Covid-19 Statement: We have modified our approach to course delivery to meet the challenges posed by Covid-19.  Course delivery has been redesigned so as to include a mixture of online and face-to-face delivery and make the course more resilient to any future lockdowns, etc. This means that face-to-face teaching module dates as listed in the Course Information Pack may change in the event of any future lockdown. We will of course try to keep any disruption to the course timescales to a minimum. If you have any specific queries about this in the meantime, please contact us.

Please see our standards and regulation page for information on how our courses fit with the current moves towards regulation of professional barefoot trimming.
