Courses

We offer a wide variety of both non-vocational and accredited courses designed to build self-esteem and skills as well as to gain nationally recognised qualifications.

Courses normally begin in September, January and April although short courses and workshops are available year round.  There are no restrictions on the number of courses booked, and our courses are now open to all, with few if any restrictions on where participants live.

We have a high demand for all our courses, which are offered on a first come, first served basis.   In order to guarantee a place, an enrolment form must be completed, along with full payment.  As places are limited on each course, we operate a waiting list if a course is fully booked. For more information please ring our Training Co-ordinator Jane Ross on 07483 104910 or 0208 420 1364 during office hours.
