This course is designed to be administered in one of two ways:
You will have 10 days from the start date you choose to login and view the course – you can run the course as many times as you want to within this 10 day period, and there is not a maximum number of delegates for the total course fee. All delegates must all be from your school or college, you can’t use the course to train staff from other centres. We do not provide individual certificates for delegates attending this course, but on request we can provide a certificate confirming that your school or college accessed the training. You may wish to add the name of each delegate who attended the course to this certificate so that they have a personalised copy for their CPD file.
Our course tutors can come to your school or college to run the training face to face. Please email for more information (admin at communicate-ed dot org dot uk).
For over a decade we have been running courses across the country, aiming to provide high quality, value for money training for education professionals working in the area of special needs. Many of our delegates are telling us that it is increasingly difficult for busy professionals to take the opportunity to attend courses ‘off-site’. In response to this, we now offer a number of online training courses, focusing on Examination Access Arrangements, Assessment, and Supporting SEN Students.
With the internet now so accessible, the advantages of online courses are clear:
Courses can be viewed at any time, and in any venue where there is a good internet reception.
You will have 10 days (or for some courses 20 days) from the start date you choose to login and view the course. You can run the course as many times as you want to within this 10/20 day period.
Please note that if you book as a group using one of our second or subsequent delegate discounts, due to the login requirements, it is only possible for one login at a time to be used to access the course. It won’t be possible for more than one delegate to be accessing the course on different computers at the same time.
If a group of delegates are accessing a course together, all delegates must be from your school/college; you can’t use the course to train staff from other centres.
N.B. Delegates will need a good broadband connection to access our online courses.
