We understand that people lead busy lives and have other commitments. Missing one session isn’t usually a problem, unless it’s the first session. Missing more than one session is not ideal.

We do provide online materials for revision which can normally be used to catchup should you miss a session.

As part of the learning experience, you will be expected to do homework between the classes. This is all done online with the ability to check your answers and get additional support.
