Can’t find dates to suit you?
We can offer a “pick your own dates” service for an additional small fee ( full price for courses using this service shown above). Ideal for shift workers and busy parents with childcare challenges and those wishing to take annual leave to complete intensive training where we are not already offering a course, we will work with you to create your ideal schedule.
Please note that, once you have selected the dates that work for you, we reserve the right to advertise those dates to other students, although numbers will always be low.
We can also offer a completely bespoke, one to one course on the dates and over the duration to suit your personal requirements. This allows you to come into College exactly when it suits you and receive the individual attention of your tutor, although models will still be used for you to practice on, of course.
This tailored solution can be surprisingly cost effective as training is often delivered over a shorter time scale due to the personalised nature of it.
Please contact us to discuss this option.
