We are offering 1-1 sessions via phone, Skype or Teams. If you already have a mentor, contact them through the usual means. If this will be your first appointment, call 01772 895950 to arrange an online meeting.
Workshops are also still going ahead. Register as usual. On the day you will receive a link to the online classroom.
