Level 4 and 5 Inductions will resume from the beginning of October. There are two inductions for Level 4 and three for Level 5. see below for more info about these.

From October 2022, inductions can be booked in advance in two ways:

  1. In-person inductions, led by the technician. These inductions will start promptly at 10am on Tuesday mornings (Level 4) and Friday mornings (Level 5).
  2. It will also be possible to book the inductions during any afternoon that the workshop is open but these will involve following an online version of the inductions. For this method, students should bring their own laptop or similar device to watch the online induction tutorial on.

To book any of these inductions please contact your course tutor for the booking links.
