Fees

All of our online courses are competitively priced with purchase options for both individuals and centres.

So that the training is cost effective, we provide two options:

  1. Individual teacher training
    This training is ideal for teachers who are teaching Signature qualifications. Individual teacher training allows access for one teacher and can be completed in one sitting or in stages.
    Upon completion of the training, the teacher will complete an evaluation form and enter their email address. An email will be sent to confirm attendance and provide evidence of the number of CPD hours achieved.

    Completed the training and received your email but want to view it again?
    Don’t worry; you have access to the online training content for 90 days from the date purchased. You can also refer to your printed support pack.

  2. Group teacher training Group teacher access is designed for centres to offer their staff training, as a group session. It allows up to 10 teachers to come together and train as a group, giving them the opportunity to discuss and generate ideas with their colleagues.
    At the end of the training session, the person co-ordinating the training will complete the evaluation form, on behalf of the teachers and enter the email addresses of each attendee.
    An email will be sent to each teacher who completed the training. The email confirms attendance and provides evidence of the number of CPD hours achieved

    Completed the training but teacher(s) want to view it again?
    Don’t worry; when the teachers have completed the group session, the online content remains available, for 90 days from the date purchased. So if the group or an individual needs to refer back to the training the person co-ordinating can provide access.
