Coronavirus Update

Updated 24th September 2020

Lancashire County Council is adhering to COVID- 19 Government stipulations regarding the suspension of its face to face professional development course delivery until the 1st January 2021.    The situation will be reviewed regularly regarding course delivery from January 2021 and schools and delegates contacted accordingly.

It is our intention to deliver as much of our course programme as possible via video conferencing platforms at the same date and time as advertised in venues and we will be in touch with delegates directly regarding arrangements for this. 

Please check our online course provision here.

NEW Terms & Conditions

Please note - From the 1st September 2019 our cancellation policy will be changing to twenty-one days before the start of the course. This applies to all existing bookings made before the new academic year.
