Glasgow College to deliver COVID-19 prevention course

City of Glasgow College has created a bespoke online course that aims to help address concerns employees and customers may have in returning to activities that involve social engagement.

The short course has been designed to support businesses in the prevention and control of COVID-19.

Pamela Greer, Associate Dean for Health and Early Years at City of Glasgow College, said: 

“Our aim is to provide business and industry with an interactive course that will help alleviate some of the concern relating to cross infection from Coronavirus. We will use evidence based theory and practice relating to the chain of infection, COVID-19 and other pathogens. It’s for organisations where there is an immediate need for social contact, and is transferable across industries including health and social care, hospitality, retail, business, gyms and fitness.”

The course will include theory presentations, discussion and demonstration of practical techniques, and conclude with questions and answers. Follow up online information will also be provided. Each two hour session will be delivered via an online platform by a qualified healthcare lecturer. It will cover how to break the chain of infection through:

  • risk assessment
  • current guidelines
  • correct use of PPE
  • sources of reliable information

Course dates will be mutually agreed with individuals and businesses. For further details or to register your interest please contact Christopher Khan, Business Development Officer at City of Glasgow College.
