Online School Training Support

These remote zoom sessions, starting in January 2021 and rolling through the school year, are provided to give our school customers access to relevant, regular and frequent online training sessions. They are free to attend* with, on average, a capacity of eight people per course.  You may "send" as many  staff to these sessions as you wish, and you may attend more than once on any particular session as a refresher for as long as these courses run.

Note: If earlier events are full, you will probably find further sessions for the same course later in the month.

All registrations will be verified to ensure correct details and to ensure security.

*For schools with an ongoing support subscription
