  • The induction for new starters would normally have been held in October 2020.  It has been moved to spring 2021 in the hope of holding an in-person event.
  • The DTP training programme will continue to be adapted to meet the ongoing requirements of lockdown and COVID restrictions.
  • More details, including specific dates and how to book, will be added as each course is firmed up.
