Since EOS Training Academy was merged with EOS magazine's Photoworkshop programme in 2015, we've steadily increased the availability and coverage of our workshop programme.

These classroom-based courses are held in a variety of locations, including our original venue – the 400-year old Dovecote that's part of EOS HQ in Oxfordshire. Here's what you need to know about each venue, its location and its accessibility.

If you need someone to support you during your training workshop (e.g. a carer), we are happy to accommodate. Please give us a call when you are ready to book. There is no charge for your carer; however please note that lunch is only provided for the person booked onto the course.

EOSmag Tackley sqThis unique building, home to EOS Training Academy and on the same site as EOS magazine, is a three-storey Grade II listed pigeon house. The classroom is on the ground floor of the Dovecote, but has narrow doorways leading into the building. The toilets are located on the first floor, as is the break-out area for lunch and refreshments. There is no disabled toilet at present – this is under review, but with the nature of this old and historic building, options are limited. There are other toilets with step-free access in other buildings on-site which are available to use, should you be unable to navigate the stairs, and staff are on-hand to assist with lunch and refreshments.

The Dovecote is unsuitable if you have limited mobility or are in a wheelchair – if you're unsure and would like further advice.

There's free parking on-site and lunch is included in your course.

Canon Reigate workshopThis stunning site on the edges of Reigate is home to Canon UK and we're delighted to be able to continue to run our workshop programme at this location in 2018. The purpose-built head office fuses visually stunning architecture with the latest in business solutions technology. The environmentally friendly building is landscaped to blend into the natural slope of a hill, preserving existing meadowland and tree areas. We take advantage of the beautiful surroundings during some of our workshops, where practical elements enhance the course delivery.

Canon HQ offers full disabled access and facilities. However, we are required to give advance notice of accessibility requirements to Canon, so please let us know of your needs at the time of booking.

Parking at Canon HQ is free. Lunch is included in your workshop.

Canon RCC ElstreeCanon's service centre in Elstree, Borehamwood is located just inside the M25. The repair team moved to this facility in 2015 in order to improve its service and efficiency levels. We began running workshops at Elstree in mid-2017.

The classroom at Elstree is located on the first floor which is only accessible by stairs. Unfortunately that makes this location unsuitable for wheelchair users and those with limited mobility.

There's free parking at the rear of the service centre for day visitors and you'll get a light lunch as part of your course.

Here's what's coming up shortly at Canon Elstree >

Nene Valley RailwayNene Valley Railway Centre is our new workshop venue for 2018. We're excited to be able to bring the classroom programme back to EOS Training Academy's old stomping ground in Cambridgeshire, to meet up again with old friends and new acquaintances in the east of England.

Your day is split across the site at Nene Valley Railway, as we start off in the café before heading into the classroom. This involves travelling a little distance across the railway line between the two buildings, but there is step-free access to the entire site and disabled toilets in the café area (note that there are no toilets in the classroom building). Therefore this location is suitable for wheelchair users, but if you have limited mobility please be aware that you will have to walk beween buildlings a few times during the day.

You can park for free on-site at Nene Valley Railway and lunch is provided as part of your course.
