With online webinars the expectation is that learners will attend all of these in person- whilst we will aim to record sessions it is not possible to guarantee this.
Due to the way the courses are organised, it is not possible to attend elements on different courses from that booked onto. Missed sections may result in additional fees to complete the qualification. Full terms and conditions can be found here.
Access to a computer
Classroom elements will be delivered by zoom, whilst this can be accessed on any device, you should also consider where you will be (eg at home in a quiet space) to ensure you get the best from the sessions
All learners must be able to access a suitable internet connected device during the course. The Learning Hub can be accessed, via tablet, mac, pc and smart phones.
