We run a variety of courses in a variety of formats –some weekend only, some mid-week, some a mix of the two etc. We ensure that we run the variety of formats and courses across the county throughout the year and attendance may require flexibility from each learner i.e. travel further afield within the county to get the dates best suited or be flexible on dates to attend at preferred venue. Whilst we try to provide as many options to our volunteers as possible we are restricted to how we deliver courses due to tutor and facility availability.
