We’re here to support you during this uncertain period of time. We have adjusted our normal training sessions to bring you a virtual training programme, designed to fit around your day and all completely online.

We are running three or more training sessions per week, and all our lockdown learning is CPD-accredited, so join us at one of our:

  • Virtual workshops (1-2 hours): These sessions will be like our normal workshops with interactive activities planned in for all participants (attendee numbers will be capped to keep learning as interactive as possible).
  • Lunch n learns (30 mins-1 hour): These sessions are designed to fit around your daily routine so you can focus your learning and build your knowledge around particular areas.
  • Business bytes (1.5-2 hours): We will host a range of speakers to talk about specific projects, frameworks or topics and how clients and contractors are asking you to respond to their strategies.
