COVID-19 Safe Working Arrangements
At Woodexperts, just as with many other businesses, we are now adjusting to the "New Normal".
In order to protect both our staff and our visitors, we are undertaking full and frequent disinfection procedures on all surfaces and handles throughout our premises. In addition, sterilising wipes, hand gel and facemasks will be available at all times, for everyone to use as needed.
Social distancing will be fully observed, to ensure that direct personal contact can be avoided.
With these measures in place, we are confident that our Education and Training courses and our Examinations can continue in as near-normal a manner as possible: though perhaps with some new requirements, to promote safe working. Some tutorials may also be done via Video Conferencing (Zoom) where practicable; although it is our primary intention to conduct class-based training, where that is both practicable and also more conducive to achieving better learning outcomes.
Please contact us for full details of how we can help you to keep on learning; whilst staying as safe and healthy as possible in these unusual times.

Some Of Our Clients
Woodexperts recognised in the Parliamentary Review
Jim Coulson and Jan Antonovics from Woodexperts attended the evening launch of the new 2019 edition of the Parliamentary Review on Wednesday 4th September at the Houses of Parliament - the very same evening that history was being made: when the Commons passed the law prohibiting Boris Johnson from instigating a No-Deal Brexit.
Jim had written an article for the magazine (see link below) stating his own Remain preference; but also strongly criticising all governments of whichever stripe, from Margaret Thatcher in 1979 onwards, for failing to have any coherent policy on providing funding for Education and Training in the Wood Industries during the past 4 decades.
Co-chaired by Lord Blunkett and Lord Eric Pickles, The Parliamentary Review is a bastion of political insight which serves as an indispensable guide to industry best practice. This analysis is communicated across a variety of editions, each of which covers a single UK policy sector; these include but are not limited to finance, education, environment, healthcare, manufacturing and technology.
Success for businesses of any size does not always come easily, and this year's edition of The Parliamentary Review is indispensable for anyone who seeks to make a name for themselves in industry. It highlights significant developments and concerns for business leaders up and down the country.
The co-chairman of The Parliamentary Review, Lord Pickles, has praised the upcoming Review as one of the most comprehensive yet. He commented that as Britain undergoes changes, it is “essential that politicians have a firm understanding of the challenges with which British organisations must contend” and that The Review once again provides a perfect platform for this.
Writing in The Review, The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Michael Gove says “this year’s Parliamentary review comes at a momentous time for parliament, as we collectively determine the destiny of the United Kingdom.”

One of the guest speakers was political journalist and TV presenter Andrew Neil; who adroitly summed up the state of chaos happening in the very place where we were gathered. And, when asked if an election was very likely, he said, "Definitely"; but when asked who would win, he said, "I can't tell you: I'm only a Political Commentator".
