Our Virtual Training Model
Virtual sessions will be over Microsoft Teams with 4 sessions spread over 5 weeks with week 3 off. Each session lasts up to 3 1/2 hours, depending on the group size.
There will never be more than 4 people in each small tutorial group. This is to allow for good group discussion and time for practicing skills during the sessions.
We use a blended learning model with an approach of explaining the tool, demonstrating the tool and then you practicing the tool.

- 4 small group tutorial sessions of up to 3 1/2 hours, which include videos demonstrations
- practice via role play
- an optional post-course 1:1 mentoring session with Dr Laura Stewart at a cost of £75 for 40 minutes via Microsoft Teams or Zoom.
There is a minimum number of participants required for the tutorials session to run.
