Wide range of virtual training launched by British Dyslexia Association
Wednesday 22 April 2020
When the COVID-19 lockdown came into effect, we started work to convert our in-person training programme over to virtual training to replicate the benefits of in-person training but from the comfort and safety of your home.
Following the success of our pilot sessions, we are delighted to announce we are now taking bookings for a large range of virtual training sessions. You can also book bespoke virtual training for your organisation via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Virtual training is live and interactive. In order for you to get the most out of this, we limit sessions to 15 delegates. Expect what you would from our in-person training, Q&A time, videos, activities and material you can take away to support with putting your new knowledge into action.
The technology is easy to use and a host is available on each session to support with any technical hitches you might hit. If you have a computer and internet connection you have successfully used for video calling via software like Skype or Zoom in the past, you’ll be able to access our virtual training.
Just like our in-person and eLearning training, all courses receive a CPD certificate and count towards our accredited Level 2, 3 and 5 courses.
All sessions are a day’s training in total split over two half-day slots and cost £120 in total.
The session was very informative, and I will be able to put a lot of what I have learnt into the classroom. The technical support in the session was fantastic and any issues I had were quickly and successfully attended too. The instructor was extremely knowledgeable and answered questions extremely well. "The session had a good pace to it and was as good as I think you could get without being an in-person session.”
