Applications


Applications to Events (course, conference, meeting or other item)  should be made on-line either by individual Teachers, Governors or associated staff. All users are required to register for an account, subject to central authorisation. 

Applications to book on to an Event will be sent to the Line Manager / CPD Approver of the User's registered Establishment. Bookings are reserved and not confirmed until approved by the Line Manager / CPD Approver.


Applications should be made at least 2 weeks prior to the course date, as Course Organisers will be deciding on course viability at that time.


It is expected that applicants for programmes that are scheduled to run over a number of days or across the three terms of the year will attend all sessions in the programme.
