Revision tutorials

In recognition of the widespread disruption caused by Covid-19 and the resultant delay in holding the Distance Learning Programme exams we will be holding, for the first time in our history, a series of online revision tutorials, which will take place in our virtual mill.

Each tutorial will focus on particular aspects of the syllabus, as well as tips for improving performance in the forthcoming examinations. The tutorials will run for between one and two hours and be led by one or more of our course tutors.

The tutors will be inviting students to these sessions but for more information or to sign up, contact  You will need to install the virtual mill on your pc, well in advance of the tutorials.  This takes a little time, so don't delay; for instructions, head straight to our flour milling training website.
