There is a nominal cost for Summer School of £400 which covers a contribution to learning costs for the event. The cost of accommodation and food for the week is covered but delegates travel costs will not be met by the programme.

Summer School is developed as a week-long immersive experience and as such it is important that all delegates attend the whole week’s learning to gain maximum benefit. Furthermore, it will be necessary to attend each day in order to work towards one of the accreditation options. Priority will be given to those applicants who are able to fully commit to the experience.

Please note that should you be awarded a place at Summer School and then withdraw from the programme, your organisation may be required to pay the full cost.
