Leaders in Cheshire are eligible to attend the training courses free of charge. However once booked your place is reserved and “freezes out” other Leaders who might wish to attend the training modules. Therefore if you need to cancel your reserved place you must give at least 10 days notice and we reserve the right to charge you for none attendance. Please bear in mind that venues, resources and catering may have already been committed.


If you wish to attend the Residential Experience course in either May or September, then you need to make sure you are available for the preparation session and the whole weekend

These courses are very popular therefore only reserve a place if you are sure you can commit to the full course length and are prepared to attend all the sessions
