Course and Events Book 2021, changes to course book

The new course book has now been published. However there are some changes to the Upper North Section of the course book that you need to be aware of.

CHANGES TO CURRENT COURSES

Because of  evolving Covid-19 situation, some changes have occurred since the Course Book went to print in December. For example some courses were listed as face to face but have since changed to zoom.

Click on the link of the side bar, Courses — Face to Face and Courses — via Zoom and email for the latest status of Upper North courses.

A Covid-19 safe plan for venues has been prepared for when we return to face to face teaching.
