We offer the full range of courses from Absolute Beginner to full Professional Qualification.

How can we help You? Our aim is to offer you a flexible study programme to suit your own requirements.

You also have the option to combine with more advanced (click here) courses, saving yourself time and money.

  • Weekend Courses are ongoing cycles which you can join anytime and start at 10 am and 2 pm on the Third Saturday of the month (except bank holiday weekends.)

  • Afternoon Courses are ongoing cycles and run every Thursday 2.30 to 5.30 pm - Join any Thursday
