Live Streamed Workshops

Online workshops will be held via Microsoft Teams Live Stream (please note: you do NOT need a Microsoft Teams account to watch a live stream). Upon confirming your booking, you will be sent a link to the live stream. Minimal tech skills are required for you to attend, but please download our handy guide if you are struggling. 

Online sessions include a live introduction by the team and a chance for your students to ask questions after the sessions. The content has been written to correspond with the national curriculum. All sessions last between 30 to 60 minutes and as such, we recommend setting aside an hour to complete online sessions. 

Our live streams are safeguarded with participating classes only able to see us as the presenter - there is no way for anyone else to see participants. When using the Q&A feature on the live stream, we will only publish questions that are anonymous if we have more than one school participating.  

Workshop costs:

Online workshops are charged at a rate of £30.00 per session. If more than one class takes part in the session, it is a single charge.

If you need to book several time slots for different classes or would like to book multiple different workshops, these will be charged at an additional £30.00 per session.

Charges are invoiced directly to your school.

Online workshops are available on a first come, first serve basis. To enquire, please email us or use our online booking form.
