Courses, conferences & Seminars

Further courses will be added during the year.

New Clerks course - we do not currently have a New Clerks course available, however we are keeping a waiting list of clerks who would like to attend this course. Please advise us at if you wish to be added to the list; as soon as we have sufficient interest to run a course, we will contact you with details. New Clerks courses are usually held in the morning; please include in your email whether morning or evening training would be most appropriate for you.
