UK update following the Government announcement 04/01/2021

In light of the recent announcement by the UK Government regarding the national lockdown, UK training providers will not be delivering courses for the time being.

Training providers will continue to review the latest regulations, guidelines and advice and will advise trainees accordingly.

For trainees booked onto courses w/c 04/01/2021: your training provider will have been in touch to update you on what is happening with your course.

For trainees booked onto courses between 11/01/2021 and 21/02/2021: your training provider will be in touch in due course to update you and go through your options. Please be assured that they will be in touch as soon as they can and also with enough time for you to alter plans if necessary.

For trainees booked onto courses after 21/02/2021: at the time of writing we will look to resume course delivery by the February half term. All updates and any changes to this will be made on this page, and your training provider will be in touch in due course to update you on whether your course is still due to take place. Please be assured that they will be in touch as soon as they can and also with enough time for you to alter plans if necessary.

For those booked onto courses which have to be re-scheduled you will be informed of the new dates. If you're unable to make the new dates then you will likely be able to move your booking to another available date or arrange a refund with your training provider.

For trainees looking to book onto future courses: We are experiencing high demand at the moment and with courses planned for January and February needing to be re-scheduled it is unlikely that course spaces will be availble for a number of months, or at least until any re-arrangements are concluded. We ask that you bear this in mind before contacting training providers at this current time.

If you would like to register your interest for future courses then do still email your chosen training provider about any queries and also keep up to date with the latest information through this page, the training provider websites and social media accounts.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.


In line with official information and advice we have put in place safety and social distancing measures within our workshops to keep attendees and staff safe from the spread of COVID-19. Before attending, trainees should read the guidelines surrounding these measures and adhere to them whilst on the courses. Details of these guidelines can be found here.


Course Safety Measures

Training providers may also have extra, training provider specific guidelines so it is advised that attendees check with their chosen training provider as well.

We ask that everyone keeps up to date with and follows official advice (see links below) with regards to increased general cleanliness, washing hands regularly, covering a cough or a sneeze with a tissue (and disposing of the tissue immediately) or your sleeve, and self-isolating if showing any symptoms.

If you or anyone you are living with are currently self-isolating or showing any coronavirus symptoms such as a high temperature or a cough then please do not attempt to attend any of our courses. Please also do not attempt to attend any of our courses if you or anyone you are living with are in a high risk category. If either of these are the case and you have a course booking please get in touch with your training provider to discuss your options.

For those currently in countries or territories where stay at home instructions are in place, PLEASE STAY AT HOME.
