We’ve Trained Thousands of Students With Our Accredited Courses


We’re Still In The Classroom 🙂 – Update November 2020


Following the government’s announcement on Saturday 31 October we have confirmation that education providers offering nationally regulated qualifications are to remain open throughout the national lockdown period.

ITEC have confirmed that ITEC Practical and Theory Examinations will go ahead as planned during November and December.

Our classes for our ITEC Massage, Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Sports Massage Diploma Courses will therefore continue to take place as scheduled.

We restarted our in-classroom teaching on 4 July 2020 with enhanced protocols in place so that students can undertake and complete their professional qualifications in a safe environment.  If you would like to know more about the measures that have been put in place please email info@richdales.co.uk.

The first groups of students who commenced their Diploma Courses in July (after the initial lockdown) have now completed their ITEC Diploma Courses and will be receiving their Diplomas soon.
