How the Course works:


We’ll send you a login link which can be opened on your laptop, mobile smartphone, computer or tablet. All you need to do is find somewhere comfortable and quiet!

You’ll spend the training day (9.30-4.30) in our virtual classroom with your Trainer. The teaching methods are a mixture of lecture, group work, discussion (for which you will need to have conversational English), working through scenarios and video. Assessment by your Trainer will take place informally throughout the day.

Learners must be on screen for the whole of the course – there are short breaks worked into the training day. The course ends with a short quiz. Most importantly, you need to be able to fully take part. When the class is over, the session will end, and you will click your ‘end meeting’ button to leave the session.
