  • If accessing through a web browser, we recommend using Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge.  Please ensure your browser is up to date as out of date browsers can limit functionality.

We have temporarily suspended our course booking facility on the Provider Portal. 

The majority of our online live sessions will be held through Microsoft Teams. To book a place on any of the courses listed, please contact us.

If you enrol on a course and there is a place available, you will be sent joining instructions and any applicable resources. Please contact us if you do not receive a reply from us following your enrolment.  Where a course is over-subscribed, we will do our best to run the course again and you will be notified.  Please note that we are unable to take course bookings over the telephone.

Please note that delegate email addresses, provided at the point of booking a training course place, will be visible to other participants on all of these platforms. In some cases online training courses will be recorded and shared with other course participants for information (when this occurs it will be stated in the course outline within the training programme).

There is a charge for nursery schools and schools - contact us for details.
