We know its important to our changing workforce and we ask that you understand we work within the constraints that limit us.
We ask where possible that you are accompanied by a partner, family member or carer so you can attend the sessions. We won’t charge for partners to be present but we can’t guarantee you’ll be able to sit in the sessions with your child(ren) all the time. With access to the livestream and slido for questions we hope you can be as engaged as possible. We know this might not be adequate enough in all cases, and do ask for your understanding on this.
