Workshop Levels

It is important that students are learning at the appropriate level. Ultimately, class allocations will be at the collaborative discretion of teachers and the event director. Whilst it is good for students to be challenged, no one benefits from students attending workshops at a level they are simply not ready for. The safety of students and the provision of a quality learning environment for all attendees will be prioritised. Any questions we will be happy to help and we will always provide a clear rationales for our decisions.
