Information and advice.


Throughout the pandemic, we have followed and implemented the government’s advice regarding the safety measures we have put in place to protect our students and staff from infection. The government has now ended all legal coronavirus restrictions and instead places personal responsibility on individuals to reduce the spread of the virus.

What happens if I test positive or experience Covid-19 symptoms?

At SPTI we believe that we all have a personal responsibility to protect those around us as this fits with the philosophy of training to become a therapist. Although self-isolation is no longer mandatory, if you have the main symptoms of Covid-19 or have a had a positive test result, the public health advice is to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days after the day you took the test. We recommend that you do not attend workshops, study days or visit the library if you had tested positive in the last 5 days or you are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms (i.e. a high temperature, a new continuous cough, a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste).

Any student who is unable to attend a workshop will be fully supported to enable them to make up the time missed and retain their full attendance record. If you are unable to attend, please contact your Academic Administrator in the first instance. A member of your teaching team, for example your Link Tutor or Programme Leader, will then contact you directly to discuss and explore a range of options with you.
