a weekend or in the evening.

5. Your confirmation email will be sent to you. Once you receive your email confirmation, which includes your login details you can login to Learning Link and start
to use it whenever you want to.

* If your school or academy is not listed, it may not be signed up to Learning Link. In this case please select the “My group has not been listed” box and an email will come through to us so that we can contact you.

If you are a Governor of a school which buys into a traded service package you can access the Learning Link at your convenience, which gives you greater flexibility to choose when and where you train or seek information. 
Learning Link supplements rather than replaces conventional face-to-face training days and provides the opportunity to request further training or information and support.
