Due to the Coronavirus we have decided to postpone the training course initially planned for Thursday 19th March to Thursday 3rd September 2020. If, at that time the virus is still active and causing people to work from home we shall change the course from being face to face to being online. We shall keep in contact with the venue who will investigate if they are able to provide online services that day for anyone who can’t connect online from home. If you have any queries please get in touch with the trainer for more details.

In the meantime, if you are keen to take part in intergenerational training you may like to consider our seven week online course which commences on Tuesday 28th April 2020. Click here for more details.
