2 March 2021 - Training Update

We're currently offering inhouse and small group courses

We're still offering courses, albeit a reduced offering due to the ongoing lockdown measures. At the moment we are limiting mixed groups and group sizes and where possible trying to keep all courses as inhouse ones to avoid the risk of Covid 19 transmission.

With recent announcements regarding the roadmap out of lockdown we are hopeful that we will be able to return to a more normal training offering from May/June, but we will update you on our plans as the restrictions are lifted.

If you require any training, please let us know - we are now starting to book dates for May/June!

11 December 2020 - Still Providing Training & A New Freephone Number

Courses – currently booking for January onwards!

We’re still able to, and are continuing to operate courses, but some are being impacted by the closure of hospitality venues (especially in areas we cover that fall into Tier 3 where such venues have been forcibly closed), which means in some cases we are only able to operate certain courses on an in-house basis at customers own premises. For courses that are outdoor, or usually take place at customers premises because of space or equipment requirements there is less of an impact.

Because of the above changes we are working a little differently and are not publishing a programme of dates at the moment. We would ask all customers get in touch to let us know their training requirements so we can work to arrange training within the restrictions we are all currently facing.

New Phone Number – 0800 999 1288

We’ve also been working on the setup of a new free phone number so it’s now free to call us from landlines and mobiles – we’d really appreciate it if you would take a moment to update it in your contacts (but don’t worry, the previous 01405 704271 number is still in operation and goes through to Jean directly).

7 December 2020 - We've had a bit of a makeover

We've had an overdue spruce up of our website and to make it easier to browse we have now optimised it for mobiles and tablets so it fits the size of the screen you are viewing it on. We're still working on adding course content which will appear over the coming weeks, but we wanted to launch the new design.
