COVID-19 Update

Unfortunately, we’ve had to postpone upcoming trainings due to the current COVID-19 lockdown. All face-to-face trainings have been cancelled for the remainder of this term and will commence next term when it is once again safe to meet. Our national office team will update you with training details as they come to hand.

We are all working from home. Please call your Regional Coordinator or 0800 693 323 if you need support.
