If for any reason you refuse to sign this on the day you will not be allowed to attend and train with us you will waive the right to a refund of your course for all monies paid including the deposit.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Guidance

5 March 2020

Personal Message from Sue Bailey - Director/Founder
Gateway Workshops LTD


COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Guidance - Update 19th March


With a heavy heart we are closing Gateway on Friday 20th March at 5pm, temporarily until further notice. We very much hope to re-open again in May, so students can still book courses on the website for later dates and if those don’t go ahead for any reason (due to the coronavirus) then we can transfer you again if anyone needs to.

IMPORTANT - ALL students can now choose any date they want to when transferring (not just June or July) to minimise stress when you transfer so you have plenty of choice. We want to thank you for all of your loyalty as I know many of you still wanted to attend our classes but we feel this is now the right thing to do, to keep everyone safe.

Please, however, do re-book for a later date so we can keep trading and our amazing and wonderful tutors keep their jobs!

We need your continued support to keep a school built 20 years ago by passion and love going and not be lost and keep our wonderful dedicated tutors in work.

We hope you will support us all in this and follow the lead of other old and new students supporting us by choosing a later date this year to attend instead of cancelling and also booking a new one in the future at a venue or take the time out if you are having to self isolate and choose one of our popular online courses and learn in the comfort of your own home.

Thank you for your understanding, commitment and support during these unprecedented times - stay well everyone x

We will continue to monitor the official guidance, and should this be updated,  we will make the necessary changes.

We will continue to monitor this official guidance, and should this be updated,  we will make the necessary changes. Gateway Workshops asks learners to follow the current advice which is available here
