What to expect
We limit numbers to 16 people per course so that the instructor can keep people safe and supported while they learn. Young people are welcome on the course but if you’re under the age of 16 we need consent from your parent or guardian.

Learning takes place through a mix of presentations, group discussions and workshop activities.

When you complete the course you will get:
