What will my learning experience be like? You will learn through:
- Pre-recorded videos sent out each week for you to learn from in your own time
- Live expert-led sessions every Monday, starting on 6th February. 2 live session times available (10.30am or 5.30pm GMT) to fit your schedule
- If you miss a live session you can still watch it in your own time later on
