How is this studied?

The courses are designed to be delivered digitally, using virtual meeting software (GoToMeeting), and each course is supported by a dedicated padlet, which contains a full transcript of the webinar. Each course is designed to take around 60 minutes, including Q&A, and there is scope for follow up questions to be answered via email after the session.

How do I access this?

Before your course starts,  you will be emailed with a welcome pack containing the link to the virtual meeting, the link to the padlet, the password for the padlet, and instructions for anything that you may need to get ready before the session starts.

Are there any technology requirements for me to do the courses?

The courses have been written for Google Chrome, so you will need to use Chrome as your browser for these courses. You will also need to have a reasonable internet speed. If your organisation doesn’t have a good internet speed, please let us know in advance so we can organise alternative means of delivering the courses.
