A few words form our Managing Director – Darren Shelton

Further to the Prime Minister’s statement to the nation on 23 March 2020 and the restrictions put in place by the British Government and Worldwide, we have decided to advise that we will now pause all booked face-to-face training for the foreseeable future.

While the British government have not released specific guidance for our industry, we feel that this can help to slow the spread of COVID-19 as much as possible. Our aim up until this time has been to continue to teach important skills in the safest way possible. While this message is exceptionally difficult to give, we are in unprecedented times and the safety and welfare of attending delegates and that of our own staff is paramount!

We can confirm, that we will resume business as usual at the earliest opportunity and reschedule any cancelled dates once we have been given the all clear. Should it be required we can still be contacted on our mobiles whilst we of course, observe the relevant guidance on social distancing and we are adapt to home working.
