How to do a Covid-19 self test

Coronavirus update

HWGTA centres are operating in accordance with the latest Government guidance, specifically that provided by the Department for Education. This enables us to provide face to face training for all apprentice programmes and in-centre training courses.

The safety of learners, staff and visitors has been, and continues to be, our overriding priority.   Learners, delegates, staff and visitors are required to wear a face covering when in corridors or communal areas, when at a HWGTA training site. Following the latest Government announcement, as of 2nd January 2022, apprentice learners will be required to wear face coverings when in learning environments and classrooms, unless 2 metre social distancing can be consistently upheld.  Wearing of face coverings for course delegates is optional, with social distancing measures in place for all courses.   Face coverings will not be required when an individual has a medical exemption that precludes them from wearing one.

In addition to this, HWGTA learners and staff are continuing to be part of the Department for Education’s lateral flow testing programme to prevent the risk of asymptomatic transmission.

Workforce Development Courses

HWGTA deliver a large portfolio of face-to-face and online courses. Please contact or visit our website for details.

Specific arrangements for delegates will be communicated in advance of you attending our centre.

Apprentice Recruitment

We encourage applications from anyone interested in an apprenticeship. Many employers are recruiting apprentices for immediate and summer starts and we are supporting them in finding suitable applicants. We are carrying out initial assessments and interviews using the latest technology available, to ensure we can place apprentices with employers, as soon as opportunities arrive. 

Accountancy Distance Learning Assessments

Distance learning exams in our centres are available for booking. If you wish to book your place or amend an existing booking please contact Charlotte at

Remote/Online Apprentice learning

One of HWGTA’s key aims has been to keep our apprentice learners in learning and working towards their original completion target dates, even if our centres are closed.  Should we need to return to lockdown measures we are fully prepared to continue all apprentice training via remote methods.

In the event of a return to lockdown all Apprentices, are expected to continue attending remote training provision, remote meetings/calls with HWGTA staff and completing work to set objectives and timescales. The training provided will be specific to your programme and progress to date.
