Business, technology and skills for work

After the summer break, autumn can be a great time to professionally refocus and enhance your skills for work.

Whether you're planning to start a new business, want to make that next step in your career, or simply want to become more tech savvy to meet the needs of the modern workplace, we're running tasters in blogging, developing business plansCV writing and tips for cracking social media.

Health, lifestyle and personal development

Aid your personal development on our health and lifestyle tasters this autumn, including tips on strengthening your intuition and problem solving, guidance on how a 'can do attitute' can help recalibrate your life, and a introductory look at cognitive-based therapy.

If you're looking to improve your overall fitness, discover Shiatsu, take a journey of discovery through the chakras, and learn about brain food on a nutrition course.

We've also got great food and drink courses to get you in the festive spirit in November and December - with Christmas beer tasting, advice on buying fantastic fizz and the chance to indulge yourself in some Chocolate tasting.
