Covid 19 Notes:

We are open and ready to run a full range of courses in 20/21.
Our initial blocks of training will be delivered through a blended approach that mixes socially distanced face-to-face teaching in tandem with some virtual delivery. It is our aim to return to a residential conference based approach to training as soon as this proves feasible within government guidelines.
