Staff training continues despite the current restrictions thanks to support from our Coastal Communities Fund.

Staff training continues despite the current Covid-19 restrictions. Coastfields Leisure based on the Lincolnshire coast accessed support from our Coastal Communities Fund to upskill their team with valuable training.

Boston College recently delivered a Covid-19 secure Personal Licence Holders course to 11 team members from the business which has holiday parks along the Lincolnshire Coast.

The course was accredited by Ofqual and the Department of Culture, Media and Sport and meets the statutory requirements of the Licensing Act 2003.

David Honman, Business Manager for Coastfields Leisure, said: “It is more vital than ever in these difficult times to maintain investment in staff training so that we can emerge from the depths of the pandemic in a strong position, ready to take on the challenges ahead.

“We are grateful for the assistance of our partners in this project in enabling a mix of staff at all levels within the business to strengthen their licensing knowledge in an innovative and safe manner.

“Training always feels especially worthwhile when a package is created to fit the needs of a business, delivering the training safely on-site at an agreed date to senior managers and staff from different parts of the Coastfields business,” said George Bell, Employer Engagement Manager at Boston College.

The Coastal Communities Fund Careers and Business Skills in Greater Lincolnshire programme made the training possible, and the one-day course and invigilated exam all took place at Coastfields’ Vickers Point site.

“Training a group of 11 staff will give Coastfields greater flexibility and agility in responding quickly to new opportunities – a more valuable asset than ever as Lincolnshire’s coastal economy adapts to the new, unprecedented challenges thrown up in 2020,” said Nicola Radford, Senior Commissioning Officer at Lincolnshire County Council.
