BSCP Everyone's Responsibility
Date & Time:
All training between September 2020 and December 2021 will now take place as virtual events.
The key points of switching from face to face to virtual training to make delegates aware of are as follows: -
- Please ensure your e-mail address within your user account is current and spelt correctly as this will be passed onto our training provider who will e-mail you directly (approx. 5 working days before the course start date) with the invitation containing the Zoom ID and password in order to access the course.
- Your e-mail address will only be passed onto the organisation commissioned to deliver the training.
- The platform that will be used to deliver virtual training is Zoom. Please ensure you have the most up to date Zoom App uploaded onto your device in advance of the training take place.
- On the day of the event, the training should be accessed via a laptop/desktop in order for delegates to get the full benefits of the course.
- Please be aware that emails from the BSCP Learning Management System and Training Provider may appear in your Junk Mail rather than your Inbox, depending on your own system set up/firewall, so please check your junk regularly.
- The BSCP’s usual Charging and Cancellation Policy will apply (located on our website), however, there will be a reduction in fee to reflect no refreshments being provided and the loss of the “classroom” learning environment. For non-contributing agencies to the BSCP financially the charge will be £100.00 (usually £120.00) per delegate, per training day and for Voluntary/Charity organisations within Buckinghamshire the charge will be £50.00 (usually £60.00) per delegate, per training day.
- Whilst the course content will remain as publicised regardless of it being delivered as face to face or virtual training the way in which the course is delivered will differ, due to the environment.
- Delegates are expected to attend the course in full in order to receive their course certificate.
- The number of delegates on virtual courses will be slightly lower than our face to face events.
- In the event that a colleague needs to replace you on one of our virtual courses at short notice, please arrange for the replacement colleague to set up a user account ideally before the event and e-mail the training team to advise them of the change and confirm that a user account has been set up. Whilst we will make every effort to ensure the replacement delegate receives the Zoom invitation and notify the trainer of the change, we also suggest the original delegate passes the Zoom meeting ID and password onto their colleague. On the day of the event, please also ensure the replacement delegate makes the trainer aware at the start of the course of the change to avoid incurring a non-attendance charge for the original delegate.
- This is a new way of working for everyone including us! Please bear with us if there are any teething problems and feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any feedback, thank you.
