There has been variability in attendance on some of our courses, which can impact the quality of delivery and lead to cancellations. We ask that you let us know if you are no longer able to attend a course so that we can offer your place to someone else on the waiting list. In some cases, your line manager may be notified, where we have no record of a cancellation.
