Start and finish times

Each delegate is provided with use of a computer, setup with the latest version of the software they are learning. Our York centre has a mix of Mac and PC's, so if you have a preference please advise us when booking. Older versions of software can usually be catered for on request.

If delegates prefer to work in their own environment and would rather bring their own laptop that is equally fine.


Hot drinks and bottled water is provided throughout the day together with a selection of biscuits and sweets.  There is a scheduled 15 minute break mid morning and again mid afternoon.


There is a one hour break for lunch to allow delegates some time "off the screen".  Our centre is located on the well known Bishy Road in York, with a wide range of popular cafe's just a few metres from the front door. The street regularly features in national newspapers and has been described by Wall Street Journal as "an enclave of gourmet delis and cafes" while The Times described it as "York's answer to Notting Hill".
