We also run in-house training throughout the school year and you may be able to join us for this (designed especially for schools requiring training for individuals or small groups) or we also can provide training in your own school for larger groups of staff.

We do need to charge for training and you can find more information about what we can provide in our brochure.

If you need training on something that isn’t included in the brochure please contact us at as we may still be able to help.
