You will also receive an email with your login details for future access (please check your spam folder). 

Is this course accredited?

At the moment this course is not accredited. Having worked in HE for over 30 years I really felt that it was important to make a course like this accessible and affordable. Making it eligible for university credit would bring the price up by several hundred euro, so we’re keeping the cost low and offering this as an opportunity for your own personal development as a teacher.

What should I do if I have technical issues?

Please contact support and we will work to resolve your issues as soon as possible. 

I run an organisation. Can all of my teachers take this course?

Yes! The course is available to groups using a multi-user license. Here’s how it works:

Step 1: One person/organisation pays the group’s tuition.
Step 2: By the next business day, we will email that person a coupon code to give to the other people in the group. Each person can then use the coupon code to purchase their own single-user license for free.

For groups of teachers packages with additional training and/or mentoring included are also available. Please contact me directly for more information.
