How this works

In return for a free†place†on†a†course you have chosen the host school:

  1. Gets together the participants and act as our point of contact. Participants can be from your school or can be from other schools.†
  2. Provides a room†with a projector that’s suitable for D&T activities (in most cases it doesn’t need to be a D&T room but good access to†electrical†sockets is needed). A room that avoids steps is best†because†of equipment we bring (unless†there’s†a lift).†
  3. Provides basic refreshments when people arrive and at breaks (e.g. hot and cold drinks and biscuits and fruit). Your school also provides a basic buffet style lunch, usually in the training room (e.g. sandwiches, crisps, cake, fruit).†

Organising the course

Option 1

We can†coordinate the bookings†which includes processing bookings, collecting fees, sending out travel information etc.†

Option 2

Alternatively your school can choose to coordinate the bookings (including processing bookings, collecting fees, sending out travel information etc.) and this gives you the†option of charging participants a fee you set yourself which means you can offset some of your own costs.†We invoice your school based on the number of people who attend using the fees listed above (your school still gets a free place).
