About the training:
This 3 weekend training has been well received in previous years at York, Hull, and Edinburgh.
We will update with further information as we develop the 2021 programme
Please feel free to express interest NOW , and we would contact you as arrangements become clearer and bookings open
Full price for the course is £550 with an Early Bird price of £500 Available up to mid December.
Other discounts may be available
We hope to run the course as usual for 2021 but possibly augmented by our rapidly gained experience with video meeting which could reduce the face to face contact .
At the moment we are outlining our usual core structure which is three weekends in Edinburgh. However, it seems certain that a good deal of it will be done virtually via zoom or similar techniques. We can send presentations ahead and have discussions on zoom. This is what we have had to do for module 3 this year..

This is being kept under constant review and we are sure you will understand that the 2021 course may look considerably diffierent acording to how events unfold .
We will update this entry and keep those who have expressed interest informed of significant changes
