Business Continuity:

We would like to reassure all SKILLcard employers and holders that we have comprehensive systems in place to provide service continuity in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

All our systems and services can be accessed securely and remotely by our teams, meaning that if required we can provide a continuity of service even if we are required to work from home.

Changing Scenario:

The situation is continuously changing. We will update you with any further changes when they arise.

Many thanks for your support, flexibility and understanding.
