Courses

Ann, our courses co-ordinator provides us with an excellent and varied programme of Saturday/weekend courses throughout a normal year. We are lucky that a number of our excellent tutors are also members of the group. Ann bring in other tutors for specialist courses, here is a bit about each of our regular tutors.

A number of members paid course deposits and fees before we had to suspend courses; this money is being held for those who requested it. Money has been returned to the bank accounts of those who asked for their money back.

Our course fees for a 2 day courses are as follows:

MemberNon-member
Standard course£45Members fee + £5 surcharge
Specialist Course*£50Members fee +£10 surcharge
* Currently Claire Bonito’s course is our only Specialist course

All places on courses are for the full course, we will only consider part places such as one day only if there are still spaces once all those wanting a full weekend place have a place. The maximum number of students on all our courses is 14.

If you you have COVID when a course is due to take place we won’t cash your course fees cheque. If anyone in your household has COVID when a course is due to take place for the protection of all attendees we ask that you don’t attend a course, again we will not cash your course fee cheque. In the case of a split course if your were unable to attend for COVID related issues we will issue a credit of a day against future courses.

Our upcoming courses are as follows (clinic on the tutors name to find out more about each course):

To book a course members should first contact Ann (details in Pillow Talk) to see if there are still places available. Non NCLG members interested in attending please fill in the form on the Contact us page and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Currently we are only accepting cheque payments for courses, no payments direct to the bank account please. One cheque per course please with your name and the course on the back. Cheques should be for the full course amount and can be postdated to the date of the course. If COVID means we have to cancel a course your cheque will be destroyed.

Once we are a bit more confident of courses running we will revert to deposits and balance payments.

Payments/balances are due the NCLG meeting before a course takes place unless otherwise stated.
