We have successfully moved our teaching online in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. It is our hope to return to face-to-face delivery of workshops (in Bath) as soon as we can following University and Government guidelines. All dates remain the same whether face-to-face or virtual and these are compulsory. Please ensure you can attend all dates and share with your workplace to ensure you can attend before you apply for this unit.
