La Touche Training Requirements for Face To Face Training at Client Premises

For over 25 years La Touche Training have been a leading legal training provider for face-to-face training.

During the pandemic lockdown all face-to-face training ceased, with alternative training being delivered using a virtual format.

As the restrictions necessarily imposed during the lockdown are now being gradually relaxed, we must consider how a structured return to face-to-face training can be managed ensuring a safe learning environment.

How we deliver training

This document sets out the safeguards we have identified to ensure a safe learning environment for face-to-face training. However, it has been drafted taking account the following key factors:

  • None of our training requires physical contact between the trainer and the delegates or between the delegates themselves.
  • The vast majority of our training courses are delivered ‘in-house’ at our clients’ premises.
  • As such, we have limited control over certain safeguards that should already be in place at these premises.
  • Every training venue will face separate and varying challenges in enabling face-to-face training to be conducted in a safe manner.


  • We must assure our trainers that La Touche Training have taken all reasonable steps as the supplier of training to ensure that the proposed training venue is safe.
  • Below you will find the Checklist which confirms to the trainer the control measures that we expect to be in place at any training venue.
  • Some of these measures will not be visible or identifiable to the trainer on the day. However, where such measures are clearly identifiable upon inspection, trainers are instructed to satisfy themselves that the requisite safeguards have been actioned at the venue and, in particular, within the classroom itself. Where the agreed safeguards do not appear to have been actioned, trainers are instructed to immediately contact La Touche Training to seek direction on whether the training session can be delivered safely or at all.
