Each of our three online sessions will be 1 hour long and the event is offered as a "drop in” - so you can attend any or all that you would find useful. Simply join the relevant session via the link 10 mins before the session start. Time is available at the end of each session to ask questions.

Sessions will be delivered via Adobe Connect.
