  • External delegates will be charged £30pp for attending training unless stated otherwise

*Extenuating circumstances may be considered on an individual basis.

The following guidelines have been developed to ensure that every individual attending a course is able to contribute, participate and benefit from the learning:

  • Anyone arriving 20 minutes following the start of any course without prior agreement may be asked to rebook whether this is face to face or virtually (at the facilitator’s discretion).
  • Delegates are expected to arrive 15 minutes before the start of a face-to-face course to register and access any available refreshments.
  • If you need to cancel your booked place on training, please let us and your manager know as soon as possible so that we can cancel your allocated place.
  • For virtual training there is an expectation that delegates turn their cameras on and their microphones on mute (unless you need to speak) this supports the facilitators to engage with the delegates similar to a face-to-face course.
  • Some virtual training with large numbers of attendees performs better when your camera is off to reduce delays, but your facilitator will advise you of this.
