Foundation programme - enrolment now open!

Thank you so much to everyone who has signed up to our Introductory programme so far. We have been delighted to welcome our first cohort of students and to be working with them as they study towards City & Guilds accreditation. The Introductory programme is a rolling enrolment so you can join any time – you can find out more below.

After what feels like an eternity, enrolment for the Foundation programme is now open. You can find out more, download the prospectus and enrol on the information page here. If you would like to know more or would like to discuss whether the Foundation or Introductory programmes are for you, I’d be delighted to help. Please email me at or give me a call on the contact number below.
