Booking is Essential 

It is essential that you book your place on our courses. We aim to provide a learning environment that is safe and comfortable for our learners therefore each course has a set number of available spaces. Courses are popular so please book in advance to secure your place. Turning up on the day without booking may cause disappointment if the class is full. Also if there are any unforeseen changes that occur before the start of a course, learners that are booked on can be easily contacted and informed of those changes.
