Training Course Reservations

Please note that sessions will only be run if there are at least four delegates booked; we will give at least one week's notice if a session has to be cancelled due to low bookings. All of the sessions are planned to run at the SALC office.

Please ensure that all bookings are made through the office. It may be necessary to turn away any councillor or clerk who turns up without booking due to limited space.

All income generated from training fees goes back into delivering our core services to members.

If you have any specific requirements please contact the office in advance of the event and we will endeavour to accommodate your request.

Please note that only basic refreshments (i.e. tea, coffee and biscuits) will be provided unless otherwise specified in the training schedule.

If you wish to cancel your booking please give at least one weeks notice to avoid being charged in full. In the event of any emergency on the day please telephone the office.
