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.  During the Covid-19 Pandemic, our courses are still running with adaptations using learner packs and virtual teaching.   For more information please ring Jane Ross on 07483 104910.

Courses normally begin in September, January and April although short courses and workshops are available year round.

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.
