly before attending our practical training.

We are in close contact with our awarding body Vocational Training Charitable Trust (VTCT) and will continue to conform with their current educational criteria ensuring our students will be eligible for their chosen award upon successfully completing our course.

Information for current students


Please refer to the Announcements on your Canvas online Learner Resource where you will find up to date information of how we are helping students who are at varying stages of their training with us.

We have contacted all course groups where practical training has been postponed, notifying them of new dates to restart courses and help a progression towards a successful outcome for each student.

Additional practise and revision training days to help review and hone all skills prior to resuming your practical training have been scheduled.
