We are delighted to say that our courses up to Sunday 11th December 2022 are now full. For the college this is a great position for us to be in, however, we realise you may find this disappointing if you wanted to come on a course before Christmas and haven't yet applied.
Please take a look at our brochure below to see what courses we have from January to April and of course you can find out more information, and apply, on this website.
For people who have already applied for a December course either through the website or by filling in a paper enrolment form, please bear with us and we will get in touch with you soon. You may still be able to do your December course.
