How does access work? You tell us which courses you would like and how many students you wish to provide access to, we provide you with an invoice, you sign our course access agreement. Cnce we receive the agreement and payment, access is granted.

How do the students access the courses? We'll create a bespoke school for your access. You will provide a secure copy (we are fully GDPR and confidentiality compliant in the storage of data) of the student details and we'll automatically enrol them. They will then have direct access to the course content (we've found so far that if you leave it up to the students to enrol themselves, sign up rates are poor. If we automatically enrol them then engagement is much, much higher).

Do we need to renew each year? Students gain access to the courses for the year of purchase. If you wish to maintain access for the student throughout their course of study, you will need to renew access each year.

How long does access last for? Each student will retain their enrolment for 1 year.

What can students do after course access expires? If students wish to sustain access to course material, our membership access will provide them with further engagement with a supportive community, live Q&As and masterclass webinars.
