How to Enrol

We offer a number of routes to enrol or apply for a place on the courses we run. We recommend early sign up to courses to guarantee your space and so that we can guarantee that courses reach their numbers to be run.

Over the last year we have invested in improving our online service and encourage the use of this secure method of signing up to a course. We are constantly developing our software to assist our learners' enrolment experience.
