The first session will take place on 27th January, at DWF offices in Birmingham City Centre. The session will last two hours and students will be transported there and back free of charge in the school mini bus. The remaining five sessions will take place on a monthly basis, in school, during the school day. At the end of the course, in June, students will take part in a graduation awards ceremony evening, which you will also be invited to attend.
