Group Leader

All training courses are currently suspended
As we have now taken the decision to cancel all group activities, it means we have unfortunately had to take the decision to suspend all training courses, initially until August 31st.
We hope to be able to deliver training courses after the end of August, once government advice permits us to.
Please get in touch with the Training Team if you have any queries about future courses or current bookings.
