BOOKING A COURSE You don't always need to pre-book Skills Builder Courses, but we recommend that you do as places very often sell out on our popular courses. We have a limited number of spaces on each course so our staff can ensure every child taking part gets maximum attention. Skills builder courses can be added to any week long booking during both Easter and summer.
