We are experiencing a really high demand for our courses. Our small team of staff are working really hard to respond to each enrolment as quickly as they can.

If the course you enrol for is full; you will be placed on a waiting list for any future courses in that subject.

In addition to some of our ongoing courses, we have now added lots of exciting new online courses aimed at supporting you during the Covid-19 crisis.  These include:

  • How to enhance your nature photos
  • Jewellery design
  • Painting and drawing
  • Cooking simple meals

To be eligible to enrol on up to 2 courses (maximum) you need to live in Derby (Derby postcode).
