Due to the continuing effects of COVID-19, we will not be running any face-to-face courses during 2020.  We are developing some online learning offers and a programme of webinars and information about these will be made available on our website as they become available.  Given the unpredictability of the situation we will make decisions about training in 2021 later in the year.

We are now pleased to be able to offer the following on-line course via Zoom.  Click on one of the modules below for further details and to book:
