We are now only running private 1:1, pairs or small group sessions rather than run public courses as we have found this works better as we can be more flexible with dates.  We can tailor the syllabus of your private session to include topics covered by this course. 

Note: If you have a valid Gift Voucher for a 1/2 day course, please contact us, we will convert it to a private session for you.
