Exceptional Circumstances

We appreciate that the current COVID-19 outbreak is a cause of concern and we will follow government guidelines and make all necessary adjustments as recommended and will only return to running our courses when it is safe to do so.

We hope the situation has improved sufficiently by August 2020 for us to continue running our courses. We are currently taking bookings but of course a full refund will be issued in the event they need to be cancelled due to Govt advice.

It is also possible that there may be Govt restrictions on the numbers that can gather in a group, in which case, we would run the courses with the students that have booked in date order, until we reach the maximum permitted.
