Fantastic prices on daytime courses at Bradford College

I am teaching several daytime courses for Bradford College starting next week
and they are unusual in that they have been externally funded so they are
FANTASTICALLY reasonably priced!

This does not mean that they are any worse than other full price courses, so if
you're interested, or if you know someone who is, get in touch with the college
or pass it on.

The 12 week beginners course is almost full, but the improvers course (not
difficult to do if you have a basic idea of what you're doing) still has plenty
of spaces. If you want to ask about the course content & whether it's suitable
for you get in touch with me direct, but to enrol contact the college.

The following are lifted from the college online prospectus ( they really know
how to do a hard sell)
