The advertised content may be subject to minor changes

This is delivered online as a half day course and places can be reserved for small numbers of staff.


For larger numbers, the training can be delivered to your staff teams in a single organisation. This has the advantage of allowing more time for questions and tailoring the content, so it is specific to your setting. To request delivery of this training online or face to face at your organisation please email techability@natspec.org.uk.

Note: If delivered on-site for a single organisation, this will run as a full day (09:30-15:00). In this case the delivery is organised so that delegates will have time to explore the solutions during the session.
