Your learning experience is our priority. We work on a strict trainer to student span of control / ratio of 1 to 12. Therefore course groups tend to be small and focused.

Ours is focused learning ensuring each delegate receives the appropriate level of course input and training.
Optimum course numbers are between 8 and 12 students however course numbers can vary in size. As we teach in small groups and run monthly courses we always guarantee to run all our scheduled courses.

If your situation deteriorates we may be unable to offer you a refund due to the cancellation policy we have in place to protect the course and remaining groups of students.
We all want to avoid these situations so our advice is if in any doubt do not commit to a course and seek the advice of a GP.
Where someone suffers with a long term health ailment if their health worsens in the lead up to the course we will always do our best to re allocate you a space on a future course where we can.
