I have loved every second of this course, I have acquired life-changing skills, I don’t want it to end.  The learning experience has been enriching, supportive, wonderful.

***COVID update 29 November 2021***

Following the UK Governments’ tightening of restrictions from 4am on Tuesday 30 November, we would like to reassure you that we are still open as usual and continue to follow all Government guidance. Throughout the pandemic, our COVID safety measures have always gone above and beyond what the Government requires as a minimum, and so we are confident that we operate as safe a place as possible for students, clients and staff alike.

We would ask everyone attending BCMB to take an LFT test before arriving, and if the result is positive or if you have any Covid symptoms then please do not attend but call for advice.
