Although your place is secure, you must complete the application form as part of the registration process. Please follow the instructions below to finalise your registration.
Please do not book any travel or accommodation yet
To avoid any inconvenience, we recommend not booking any travel or accommodation for attending the School in person until you have received confirmation that your application has been accepted. Additionally, please ensure that you have read and understood our Terms and Conditions, which can be found here: Terms & Conditions.
In-person Course Hours
In-person courses are run from 10 am – 6 pm.
However, DO NOT book any socialising as visits are sometimes an hour or so drive away, and we often socialise if there is somewhere nice to eat.
Your next steps are below.

|1: Book Your Interview
Book a conversation
Please note: if you have already had an interview with Vanessa and you have been gifted an award or a bursary, then you don't need to speak to her again.
Why do you need a conversation with Vanessa?
There are several reasons for this conversation. Firstly, we want to ensure that you choose the right modules and understand how our program works. As a social enterprise, we have certain obligations to ensure that you are suitable to attend our courses. We must also comply with legal obligations and restrictions regarding who we can teach. Our priority is to make sure you can complete the syllabus without any harm. For example, you would not be able to participate in the course if you have been diagnosed with a wheat allergy.
We believe it's crucial for you to have a conversation with Vanessa, as this provides an opportunity to ask any questions you may have and address any concerns directly. We also want to ensure that you get the most out of the course. The conversation with Vanessa allows us to understand better your goals, expectations, and background, which in turn helps us tailor your experience to your specific needs. By discussing your objectives and any concerns, we can guide you in making the most of the resources, support, and learning opportunities provided throughout the course.
Vanessa is also available every Thursday for Students to speak to. There is an open clinic at 4pm and then afterwards she is available from 5pm to speak privately by appointment on zoom. Please email if you are attending as a new student to reserve a spot.
