There is a taster day running on Friday 14th September from 11.00 – 13.00 at  the Town Hall in Maidenhead which will give you a bit more insight into what the course covers and help you decide if  the course is suitable for you. You can meet the tutors and ask questions before deciding if the course  is for you. You can submit your applications here or email  them across if you cannot make the taster day.
