Training Update:  

The safety of staff and learners is our priority.  Given the current and developing situation around the coronavirus pandemic, our face-to-face courses are currently postponed.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience.  Regular updates will be posted here and on our social media pages. 

If you were scheduled to attend a course, you or your line manager will receive an email offering an alternative course date at the earliest opportunity.  Reallocation will be dealt with in a priority order to cover those overdue from March 2020 onwards. If you would like to book on a course please email: with details of the course you would like to book onto.  We will contact you once bookings re-open.

In planning to return to classroom training, we are following all Scottish Government guidelines and implementing any  necessary public health measures. 

Find out what you can expect when you do face to face training with us.
