Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Updates from the CIPP

Coronavirus (COVID 19) update from the CIPP 23 March 2020

The CIPP takes its responsibilities regarding reducing the risk of spreading COVID 19 very seriously, as such, we are continually monitoring the governments' advice regarding public gatherings and events. We would like to assure you that you shall continue to receive the same level of service and support from the CIPP regardless of how the situation evolves.

Following the recent announcements and advice provided by the government, we have taken the decision to move our training courses online from Monday 23 March.  The courses continue to run as advertised but are now delivered via Adobe Connect so that you can continue to gain knowledge and training from the comfort and safety of your homes or offices. We nonetheless ask our delegates to ensure that they only attend if they feel well enough and follow the governments' advice - https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

With regards to forthcoming events from May, we shall continue to plan as normal but will also make provisions for these events to be delivered online. 

If you are booked to attend anything face to face in the coming weeks, you will be communicated to directly via the team in relation to your attendance and how this affects you.

For our Foundation Degree programmes in Payroll Management and Pensions Administration and Management, recordings of module workshops will be available to students through the Moodle platform. Further details of this are being communicated via the Moodle platform and directly to students scheduled to attend upcoming module workshops. Tutors will also be available through the usual channels of communication and at the agreed times. All tutorials will be delivered online by tutors again with further communication following on Moodle. The CIPP will provide further information regarding future exams once we are appraised by the University of Worcester on the appropriate practice in light of developing circumstances. 

The CIPP team are now working remotely from home, we will still be able to support our members, clients and customers remotely. The CIPP already has a number of remote workers and flexible working which enables employees to work from home, so we anticipate there will be minimal disruption to you and you shall continue to receive the level of service and support from the CIPP as you would if we were based in the office. Due to restricted postal services into the office, please send all correspondence electronically where possible. Original or hard copies may be required when normal service resumes.

Face to face meetings are now conducted online, and if they can’t be delivered online they will be postponed.

We shall continually assess this situation and advise if anything changes.
