Summary of planned & scheduled virtual workshops (via Zoom)
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, we are now running some virtual workshops via Zoom. As with all our workshops, they will be run by experienced healthcare professionals.
We want to ensure that our customers (present and future) have access to evidence-based, clinically relevant diabetes training appropriate to their role / workplace. The ultimate aim being to make a positive difference to people living with diabetes and their quality of life.
More information about the full range of our workshops, including their content, can be found on our workshops page.
Our face to face workshops are held as small, interactive groups which include activities and practical sessions. In the virtual setting this is less easy to achieve, however we will endeavour to accommodate interactive elements to the workshops and video based demonstrations if live ones are not possible. Learners who attend a virtual workshop and wish to attend a face to face workshop at a later date to experience the practical element of the training (and have a refresher!), will qualify for a discount for the face to face workshop.
If you or your organisation has a particular interest or training need relating to any of the workshops within our training portfolio, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to discuss how we can work together to help 'virtually' until our face to face training is (safely) possible again.
Dates will be continue to be scheduled over the coming weeks - please register your interest by emailing us at
firstname.lastname@example.org or using the form on our 'contact us' page.
Our virtual workshops will be advertised on the 'eventbrite'* ticketing platform. If you are unable to pay by credit/debit card or Paypal via 'eventbrite', please contact us to discuss other payment options (i.e. cheque or BACS). All places booked must be paid for in advance. Prices advertised include an electronic copy of the slides presented during the training session along with a 'useful links/resources' handout. An electronic attendance certificate will be emailed to the learners after the workshop has taken place.
Virtual platform information
The virtual platform we will be using for these sessions will be 'Zoom'* (unless otherwise stated). Once your place(s) has been booked and paid for, will receive a confirmatory email. A few days before the virtual workshop is due to take place each person due to attend will be sent an email detailing how to join n the virtual session (link and passcode). Therefore if you are booking places on behalf of colleagues, you will need to provide us with the names and email address of each person who will be attending the workshop (to ensure they gain access and also receive a copy of the slides and certificate). You will be reminded of this and how to provide us with their details in your confirmatory booking email. If you do not receive this please do not hesitate to contact us.
