"I just wanted to extend my thanks to you and your colleagues for facilitating our training last week at HOTA. The facilities were perfect for our needs and all the staff were extremely helpful. I'd especially like to thank Tony and Martin who were working poolside with us - they couldn't have been more accommodating."

"The course last week was really interesting. Deborah was very knowledgeable and informative and I feel I gained so much more then I thought and that's because there's so much to being a Mental Health First Aider than I realised. Also, the resources available to MHFA is fantastic, around all areas of Mental Health, something we can tap into to continue our learning, awareness and knowledge to find the most appropriate help when it may be required."

16.07.21 COVID 19 Pandemic Update Statement

Statement 16th July 2021


HOTA has carefully reflected on the currently published advice and guidance relating to the easing of Covid-19 restrictions in law from Monday 19th July 2021.

We have reached the decision that due to current case numbers and the ongoing need for self-isolation if in contact with a confirmed case, it is in the best interests of the health, safety and welfare of all of our Delegates, Visitors and Staff, as well as our local communities, if there is NO change to HOTA's current Covid-19 Secure measures that have protected people so well during the pandemic to date.

This means that daily temperature screening and declarations, as well as the wearing of face coverings when moving around within HOTA buildings and on certain practical sessions, will remain mandatory.  Social distancing will remain and class sizes will stay reduced to facilitate this. We will keep the situation under review regularly.

Acceptance of HOTA's Covid-19 Secure measures forms part of our terms and conditions for entry onto our training programmes and premises.
