Policy on Full Classes

Limits have to be placed on some classes because of the nature of the activity, availability of room space, facilities and equipment or the ability of the tutor to assist the number of students.
As an organisation, we have made the decision to give priority to existing students. However, the situation changes constantly and classes operate a waiting list. If you would like to be considered for a class, should a vacancy arise, please leave your contact details at any enrolment session or contact us by telephone or email.
Where groups have a waiting list, if a member does not attend for three consecutive meetings without informing the tutor, they may be deemed no longer to wish to attend that group.
