The programme comes highly recommended from previous participants and is fully funded including travel less a £750 contribution from the participant’s credit union.

*A note about delivery for 2020-21*

We have had to make some tweaks to the order and delivery of some elements of the programme for this year but we are confident we can still deliver the quality programme that is expected. All applicants are asked to hold the evening of Monday 18th May and all day on Tuesday 19th May for the first programme meeting which will be held online.

We have included dates in the attached programme for the June programme meeting but if this is not possible then we will move to the 22nd and 23rd September  or 27th and 28th November and so applicants are asked to hold these dates for now until we can confirm.  

October dates will be confirmed in consultation with programme participants in May 2020.
