The Small Print

For Live Online Interactive Learning sessions (webinars)

The course will run remotely for a half-day consisting of two 90-minute live online sessions with independent work in between. 

All learners will need to either install Zoom on their machines or use the Web App in a browser (either Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge are supported). Your link will be included in your joining instructions once you have booked your place — if you haven't received this email then please contact our team.

Learners should log into the training session 10 minutes before the start time to ensure that they have downloaded and set up Zoom correctly. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.

Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera – if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.
