Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I access the webinar sessions?
We use a platform that makes viewing our webinar series simple, whether you are watching on a computer, smartphone or tablet.
For how long will I be able to access and replay the webinar?
You can watch the webinars live as they are broadcast, but if you cannot attend at the live time, or want to watch again, then you can access the webinar at anytime (for up to 1-year) by signing in via the link we will send for each series.
Can I replay the webinars to my colleagues?
We are happy for you to share the webinar session with colleagues, for professional development purposes within schools or colleges only. They are designed to be shared within staff meetings, or professional development sessions. If you would like further advice or consultancy about any of the training or courses that we offer, then please contact us by clicking here.
What does the payment (if applicable) cover?
We are determined to keep the cost for access to webinars as cheap as possible, as we understand that many educators may dip into their own pockets to pay for access. We have to charge a small fee to cover our expenses in using the platform for the webinar, as well as the time in compiling the resources and production costs involved. Some of our cheaper webinar session may contain product placement, but this will be explicitly explained as the webinar commences, and our only intention in allowing this is to keep the costs down to educators.
