It is our intention that this cohort will proceed on the above dates. We will assess the Covid-19 situation prior to each workshop and then take a decision as to whether the content will be delivered face to face or remotely. Please note that either way these study days are compulsory so please arrange to be released from your workplace for a full day to attend.
We will do our utmost to ensure that your learning experience is not compromised in any way and are thinking hard about novel ways to deliver our teaching going forward. If you have any queries please do contact a member of the team via firstname.lastname@example.org and we can then arrange a telephone call if necessary to discuss any more complex issues.
