The majority of our courses are designed so that you will gain the skills and confidence required to enable you to join WYPW as a member, and use the facilities on an open-access basis.

 Here are a few examples of what people have said about our courses:

“It far surpassed my expectations and at the risk of appearing overly effusive inspired and I think empowered me!”

“The facilities are superb and I really appreciate that the WYPW offers you the possibility to continue working on your own as well.”

“I can’t overstate how helpful this course has been. WYPW is a precious facility.”
