Enrolment is binding. Our courses are intended for persons aged 16 years or older.

Course enrolment starts at 12:00 noon, staggered based on the subject area. Once enrolment begins, you can enrol for courses as long as there are places available.

Lesson cancellations and changes

Replacement lessons may be held during unusual hours or at different locations.

We reserve the right to change the teaching location or teacher.

If a course is cancelled due to low enrolment numbers, we will notify the students of the cancellation.
