Coronavirus Update

Updated 5th January 2021

In light of the latest lockdown restrictions all face-to-face professional development course delivery (in schools and conferencing venues) has been suspended until the end of the Spring Term. The situation will be reviewed regularly regarding course delivery after the Easter holidays.

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. All delegates booked onto a face to face course will be automatically transferred to the online equivalent and will be contacted via email to advise of the relevant zoom codes. Please advise us if you will be unable to attend the online training course. 

No cancellation charges will apply for any places booked on courses due to take place prior to half term, 15th February, however we would really appreciate it if you could advise us that you will not be attending any booked training.

Please email lpds@lancashire.gov.uk or phone 01257 516100.
