Before the course begins you'll be asked questions about your general health to make sure that the course is suitable for you. If you are pregnant we advise that you speak to your doctor before starting this course.
There may be materials you need to help with your studies. You'll either make a one-off payment for these when you enrol, or you'll buy them during the course. Your tutor will talk to you about this at interview or in your first class (if you don't need an interview).
Depending on your course and circumstances, you may be able to get funding to help with materials fees. Please check with us when you come in for interview or enrolment.
You can move onto the same course the following term to develop your skills further. You may wish to carry on learning and practicing for many years and apply it to everyday life. It's also possible to practice with a group locally during the summer break.
