  • COVID-19 and Autumn term training

    Hampshire Inspection and Advisory Service (HIAS) is offering a full programme of Autumn term courses that are available to book via the Learning Zone, including a number of NEW courses that our inspectors have designed to support schools on their return in September.  

    All our Autumn term training will now be delivered virtually and a number of courses are available to book as after-school sessions. We are continuing to monitor government guidance and to work closely with venues so that we can resume centre based training as soon as it is safe to do so.

    To help make it clearer, our courses are now identified on the Learning Zone as follows:

    • Webinar - where sessions are now all virtual.
    • Blended - where the course is now a mixture of virtual and face to face training (where further sessions are later in the year and we may be able to resume venue based training)
    • No categorisation - where sessions are currently still planned as a venue based delivery 

    Should you have any queries regarding autumn term training courses please contact htlc.courses@hants.gov.uk.
