Participants may find it helpful to have watched our 10 minute introductory webinar prior to attending the training.

This is an online session, lasting 1.5hrs from 3.45pm-5.15pm. We recommend that you join 5-10 minutes prior to the start to ensure your technology is working correctly as we will be unable to delay the start due to the number of delegates we anticipate attending.

If you have any special needs that may require assistance, please do let us know at the time of booking, in order that we can discuss arrangements in advance. Thank you.

The PDA Society is also able to deliver a more in-depth course over 3hrs (delivered in 1 session or over 2 x 1.5hr sessions) specifically for professionals within education. This course expands on the general ‘helpful approaches’ of the shorter session and looks at strategies for the classroom in more detail.
