The main site for our training takes place at our head office in Central Birmingham, Digbeth, (walking distance from New Street Station) for groups of up to 16 people.
We are unable to accomodate for any numbers above this at our premises, so we are happy to go out to organisations to deliver in-house training to suit the amount of people it is required for.
We are able to adapt courses to meet your individual organisation requirments. If you want to focus on a particular area we can adapt the training for you.
This bespoke package allows you to hold the course at a time, date and place that best suits your needs, anywhere in England. We aim to meet your requests, to make it easy as possible for you. Get in touch today.
