Coronavirus – Covid-19

In these unprecedented times BRIEF has decided to suspend our own training programme until the end of August 2020.

Coronavirus – Covid-19 part 2

Over the next few days BRIEF will contact all those who have booked on our courses between now and the end of May outlining the possibilities.
