Online training while furloughed

Online training while furloughed

Furloughed employees are able to engage in training, as long as doing so does not provide services to, or generate revenue for, or on behalf of their company or a linked or associated company.

Where training is undertaken at the request of their employer, furloughed employees are entitled to be paid at least their appropriate national minimum wage. In most cases, the furlough payment of 80% of an employee’s regular wage, up to the value of £2,500, will be sufficient to cover these training hours. However, if the time spent training exceeds the furlough payment, employers will need to pay the additional wages

ISA Business Development & Support Services can provide a wide range of online training that your employees can access when in furlough. This means you can allow them to access training that will go towards their professional development and they can access this remotely from the comfort of their own home during the current situation.

There are a wide variety of online training courses available to have you fully up to speed with your online health and safety training. For just £24.99 (excluding VAT) learners can understand all there is to know about their chosen course. Whether you’re an individual wanting to expand your knowledge or a business owner wanting to have your employees trained, these online courses are the perfect solution. Regardless of your skill level, these courses are ideal for beginners, or as refresher courses for those who need to brush up on their skills and knowledge.

The courses ISA Support provide include training to deal with fires, foods, and trips or falls.
