Subscription Service

The Thomson C-19 School Toolkit is a unique, new online subscription service for schools and colleges. It’s designed to ensure you’re always informed, up-to-date and able to plan, then work effectively around COVID-19.

A 6-month subscription service, it’s informative, interesting and inexpensive. Your staff can earn CPD accreditation, if required, as well. 

The C-19 School Toolkit sorts the facts from the fake news. Learn how COVID-19 is transmitted, the effectiveness of different measures and how to optimise operations within your organisation.



Our knowledge of COVID-19 is evolving continuously. Unfortunately, not everything we read about it is accurate or relevant. Even in the mainstream media. ‘Fake news’ to promote a particular perspective or prejudice; clickbait scare stories. They’re everywhere.

There’s lots of Government advice: hundreds of guidance notes and directives to schools and colleges. 

The Thomson C-19 School Toolkit cuts through the clutter.

You’ve had half a term of working in new ways. Much of it will have been successful, some may not.  Nevertheless, you need to reappraise your working methods continuously. And you need to have appropriate and up-to-date information to work with.

Now’s your chance to step back, keep up-to-date with the latest knowledge and optimise your day-to-day operations. Refine the changes and continuously evolve. Keep moving, keep improving.

It’s no longer about simply following official guidelines. Leadership teams have to interpret the wealth of information out there and adapt to local circumstances and environments. Decisions need to be informed decisions.


Thomson Screening have worked with subject matter experts to bring you a range of services. It’s our mission to keep you informed, up-to-date and armed with the tools to enable you to do your jobs safely.

It all starts with low-cost, CPD-accredited online training: this is your Coronavirus 101. It’s a factual understanding of COVID-19, myth-busting, so you can organise effectively and efficiently.

Key areas covered include:

  • About COVID-19 and how it transmits.
  • Preparing for any COVID-19 eventuality.
  • Practical steps to take in order to protect staff, students and visitors.
  • Markers you need to use to monitor the situation.
  • Review and assessment.

The Coronavirus 101 online training and assessment are designed to take around 90 minutes to complete. It can be taken in a single session or multiple sessions.

After that, you’ll have access to a risk assessment template, our curated knowledgebase, regular webinars, email support from the doctors behind the content and live Q&A sessions with them, too.

So, the online training and content gives you the generic knowledge to be able to plan and manage your firm’s response to COVID-19. The access to the doctors behind the content allows you to ask questions that are specific to your needs and circumstances.


This online training course is designed for any member of staff at any school or college. Leadership teams, teaching staff, administrators, governors. In particular:

  • Team members with specific health and safety responsibilities;
  • Team members with specific responsibilities for COVID-19 preparedness and management;
  • Leadership team members.

We recommend that a minimum of TWO members of staff take this course. They can then share some or all of its content with colleagues, as they see fit.


Choose between the standard subscription with a Coronavirus 101 assessment and certificate of completion, or with CPD accreditation. Complete the short enrolment form. Once submitted, that takes you to a secure payment portal (Stripe) where you’ll need to make your first payment by card.
Then you’ll receive confirmation of payment receipt and be able to access all of the materials.

The C-19 School Toolkit programme enables the safety leads at participating schools and colleges to be:

    Able to distinguish the facts about Coronavirus from the myths and conjecture;
    To understand more about the virus, its transmission and risks to the organisation;
    To shape their new operations faster and more efficiently, saving precious time;
    To demonstrate to stakeholders that they’ve sought expert advice before making important recommendations and implementing change.


Our medical experts are both surgeons who’ve been at the sharp-end of dealing with the pandemic in hospitals. They have experience at a national level in healthcare, safety and regulation. This includes participation on Process C19, in response to the coronavirus pandemic, the Care Quality Commission and the Intensive Care Society’s expert group for ‘Responding to COVID-19 and Beyond’.

Thomson Screening’s SchoolScreener® software has been used in school settings since 2011. It’s used in the management of immunisation programmes, online health needs assessments, NCMP data reporting, vision and hearing screening programmes.


Once you’ve taken the training, you can share its content, although not the assessments or CPD points, with colleagues.

There’s also a range of additional options available, including:

  • a curated and regularly updated library of relevant publications;
  • email support for your organisation’s utilisation of the C-19 School Toolkit;
  • discounted access to consultancy services from our medical experts;
  • live clinician Q&A sessions;
  • access to and usage of Isolation Checker and Test Manager software;
  • access to discounted test providers.


The first step is to enrol.
