Each session will be 2 hours with a short break in the middle.
Virtual classroom is as near as you can get to a face-to-face event, learners connect on-line and participate fully with the facilitator. The bite-size sessions will be short, sharp and effective! Each session will have a maximum of 8 participants.
Your facilitator, Diana Edmonds, of Bridgford Consultancy, is accredited as an on-line facilitator by the Learning & Performance Institute. https://www.bridgfordconsultancy.co.uk/our-services/virtual-classroom/
Sessions are hosted on Cisco WebEx and Diana will provide guidance on how to join.
For non-LIEM members, places are available at a cost of £30. If sessions are over-booked we will allocate places as fairly as possible. Further sessions may be arranged depending on demand.
Note: If attending during working hours, please gain permission from your line manager.
