Can I invite local schools to join the course?
Yes, we encourage you to open the course out to local schools. The course becomes more cost effective the more delegates you have. We also offer regional training solutions, you could be a host school for a teacher course in your local area.
I want to bring my students to a student conference but don't know how many will attend...
You can make a provisional booking to secure your places for as many students as you wish without any commitment. We will let you know when we need you to confirm your numbers and at this point we will need your final numbers. We do understand, however, that it can be difficult pulling together a group of students and therefore we allow leeway of 2 or 3 students even after you have confirmed.
I need to plan risk assessments, book travel and send letters to parents - where in London will the event be held?
All our conference venues in London are either in zone 1 or in the Tufnell Park area (20 minutes from King’s cross).
What is the minimum number of students neccessary to receive a free teacher place?
